(Classic Rock) Lemmy Kilmister has led the tributes to former Motorhead drummer Phil Taylor who died this week at the age of 61. The frontman tells Classic Rock he's "devastated" to have lost one of his best friends as he also remembered former Motorhead guitarist Michael 'Wurzel' Burston, who died in 2011.

Lemmy says: "I'm feeling very sad at the moment, in fact devastated because one of my best friends died yesterday. I miss him already. His name was Phil Taylor, or Philthy Animal, and he was our drummer twice in our career."

He added, "We're still going, we're still going strong, it's just first Wurzel and now Filthy, it's a shame man. I think this rock'n'roll business might be bad for the human life." Read more here.
