Default Most amazing groove by Simon Phillips! ( video inside )

Hello fellow boardmembers. yes, I know that I've been posting tons of SP videos but I recently got some video bootlegs with him and this is a drumforum so what the heck!

Anyway, Here's a video taken at a clinic in 2004 I believe where Simon plays the ending of his solo. And It's really cool. His bassdrums are doing one, his right hand is playing a solid beat and the left hand is constantly playing the octobans at another tempo. Comments are wecome! :)


HERE it is!!!

This is an updated version of something he did in one of his DCI videos. I'm not saying it's easy, but it's more connected than you might think. Here's how part of it goes together.
The left hand and the feet are playing groups of 3 16ths, but the left hand is going around the 4 octobans. Then with the right hand he's playing a kick snare pattern with the gong bass drum. The whole thing is moving at the same rate/tempo though. What makes it extra tricky is how long the whole pattern plays before it all lines up the same way again. I hope that makes some kind of sense. Check out his DCI video for a "slower" version of it.

Hey guys. I found some new pictures taken of Simon Phillips. These were taken in early April 2006 on the "Falling In Between" tour that TOTO is doing right now.

Simon is...awesome, amazing, great, outstanding, cool, relaxed, fast, tasteful, just unbelievable!
I love his style, he changed TOTO in a cool way, more mordern rock, more prog.

Sir Simon Phillips is a great character.

Default A very intense drumsolo by Simon Phillips ( Video inside )

Yes, I know some people don't like him and his soloing but I don't care. hahahaha.

Anyway, here's a drumsolo taken during the Toto tour in 2000 in Bulgaria. This is one of the more intense solos I've seen of Simon and I think It's a very good one too.

Sorry about the sound problem. It's about 1-2 seconds after the video but It's definitely "watchable"!

Here it is!!!


Feel free to comment!!

I agree with Drummer Karl, that was the best solo I have seen from him. Nice use of the octobans and BDs together. Very cool solo.

Ohhh come on..........LOL


Simon has way more caliber than what he demonstrated on that cool clip............

He's one of the greatest Drummers alive today, I don't understand why any of his clips from his 2 instructional vidoe's (made around 11 years ago) are not on here at drummerworld. If you think that solo above is something (and its cool) get both of his instructional videos, and behold man! Purely Awesome.

Simons Instructional Video packs

The second video is "Simon Returns" we're talkin some seriously sick talent, man!

Nice find,

And its about time Simon gets some real play here, but may I suggest watching the entire video because this cat is world class. But wait until you watch his second video DVD called "Simon Returns" in this set this cat delivers true talent and really takes the chain off and lets go. I see why he's wanted by every musician on the planet.

Yo Dap! Thanks for posting! I have both his videos ( though only the first one on DVD and the second on VHS ) and his playing is sooo freakin good! His playing on the Simon Phillips Returns video is without any doubt, the best playing I EVER heard from him!

Monster fills...I liked the one that started at about 1:31 with the double kick/tom fill. That had a great rolling feel to it. Thanks for posting!

Impressive Hi-hat work amongst other things.

But there was no rhythm or melody motif running through the solo. I imagine a lot of non-drummers would have found this a turn-off.

Well, you're right about that but in the end, there are tons of rhytms with all the things that's going on ;) ( kickdrums, snaredrum & gongdrum )
