(Guitar, Vocals)

Phil got his first unplayable guitar at the tender age of thirteen. He started gigging in the 1970’s with heavy rockers ‘Landslide’ (and side project ‘Baby Huey’) and ‘Warbeck’, before joining ‘Oasis’ (not that ‘Oasis’). In the eighties, he performed with girl-fronted new wave bands ‘Stiletto’ and ‘Erogenous Zones’ before forming heavy metal bebop outfit ‘The Flakes’. Other bands he was involved with during the decade were ‘It Hz’, ‘Placebo’ (not that ‘Placebo’ either), club group ‘Malibu’, and ‘McCallum’. Persuaded to come out of retirement in the noughties, Phil joined ‘Texas Flood’ , ‘The Steve Daggett Electric Band’ (and spin-off duo ‘DNA’), Faith Healer and ‘Rattlesnake Road’. A veteran of stage, screen, studio and wireless. (Gigged all over the UK and Bahrain; been on telly; featured on diverse recordings such as ‘Stiletto’ single ‘Video’, Larn Yersel Geordie’s ‘Radio Jarra Slax’, ‘Psalm II’ debut album, ‘Placebo’s’ second LP, Middlesbrough Football Club’s ‘We Are Men Of Iron, We Are Men Of Steel’. Heads Held High soundtrack, Gazza’s version of ‘Fog On The Tyne’ (kept off No.1 spot by Robson Greens pants version of ‘Unchained Melody’), Steve Daggett’s first two solo CD’s, single and DNA live CD; performed live sessions on Radio One. He would just like a nice sit down, please.
