IMO a thread about Simon Phillips isn't complete without mentioning his work on 801 Live
with Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno.
His power, energy, tightness and speed was awesome on East of Asteroid
) from that album, which was a mashup of Phil's East of Echo
and Quiet Sun's Mummy Was an Asteroid, Daddy Was a Small Non-Stick Kitchen Utensil
(yes, that's what it was called :)
It's hard not to like a guy who can not only do the "herd of stampeding elephants" double kick thing and
super smooth grace notes.
As a side note, Quiet Sun was an experimental project of Phil M's while he was still with Roxy and featured the excellent Charles Hayward on kit and Bill McCormack on bass.
