I agree on every count, I usually do not like Simon's solos (drums only), but when he does it over/with music, it's a whole different context... it does it for me too :)

Hi Drummerworld

I found this clip of Veronique Sanson live at The Olympia (Paris, France) from 1976, it feature the presentation of the musicians... and here you go, a 19 years old Simon Phillips on drums... he looks so young ...and the kit, my God, the kit... :)

Wow! How the hell did you find that Henri? The kit is something else. A pyramid of mounted Ludwig toms! Ah well, it was that time ;)

Have to say, I listened to the whole track. Vocals are - erm - an acquired taste. Over playing percussionist needs shooting on the spot. Even Simon dropping the odd "one fill too many". Ah well, I'm the same age as Simon, & if I think back to my playing at that time, there's no way I could grace that stage.

Priceless Henri :)

Nice find, but I can't stand the lyrics with the constant forced-vibrato going on.
