Philip James Selway (born May 23, 1967) is the drummer of alternative rock band Radiohead.
He was born in Abingdon, Berkshire (now Oxfordshire, England). Phil has a wife, Cait, and three sons: Leo, Jamie, and Patrick (to whom Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief were dedicated, respectively).
His mother Thea died during a Radiohead tour in middle May 2006. The band cancelled one of their dates in Amsterdam, so that Phil could carry out his family duties:
Just wanted to say sorry to the people who were due to come to our show in Amsterdam last night, particularly those who made wasted journeys. My mum died suddenly in the early hours of yesterday morning and so I just wanted to be at home with my family. Mum was a big Radiohead fan, and was very proud of all we've done as a band. I love and miss her very much.
The band later returned to Amsterdam in August to play the missed show. The discbox and CD release of In Rainbows mentions a dedication to Thea Selway.
