Re: Phil Gould
I enjoyed Phil Gould's playing immensely, and he was popular drummer at the time.
He seemed like a laid-back character and this seemed to suit Mark King's brilliant but busy bass playing.
Level 42's stuff is just great to learn and practice to. Essential for any funky player. There are some subtleties in his playing that is just superb.
Gary Husband is being pretty modest here. I think Level 42 peaked as they were becoming a world act, and I think this is why Phil left. I practiced to "Staring At The Sun" too!
