Biography

Born on 21 September 1954, in Chesterfield, England, Taylor replaced Motörhead's first drummer, Lucas Fox, during the recording of the band's self-titled 1977 debut album, Motörhead. Lemmy explains choosing him to play in Motörhead 'because he had a car and could give a lift back down to the studio, the drummer they had wasn't working out very well and Phil kept saying that he could play'. Taylor introduced the band to "Fast" Eddie Clarke, having worked with him while painting a houseboat. September 21 is the 264th day of the year (265th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

In 1978, Taylor, Lemmy and Clarke interrupted one of The Damned's Chiswick album sessions, turning it into a recorded 'jam session', one track from this - "Ballroom Blitz", appeared as the B-side of "I Just Can't be Happy Today". Shortly after recording 1980's classic Ace of Spades album, Taylor broke his neck after being lifted above the head of a friend in a test of strength, only to be dropped upon his head. Taylor continued to play in Motörhead with the aid of a neck brace, as is visible in the music video for "Ace of Spades". As a result, Taylor now has a prominent lump located on the back of his neck (affectionately referred to as his "knob"), thought to be a calcium deposit caused by his previous spinal trauma. Tour-disrupting injuries were not unfamiliar to Taylor at the time, as he had previously broken his hand whilst punching a man outside of his flat in London. In typical uncompromising Motörhead style, Taylor continued to drum by duct-taping his drum stick into his hand until it had sufficiently healed.
