Default Re: Video: Simon Phillips

I was hanging out at Atlanta Discount Music in the late eighties when I looked up and saw a poster advertising that Simon Phillips was going to be there in clinic. I was currently into Rocks, Pebbles & Sand by Stanly Clarke (great album with Simon), so I was stoked. I looked up and it just so happened to be that the next hour. I paid 3 dollars (which also included 3 kegs). So I sat there and drank beer while sitting directly behind Simon for 2 incredible hours. He went from drum tuning to style, technique, odd time etc...Rod Morgenstein just happened to stop by to check it out as well. I wish that was my Groundhog day.
