I like Phil's playing- it swings hard and was often filled with little weird unconventional things or 'techniques' that came from him being self taught. Plus, though his playing was declining in the 'Rock and Roll' period, he knew when to play a lot of notes (i.e. 'One to Sing the Blues') and hardly any (i.e. the flams in 'We Are The Road Crew'.)

Please note that my comment had nothing to do with Filthy's drumming. I was just making a comment. Yes, it's just a video, but it looks stupid. Again, just a comment. I never said he couldn't play or wasn't good. Just said I hated watching him in the video. Lemmy and Fast Eddie seemed to be playing the correct material on the song (even though it's JUST a video). Motorhead are legends, I have nothing but respect for that band.
