PHIL CAMPBELL - "My Time With LEMMY And MOTÖRHEAD Will Always Be Full Of Great Memories, And I Will Cherish That Time Always"
January 18, 2018, 5 years ago
In a new interview with eonmusic, guitarist Phil Campbell talks about the last days of Motörhead, and the passing of Lemmy Kilmister.
Speaking about the sudden end to the band, whom he'd been a part of for over three decades, Campbell said" "We knew Motörhead wouldn’t go on forever, but we were all obviously saddened and shocked when we found out about his [Lemmy’s] passing. It was only two weeks after a stormer of a show in Berlin."
Going on to talk about how he'd remember his time with Lemmy, the guitarist said: "My time with Lemmy and Motörhead will always be full of great memories, and I will cherish that time always."
Phil also talked about recording his new album The Age Of Absurdity in Wales: "Luckily we had a world class recording studio within an hour’s drive from my house, so it was ideal. I had never been there before, either, so it was an awesome experience recording the drum tracks there. I later found out my wife and I stayed in the same room there as Brian May!"
