On the other hand, Phil wouldn't be able to produce the Dirty & Beautiful album - the Volume 2 edition comes out this February - so we all have our real strengths!
Back on the 42 thing, I recommend highly Pete Ray Biggin - the current drummer with the band. He's making that group feel really great right now in my estimation. Check him out!
Mr. Husband, I really like what you did with the band. Guaranteed and Staring at the sun are among my favourite Level 42 albums :)
Back on topic... I really like Phil. He's an amazing player and I learned and still am learning from him. And btw his massive Tama with SImmons pads was a spectacular kit which I always loved to watch :) Hope Phil is doing fine. All the best to him :)
