Yes! He's the man for me.

Here's a track from Jon Lord's solo album "Before I Forget" from early 80's with a young Simon Phillips, mind blowing stuff, at 5:53 the double bass goes to sextuplets! incredible...

It's Jon Lord's version of Toccata & Fugue by Johann Sebastian Bach...

Awe man, that's just further wonderfulness. You really do have some knowledge of who played with who. After being out of the game so long, I'm largely ignorant of such gems. Thank you very much for highlighting lovely stuff (although that did cost me a couple of hours of listening to John Lord clips on Youtube :) )

Thanks for the kind comments Andy :-))

Sorry that I "forced" you to listen to Jon, however, I must point out that Simon's not playing all the songs on Jon Lord's album, it's shared with 2 other greats of the "rock" giants, namely Ian Paice and Cozy Powell (R.I.P.)...

Here's another fabulous track by Mr monster groove's Simon Phillips with Mo Foster on bass (from the RMS trio) on the first solo album by Russ Ballard (the band Argent's guitatrist). The song's called "voices" and it's a hell of a rock groove... enjoy!

When asked about his drum set, Simon said many drum sets have 10 pieces, but this one goes up to 11.

And you know what Andy? the whole album is stuffed with groove like that... But "Voices" is my favourite song.

Just had an idea, could we start a thread showing the "not so obvious work" by Simon? YouTube videos, mp3, etc.

I'm sure there's hardcore fans who would like something like this, but on the other hand, I don't know if it has already been done. I didn't wanted to go through the hundreds of pages of the "Drummers" section to find out.

What do you think? Should we have a go?

A: Very True! I'm a hardcore Judas Priest follower on both: music career and drummers since Alan Moore, John Hinch, Simon Phillips, Les Binks, Dave Holland and Scott Travis.

Yes! Back (Bach) then, I was totally blew away...

A: Go for it! I back you up...You can also call it "Simon's B-side (work)."

Excellant drummer and a fine musician! Not a fan of the drum sound in that video I liked to hear more distinction between the toms and its possible that the lack of different sizes missing in intricate places lended to that. Great snare sound and kick drum all though it could have been more promient in the mix.
I enjoy listening to Mr. Phillips and he surrounds himself with excellant players now too.

Good for you Doc!
Check out my new thread "Simon Phillips B-Sides - The Rarities" on the "Drummers" section, you'll enjoy some of Simon's little gems and treasures.

I will post some incredible pieces from Mr Phillips for a few days. And some will be posted by other members too.

I appreciate it, I found a video with Simon meeting the Father of Double Bass Drumming Mr. Louis Belison. That was really fun to watch and you can see respect and admiration in their eyes. Mr. Pillips had a grin ear to ear you could see how he enjoyed performing with Louie. Louie was considered one of the kindest musicians ever and would go out of his way to help any musician. Imagine the music in his house hold while he was married to Ella Fitzgerald????? That house was filled with great music for sure. Doc

Do you guys really feel that this is fair, putting up the most amazing stuff by one of my all-time idols, so I can't get anything else done? It's just so heartless. When I grow up, I hope I can achieve just a small degree of "beautiful, free, and flawless". And thanks to Simon for teaching us that through his playing.
