The Disappearance of Iron Butterly's Phil Kramer

Recommended Posts

Philip "Taylor" Kramer, bassist

The mysterious disappearance of one-time Iron Butterfly bassist 

Philip "Taylor" Kramer, 42, has come to a tragic conclusion with 

  the May 29, 1999, discovery by hikers of his 1993 Ford Aerostar 

  van at the bottom of a Malibu, Calif., ravine. Skeletal remains 

 found inside and near the vehicle were confirmed through dental 

records to be those of Kramer. 

Kramer's Feb. 12, 1995, disappearance has been the subject of 

 numerous TV shows due both to his connection with Iron Butterfly 

 and his involvement with government projects, lending X-Files–like 

 conspiracy overtones to his vanishing. Unfortunately, most reports 

 have given the mistaken impression that he was with Iron Butterfly 

 during the band's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" days when in fact he 

 was only with the band during a mid-70s re-formation.

He graduated from night school with straight A's and got a job at

Northrup, working on the  design of the MX missile. At the time of his

disappearance, he had  reportedly discovered a mathematical

formula that would allow matter to travel faster than the speed of

light. His involvement in  projects of this nature have led to theories

that he was abducted or  murdered.

Nothing about the death that rules any of those theories out really.

Here's an old video of them performing InaGaddavida in 1968. I had a front row seat at the Atlantic City Pop festival during their heydey - probably screwed up my eardrums :lol:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
