Default Breaking news : Simon Phillips' home burned down !!

This from Vic Salazars' Facebook page:

VIC’S BREAKING NEWS:

It’s with a heavy heart that I inform you of the cancellation of Simon Phillips’ current U.S. tour, including his two Chicago shows @ Reggies this weekend.
Unfortunately, Simon’s home in Ventura County, California, burned to the ground last night as he was performing in New York City’s Iridium Jazz Club with his band Protocol 4. A fast-moving, wind-fueled wildfire has swept through Ventura burning 45,500 acres, destroying homes, and forcing 27,000 people to evacuate while firefighters attempt to contain it. As of 8am, the “Thomas Fire” has already covered 70 square miles.

Simon had already completed a successful tour of Europe (beginning October 26th and wrapping up on December 2nd) and had just kicked off the U.S. leg last night.

I believe a Go Fund Me Page for Simon is already in the works. I will definitely keep you posted.

In the meantime, please support Simon by sharing this post and purchasing his latest album, “Protocol 4,” on Amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/Protocol-4-Si.../…/B076F4LD3G/

“Protocol 4” features incredible instrumental fusion compositions written by Simon and performed by four top musicians all showcased by Simon’s impeccable production.

Yeah - here in Southern California, we're glued to the news as the fires burn out of control. There are lots of mandatory evacuations going on. Scary times.

Yes, the fires and smoke are terrible. My clothes smell like I've been in a camp fire.

Though, why would Simon need a Go Fund Me Page? He has insurance, and has made more money than most of us.

Go fund me isn't just for the needy. Rich folks want more money as well.

My thing is people must know the places where wild fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and such happen and yet they continue to live there. Interesting....

This is where my head goes as well.....

While I feel bad folks lose their property and material things, I roll my eyes and say "well that was predictable".......granted fire is a different animal than living on the ocean in hurricane zones but.....

I'm sure Simon will come out OK, losing items that can't be replaced etc. sucks.......but shouldn't we also be mourning the loss of what has to be some sweet drum gear as well here? (I know you were all thinking it)

Stay safe, Matt and others in Socal!

Man, up north a ways near SF and Napa, we just had a huge fire disaster! Got so bad around half the people you saw on the street had masks on like it was China or parts of India or something. Articles I read said air quality was actually worse some days than in those places!

I don't see any smoke from my work yet in Oakland, but I may since I hear you guys actually saw some of our smoke from the recent fires up here!

I sweated thru a week of hurricane anticipation and then no power for a week after, but can only wish the best for these people who are losing everything. Best of luck.

Yeah we’re good. Ventura County seems to have suffered the worst. But there were some winds at Disneyland! I’m surprised things didn’t start falling over it was blowing so hard.

Luckily today everything seems to have calmed a bit. Thankfully!

That's not entirely true. Two or three homes in Bel-air were destroyed by fire this morning. That's not some remote town in the wilderness. The winds have been crazy lately, and they carry embers for miles. Plus everything is very dry here from the ongoing drought, so things go up in flames if you sneeze.

Simon's home is within miles of valleys where there is a lot of fuel (trees etc.) but Ventura is not a place where fires are rampant or regular.

People also know where mudslides, tornadoes, floods, blizzards, and monsoons occur, but they have to live somewhere.

The thing is, Simon isn't asking for help.

I've read the same news story on multiple sites, and the go fund me part isn't there.

Someone inserted the line about gofundme along the way. It's very presumptuous to just assume one is needed

For the record, Simon's official page says NOTHING about any gofundme or needing help

Simon regrets to inform everyone that his current U.S. tour dates have been cancelled. Simon's home in Southern California was destroyed by fires that have been raging in Ventura County the past two days. He was NOT home and was not injured. Thanks to everyone for communicating their concerns. New dates will be posted when available.

Subject to? Every place is. More susceptible? Now that's the question.

Step outside and you are subject to be hit by a car. Stay on a sidewalk and you are less susceptible to be hit by said car.

Why live some place where if you sneeze flames erupt? California is one rattle away from floating off into the Pacific.

I understand what you are saying though.

Ya, I'm not understanding your hard stance on this. Sure, don't build your home meters from a flowing river, but people have been living in these 'dangerous places' for centuries.
There is a reason people emigrated to California along a fault, or to Naples at the foot of a volcano, or to ancient Greece where there is plate tectonics and plenty of earthquakes....etc There is a long history of commerce, life and civilization in many of these places that cannot just pick up and move. Seems pretty obvious.

I thought this stuff was a joke; still hope it is, but, do you also refuse to drive cars and go up or down stairs due to the far higher chance of death when compared to death by fire or "floating off into the pacific" fantasies?

Would you take into account that we have very few snow-related deaths? Perhaps you should live here in the winter and elsewhere in the summer to minimize your chances either freezing or getting cooked to death?

Unfortunately, California is already ruined from over-population because nothing stops people from moving here in droves.

Well, two places in CA are... The whole northern part is forrest and the eastern part is mostly empty desert. But yea, the LA and SF areas have too many people with too much money making things even more expensive and bringing in even more rich bitches.

Oh, it's way over-populated here in LA. I grew up here in Orange County, HB to be exact.
I would never even consider going to Mexico City. That's just insanity and proof that mankind will eventually fail. I've seen pictures of all the pollution in the Indian rivers with foam so high and people swimming in the filth. Heck, I won't even go into the Pacific Ocean anymore because of the pollution. You can catch Hepatitus A out there after a storm.

I Hope insurance will cover Simon's material losses.

It can happen to anyone so I don't get the sneering tone from some people above. People live near where they work and employment is available.

For a professional musician in the USA thats most likely LA, Nashville or New York.

Forest fires happen in many countries round the world, never mind individual house fires and floods. I've had to experience both and would gladly swap with some of those extremely lucky people above.

Stuff can be replaced, people can't so be thankful.

Cheers
Mick

Interesting site. It says that SF is nearly twice as expensive as LA!

I had a friend in SF about 10 years ago, who lived on Tennessee, not far from the stadium, in a one-bedroom loft.

Even though he was making crazy money as a web developer, I still couldn't see how anyone would want to spend $5,000 per month on that.

Absolutely shocking to hear. I don't live in the LA area but I am very lucky that Simon was out of house and didn't burn down. California has been no stranger to fires and I think this fire and the ones in Napa near where I am, are pretty awful.

Agreed. Seems a little strange to say "I do not know what insurance will cover" and ask for money just in case it doesn't. If insurance covers everything, will he give the money back?

439 buildings were destroyed and 85 have been damaged so far in this Ventura area fire. What makes him so special?

I was surprised too. $200,000 is a lot of money, and insurance is supposed to cover the market value of the house, so... did he not have music equipment insurance to cover his studio gear? Insurance should cover expenses for hotel, clothes, food, etc.
