Drummer from United Kingdom

Dolphin Taylor Brian "Dolphin" Taylor (born 10 November 1958) is a British drummer. Dolphin's first band was Dragon's Playground, which earlier had had Annie Lennox as a flautist. In 1976 Dragon's Playground appeared on ATV's New Faces. His career with the Tom Robinson Band started when Dolphin gave a friend a lift to an audition as bass guitarist for the Tom Robinson Band in 1976. As the band had no drummer at that point, Dolphin (who was already a drummer) filled in. By the end of the evening, the band was still looking for a bass guitarist, but had found their drummer. He stayed for two years, eventually resigning in 1978. In 1982 he joined Stiff Little Fingers, playing on the £1.10 or less EP, and the Now Then... album, before the band split in 1983. In 1983 after the demise of SLF, Taylor become the 'sometimes go to' session drummer for producer Nick Tauber. Towards the end of 1983 through his work with Nick Tauber, he was introduced to and joined Spear of Destiny as their full time drummer. Dolphin became a part of The Engine Room, the Spear of Destiny rhythm section, along with bass player Stan Stammers. He left Spear of Destiny in 1986 after they were dropped by their record label CBS,  ( Wikipedia article )
