If youve ever partied in Creekside, chances are youve partied with Creekside Phil. The black brimmed hat and tie-dyed shirt wearing, long-haired musicman has been synonymous with the area since 1993. From his famous backyard camp fires to his Open Mic Nights at venues across the valley, Phil is a living local legend, getting better with age like a fine Led Zeppelin vinyl. Hes hitting Hozs stage this Saturday night, Feb. 22 for a night of classic rock and twisted tunes. We grilled Phil Richard for some facts for the fans:
He had a pet crow called Cornelia. He found her as a baby when shed fallen out of her nest and she went everywhere with him until she discovered McDonalds. "I took her in when her parents rejected her but she left on her one year birthday. I still see her at McDonalds but she doesnt associate with me anymore. Crows are very territorial."
He used to have a shaved head. "I worked for the mountain as a staff co-ordinator for a while so had to get rid of it but Ive been growing it now since Christmas 95."
Hes played with almost every local musician in the area, although his current projects are Cold Snap at the Boot on Thursday night, Frost Heave and Whole Lotta Led, the Led Zeppelin tribute band.
