When Lemmy died, long-time guitarist Phil Campbell said that keeping Motörhead on life support was not a viable option. So now what? Retire? In February 2016 Phil hit the studio to record his first solo album but before long another project got in the way. Earlier, Phil had teamed up with his sons Todd, Dane and Tyla - a bit of harmless fun, nothing more. Then the Campbell family tree hired promising young singer Neil Starr and all of a sudden they were in business. A self-titled EP dropped in November 2016, followed by a busy touring schedule during which father and sons played their own songs but also paid tribute to Phil’s main sources of inspiration - needless to say, this also included a fair number of Motörhead classics. Early 2018 saw the release of their full-length debut ‘The Age of Absurdity’. A string of concert dates followed but Phil still found the time to complete his solo album ‘Old Lions Still Roar’ (2019). This year though, the Campbells will be paying tribute to the ultimate rock ‘n’ roll band under the moniker ‘Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons play Motörhead’. (#GMM20)
