Phil was a fascinating character and we enjoyed every moment of our conversation with him on the podcast. From meeting Elvis to writing worldwide anthems like ‘Eve of Destruction’, he did it all and saw it all. He was a wonderful songwriter and the music world is poorer for his passing. RIP. — Simon and Brian, Sodajerker
What follows is the official press release issued by Serendipity Media.
It is with deepest sadness that we are announcing that P.F. Sloan (Phil) passed away on the evening of November 15, 2015, at his home in Los Angeles. Phil had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer several weeks before and was fighting it valiantly. The world has lost one of its great talents.
Phil was a key element on the music that became the sound of the Sunset Strip. Phil was a true prodigy, signing his first record deal with Aladdin Records when he was thirteen. He recently published his memoirs, What’s Exactly The Matter With Me? with S.E. Feinberg, and his latest album, My Beethoven has recently been released on Foothill Records.
P.F. Sloan’s ‘Eve Of Destruction’ was an anthem for a generation. It is as relevant now as it ever has been.
“There are no more escapes. If you want to find out anything that’s happening now, you have to listen to the music I don’t mean the words. Though, ‘Eve Of Destruction’ will tell you something about it.”— Bob Dylan.
