Motorhead Frontman Wishes Death Upon George Bush While Honoring Deceased Drummer

“I think this rock n roll business might be bad for the human life,” Lemmy Kilmister writes

God got the wrong guy. Or at least, that appears to be the sentiment of Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister.

A day after news broke that former Motorhead drummer Phill “Philthy Animal” Taylor had died at age 61, Kilmister took to Facebook to remember his fallen colleague.

And to lament that it hadn’t been George Bush instead.

“Hello this is Lemmy from Motörhead. 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,” Kilmister wrote.

“Now he’s died and it really pisses me off that they take somebody like him and leave George Bush alive. So muse on that,” Kilmister added.

Kilmister also referenced former guitarist Michael “Wurzel” Burston, who died at age 61 in 2011.

“We’re still going, we’re still going strong, it’s just first Würzel and now Philthy, it’s a shame man,” Kilmister wrote. “I think this rock n roll business might be bad for the human life. Oh well.”

Former Motorhead guitarist “Fast” Eddie Clarke announced Taylor’s death on Thursday, noting that he had been ill for some time.

“I have known Phil since he was 21 and he was one hell of a character. Fortunately we made some fantastic music together and I have many many fond memories of our time together. Rest in Peace, Phil,” Clarke added.

Taylor initially played with Motorhead from 1975 to 1984, rejoining the group in 1987 and continuing on with them until 1992. In addition to recording 10 studio albums with the group, Taylor played on the 1981 live album “No Sleep ’til Hammersmith.”
