His nickname was prompted by 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 was a solid groove player and vocalist.



After splitting from the Raiders, Volk worked in various ensembles including Rick Nelson and the Stone Canyon Band, The Brotherhood, and as leader of Fang and the Gang.
