Phil posts on DAS

Our hero has posted on Dead Air Space:


Thanks to everyone for their messages of condolence and support over the past few weeks - they really have been a great help. I have also really appreciated the respectful silence on DAS.... well, it's either that or nobody's had anything to say for a week and a half which, in my experience, is unlikely. See you in America.


Despite the obviously unfortunate reasons for why Phil has posted on DAS lately we're all glad to hear from him, hope he is recovering from his loss and that he will soon post again for more fortunate reasons.

We're proud of Phil and yes, we'll see him in America!

Happy 39th bithday, Phil!

On this day, May 23rd, in the lovely year of 1967, Phil selway, genius, English teacher and a musician was born.
We'd like to wish Phil a happy birthday and
we hope he can spend this day with the ones he loves and that he won't mind the late arrival of his birthday present from us Phillovers.
We congratulate him on being 39 years old and may he have many more birthdays to come!
He certainly deserves it!

Phil is fancy-fancy
and he makes us want to dancy-dancy!

The Phillovers are trying to create and update the Phil Selway pages on Wikipedia.

So far we've got:
Wiki in icelandic
Wiki in dutch
Wiki in english
Wiki in spanish
Wiki in french
Wiki in german
Wiki in hebrew?
Wiki in russian?

If you speak an other language(s) and you've got a lot of respect for Phil, could you please translate his biography into the language(s) you speak? Of course you can add or complete the information on the existing pages. If you made a translation but you don't know how to get it on wikipedia, send it to us ( We'll put it on line.


Dear Phil,

You might receive this after your birthday and we apologize deeply for that.

Because we know what honey means to you and because we know that other Radiohead members steal your honey when you're not there, we want to make sure you've got your honey always with you. That's why we give you this honey Phillovers T-shirt.

And remember: no matter how many radiohead members start drumming in your songs you will always be our one, true radiohead drummer!

The Phillovers


Philip "Phil" James Selway (born May 23, 1967 in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England) is the drummer of Radiohead. His precise timing and varied drumming helps to give the band its distinct sound. He is a year older than the other members in the band and people think he's unkind because he's bald. Of course it's not true, but that's why the other members of the band call him Bald Member (~bandmember). He joined Radiohead because their primitive drum computer broke down and they couldn't afford a new one. Before Radiohead became succesful, Phil studied English and history at Liverpool Polytechnic. He had worked for various touring musicians and worked as an English teacher as well. Phil has a wife, Kate, and three sons: Leo, Jamie, and Patrick (to whom Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief were dedicated, respectively).

Unlike bandmates Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, Phil has not had much involvement with projects outside of Radiohead. Nevertheless, in recent years he has taken a more active role in collaborating with other artists. He has been associated with the Samaritans as a devoter and member for years. Phil also performed with the band Dive Dive in March 2005 and appeared in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as a member of the band "The Weird Sisters" along with Radiohead bandmate Jonny Greenwood and Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker.
