Highlights


Some people just don‘t need no introduction. And this fine gentleman is high on top of that list: Phil Campbell, Welsh rock titan, MOTÖRHEAD guitarist for more than 30 years until the bitter end, father of that hard-rocking spawn called BASTARD SONS, rock and roll luminary. In short: the stuff six-string legends are made of. Slowly but steadily nearing his sixties, Phil Campbell still hasn‘t lost his hunger for the noise. After a highly successful record as PHIL CAMPBELL AND THE BASTARD SONS (the family rock act he pulled off with his own three sons) and a feverish run of live dates with the likes of GUNS’N’ROSES, he‘s about to shed his skin once again – only to reveal his own true self this time around.

Ladies and gentlemen, we finally give you Phil Campbell solo, no strings attached, straight in your face, no remorse rock and roll for a time in which exactly that is sorely missing. And believe us, it was a long way coming.

The title of his first solo record? Old Lions Still Roar. Oh yes, Mister Campbell, they do. And decidedly more so than the cubs. Armed with an arsenal of fierce riffing, anthemic hooks, pumping energy and no-holds-barred hard-rocking fuel, Campbell underlines his reputation as one of rock’s keenest preservers. “A good song is a good song”, he says about the record, “and obviously, there are some good classic rock songs on my solo debut. Yet, there are a few experimental songs that could be seen as a departure from those people who primarily know me from my work with MOTÖRHEAD which I am extremely proud of and always will be. But in most cases a musician is more than just one specific style. And on this album, I spread my wings a little bit here and there.”
