- Bull – Phillip Campbell

He also has multiple adopted brothers, including Mario “Chopper” Cianter, who was killed in the Milperra Massacre.
From a young age he was interested in hand-to-hand combat, originally taught by his grandfather how to box, and also had an interest in the game of rugby league.
Colin has been married to his wife, Donna, for several decades, they have multiple children. They were last known to be living around the Snowy Mountains region.
Colin Caesar Campbell Comanchero MC
His affiliation with outlaw-style motorcycle clubs began when he joined the Gladiators Motorcycle Club.
Colin, along with his brothers, joined Comanchero MC in 1978. Comanchero MC was led by Jock Ross, a Scottish military enthusiast who had a strong hold over the club and gave himself the title of Supreme Commander. Their clubhouse was based at 65 Harris Street, Harris Park, Sydney.
While in Comanchero MC Caesar was the Sergeant-At-Arms.
A second chapter of Comanchero MC was started in Sydney, the reasoning behind the new chapter has two possible explanations. Either that many of the members were sick of the heavy military-style hand that Jock Ross was holding over the group, or that Jock Ross was sleeping with another member’s wife, which was against the club rules. It is highly possible that it was a combination of the two that led to the split.
In 1982 Caesar moved to the Sydney City chapter of Comanchero MC along with his brothers. This new chapter was led by Anthony Snodgrass Spencer and their clubhouse was at 150 Louisa Road, Birchgrove, Sydney. A waterfront mansion looking onto Sydney Harbour.
Colin Caesar Campbell Bandidos MC
Meetings were held between members of the Sydney City chapter and Bandidos USA. It was decided that the Bandidos would patch over the Comanchero Sydney City chapter.
While in Bandidos MC he once again took up the role of Sergeant-At-Arms.
Tensions grew between Comanchero MC and Bandidos MC, coming to a head on Sunday 2 September, 1984 in an event which would later be called the Milperra Massacre, or also known as the Father’s Day Massacre.
