His nickname is derived from his prominent eye teeth! Phil “Fang” Volk served as bassist for Paul Revere and the Raiders for a brief time (1965-67) yet he did compose and sing on a few of their more notable slabs including Just Like Us (1966), Midnight Ride (1966), and “The Spirit of ’67 (1967).
Appearing with the Raiders on scores of high-profile TV shows, concerts, and teen magazines – Volk is a groove player, and backing vocalist who serves the song with pocket passages and occasional countermelodies as the situation warrants.
After splitting from the Raiders, Volk worked in various ensembles including Rick Nelson and the Stone Canyon Band, The Brotherhood, and continued on the bandstand as leader of Fang and the Gang.
