TR+ Singles Club: Phil Campbell And The Bastard Sons

Phil Campbell and the bastard sons

This week’s Singles Club is something a little bit special. In 2013, after Motorhead cancelled their regular winter UK tour, guitarist Phil Campbell turned up at Hard Rock Hell that November with a band made up of his sons. The result was one of the most craziest and funnest sets of the weekend – no frills, no fucking about, just an hour of Bourbon-fuelled party-rock anthems.

Since then, of course, everything has changed – Lemmy died, Motorhead came to an end – well, all except one thing: Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons are still one of the best nights out in rock. Last year, the Bastard Sons self-released an EP and just last month signed with Nuclear Blast. The first fruits of that partnership is a digital EP titled Live At Solothurn that captures the band in rude health and this week TeamRock+ members get a free song from that EP!

Take Aim (Live In Solothurn) is classic rock in the best traditions of UFO, Thin Lizzy and Motorhead – an unpretentious, uplifting, family affair that marks the continuing career of one of British rock’s best-beloved guitarists.
