Did you know that Simon Phillips replaced Mark on the 1993 Big Country album "The Buffalo Skinners" while Mark was exploring the world as a session drummer. It's an interesting album as there's a couple of songs which were previously recorded by Mark on their previous 1991 album, the feel is so different, not just from a drumming point of view, the whole vibe of the song is different.
Decidely, these 2 drummers keep crossing each other. :-))
