Phil Campbell, Motorhead guitarist from Pontypridd, South Wales

Phil Campbell Guitarist with rock group Motorhead, of 'Ace of spades' fame. Now has his own band "Phil Campbell's All Starr Band".

Very much hope as a new chapter in his career develops we hear a Phil Campbell with new dimentions, new horizons.
