“I guess things just rub off on you over a period of time. When I joined Motörhead, he did say one thing. He said, ‘Look, Phil, I trust you a hundred percent musically. You play what you feel is right. But just don’t wear shorts on stage.’ ‘Cause I think Brian Robertson had been wearing shorts on some gigs before me.

“I think he just said, ‘Make you’re always not ripping off fans, and they’re getting their value for their buck,’ which is always true. It’s just general, down-to-earth kind of stuff, really. [He was a] down-to-earth guy that just happened to play loud.”
