My Record Collection by Phil Campbell

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of Phil Campbell, long-time guitarist with Motörhead, currently preparing to release his debut album with his new outfit Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons, let's see what he chooses...

 

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"Jeepster by T Rex. I saw Marc Bolan and T Rex play it on Top Of The Pops on a Thursday and bought it on the Friday after school."

 

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"Deep Purple by Deep Purple. It has an amazing cover by Hieronymus Bosch and the opening song 'Chasing Shadows' got me hooked!"

 

The record I've played more than any other is… 

"This is The Gulley Flats Boys by Francis Dunnery. He’s an amazing songwriter, an amazing singer and one of my favourite artists of all time!"

 

The record that always makes me feel good is…

"I'd go for Joe Satriani's Surfing With The Alien. His guitar playing is always so inspiring and on this track, in particular, he uses very uplifting melodies."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"The Allman Brothers' Melissa. I love Gregg's voice and Dickey Betts' guitar tone!"

 

The record I think is the most underrated of all time is…

"Straight Lines' Persistence in this Game and The People The Poet's The Narrator, go and check them out!"

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"Led Zeppelin's Houses Of The Holy. I still have the original vinyl in gatefold sleeve!"

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"2 Ozs of Plastic with a Hole in the Middle by Man. Such an interesting title!"

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"If I see anything with Honey G in it, I'll avoid it immediately!"

 

The last record I bought was…

"Technically it was Listen Without Prejudice by George Michael."

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2017 is…

"I’m really looking forward to new albums from both Saxon and Judas Priest next year!"

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd. It was sonically, musically and lyrically way ahead of its time and is even more relevant in the world we live in today."

 

Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons' debut album The Age Of Absurdity is released on January 26th and is available to pre-order here in hmv's online store.
