Well, for once, we're not gonna just listen to Simon playing wonderfull drumming pieces, we are going to listen to the man himself.

Just a little insight of the world of Simon Phillips during the Falling In Between tour with Toto.

The Hoshino (Tama/Ibanez) 90th anniversary concert in 1997 with Andy Timmons and Simon Phillips, fusion rock! ...

Wonderful! I've viewed that interview before, & still take much from it. The remarkable thing for me is the sense of relaxation underpinned by incredible accuracy. When Simon's demoing the Africa groove, every little part is so precisely stitched together, it goes beyond concentration, & is transported into that unique space, instinct. Just listen to how accurately he controls the opening of the hats. I know of no other player who works with such joy within complexity.
