Former Motorhead drummer "Philthy Animal" Phil Taylor has died aged 61. Taylor played with Motorhead from 1975 to 1984 and 1987 to 1992. According to the band's website, Taylor quit in February 1984 after the band recorded a version of Ace of Spades for the television series The Young Ones. But he rejoined three years later and was present on all the band's major albums, including Overkill, Bomber, Ace of Spades, and live recording No Sleep 'til Hammersmith. He was fired in 1992 during the recording of the March or Die album after he failed to learn the drum tracks on the song, I Ain't No Nice Guy.
