Simon's certainly one of the most amazing drummer today, his recent collaboration with the Hiromi jazz trio project just show how musical, skilled and tasteful Simon is these days...

Wow, those Townsend gigs were a big band setup. Of course, Simon nailed it. I especially like his little 16th kick syncopation in the verse groove on "won't get fooled again". A standard rock vibe groove we all use, but it's so perfectly placed in that number.

Hi again guys

Here's the 2 links for today's post.


"New Blues" by Joe Satriani from the album The Extremist (1992), the one minute bridge starting at 02:10 is something...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEMc9FLfgLw

"Little Drummer Boy" from the album We Wish You A Metal Xmas And A Headbanging New Year (2008), being so near to christmas, I thought that this groove from Simon would be quite the perfect little "present" for you my DrummerFriends...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFmQK...el_video_title

Enjoy!

Hi fellow drummers

Another couple of "rarities" from our beloved drummer, with a little "bonus" clip in which Simon is discussing talent vs hard work.... interesting, and so true if you really want to get there....

Now the music...

"Looking For A Lady" by Trevor Rabin (Guitarist for the band Yes) from his solo album Wolf (1981), a very Van Halen-esque intro in this song, and as always, perfect groove from the man...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvy9vRYe3ag&feature=fvst

"Dragonball Z & Z2" a recording session for the video game, I don't know the date of this session, but judging by Simon's look and the drumkit, I'll say it's early 2000's, now that song rocks! Simon, Steve Lukather, Mike Porcaro and the Horns from Tower of Power (no less), I like Steve's comments at the end "Are we getting close?", I thought that was close enough!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mN3BELKFYU

... and the little bonus: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDRf7...eature=related

Enjoy!

Hello, Im back at it again...

Simon Phillips and Mo Foster (Bass) have played together on several projects, which includes the jazz/fusion trio RMS, Michael Shenker Group and Mo Foster's solo albums.

Here's a couple of songs that display their partnership on very different styles of music

"The Lights In Your Eyes" by Mo Foster from the album Bel Assis (1988) with a magnificient guitar part from the deeply missed Gary Moore...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a6XqfcHkFjI

"Feels Like A Good Thing" by the Michael Schenker Group from their first album (1980) it's hard to believe that it's the same rythm section as the song above... The funny thing is, MSG were doing their 30th anniversary tour last year, and it's Simon playing it...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jxQCqIGyWg



Now a little bonus for my friend Andy... (KIS)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ffurj...el_video_title

.... sorry Andy, it's not the full piece, but the quality is good, I liked the beard!!!

Enjoy!

This is really too much to take :) Loving these tracks. MSG when Simon was 20 :) Pure class from Mo Foster, then that oh so tasteful performance with Hiromi. All this on a day when we get the huge bonus of those blues club gig tracks too. Really = overload. Loving it!!

Enjoy this precious gem!

Hi guys

While these are not "rare" songs as such from the man, they come from Simon's first effort at a solo album, released in 1988, it's written and produced by Mr Phillips.

When Protocol's came out, I was really amazed with this CD. Not only by the drumming, which is outstanding, but the fact that he played all instruments on the album.

Here's the links for the first three songs of the album.

"Streetwise" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgYtJeFZ6Bg

"Red Rocks" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LGkXr...eature=related

"Protocol" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWThz...eature=related

Enjoy!

Hi again DrummerFriends

Simon had a long collaboration with multi-instrumentist and vocalist Mike Oldfield, Mr Phillips has played on four albums, Crises (1983), Discovery (1984), Islands (1987) and Heaven's Open (1991). He was the co-producer alongside Mike Oldfield on Crises and Discovery.

Here's a couple track from Mike Oldfield.

"Taurus 3" from Crises, a kind of latin rock groove with a nice toms pattern, very Phillips-esque.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0HoF3...eature=related

"Mr Shame" from Heaven's Open, Simon can really lay down a solid groove with tasty hi-hat work, superb.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWIfEDYgPAU

The third track today comes from Nik Kershaw's album Radio Musicola (1986)

"Violet to Blue", a magificient half time shuffle feel from Simon, on the second half of the track, he agrement the vibe of that song with tasteful fills, really inspiring.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTSSw...ySDQBo6ptFWzhC

Enjoy!

I hope you're feeling better Andy...

I'm glad you're enjoying yourself with Mr Phillips :-))

Sorry for the link, I created my YouTube account yesterday, to be able to upload some tracks of Simon (and other drummers in the future) it's better than mp3 I think, perhaps I did something wrong, I will check it up.

Cheers

No, nothing wrong from your side. That clip infringed some form of publication deal in the UK. It happens from time to time on Youtube. Keep doing what you're doing man, I'm loving it!!!!!

Hello guys

A few days ago, I talked about the collaboration between Simon and Mo foster (bass), and one of their project RMS with long time friend of Simon, guitarist Ray Russell (they played together on various projects since 1974 with the band Chopyn). Ray is also featured on both Simon's educational videos from the early 90's.

In the early 80's, Ray, Mo and Simon, hence the name RMS, decided to put a jazz/rock/fusion band together with their own compositions.

The album Centennial Park (1982) was recorded live in a studio in one day, with a horns section which brings together the spontaneity and excitement of a live performance. The music itself is a unique blend of modern composition, improvisations and enthusiasm.

I've selected 4 songs from this album.

"Broadway Rundown" The opening track from the album...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6z4MP_HSz4

"Truck" A nice ending from Simon with the horns section...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ld3DkmVfh3A

"Hoover The Duvet" A jazz piece as crazy as the title suggest...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGGESKhiInA

"First Love" A beautiful piece with synth guitar and fretless bass...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yFStxMzjEXI

Enjoy!

Hi guys

Following on from my last post, long time friend Ray Russell also played on the third solo album of Simon Phillips, Symbiosis (1995), Russell & Phillips have co-wroted several songs on the album.

"Starfish Spaghetti" one of my favourite on the album written by Ray Russell. Solid groove by Simon and bandmate Mike Porcaro (bass) from Toto.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZR5b8NjsEM



The 2 other links are from another friend from Mr phillips, Jack Bruce from the astonishing live album, Cities Of The Heart (1993).

"Born Under A Bad Sign" a classic song beautifully interpreted here...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KHv6s4TG6Bc

"Sunshine of Your Love" this version is unique, as it feature a drum duet between Simon and the original drummer of the song, Mr Ginger Baker... magic moments...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N8hVx1KT-sQ

Enjoy!

Hi DrummerFriends

The saga continue with more tracks from the man...

"Throwaway" by Mick Jagger from the album Primitive Cool (1987), rock groove by Simon, lead guitar by Jeff Beck...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeWjjlwNwNg

"Toss The Feathers" by The Corrs from the album Forgiven, Not Forgotten (1995), a bit of celtic vibes in the groove....

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpM-e06b2Bc

"Don't Step In It" from Pete York's Super Drumming album (1987), Pete York has made several videos and CD's bringing all the big names in drumming, this track is from the first video/CD of his saga of drumming. At the begining of the band ostinato, Simon's soloing just with the bass drums, amazing stuff...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0bpd0A8ftU

Hi again fellows drummers

Here's a couple tracks that's a 'bit" rare from Mr Phillips...

"I Have The Touch" by Peter Gabriel from the album Shakin The Tree, Sixteen Greatest Hits, this song was originally released on PG's fourth album (1982), this version is a 1983 remix with a new drum track, additional keyboard and voice.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REmp8mjtvPE

"Déjà Je Suis Loin" by Michel Berger from the album Beaurivage (1981), Simon leaving the UK to go acroos the channel to France to record several albums with Michel Berger (R.I.P.), an inspiring groove, I love the chorus pattern...

Wow! You've been at it again! Great selection of SP stuff. Sorry I missed this thread over the last few days, but I've been super busy. Anyhow, left comments on the YT clips. Symbiosis still does it big time for me :)

Hello again Simon's friends,

Do you like the Rolling Stones? if so, there's a concert of Mick Jagger in Tokyo in 1988, featuring Simon Phillips, guitar legend Joe Satriani and so sexy singer Tina Turner doing a few stones numbers

"Honky Tonk Women" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaIgruM9Big

"Harlem Shuffle" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YqSVvLm2Md4

"Miss You" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PGvZK..._order&list=UL

"Brown Sugar" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDQyn...eature=related

"Jumping Jack Flash" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GujOSr9y044

Enjoy!

I can't believe just how good that gig is! Simon has really grown into the trio role since recording "Voice". He's now so comfortable with it, he's almost toying with the format. Such a pleasure to see. Wonderful! I'd like a high quality DVD of this.

Cheers Abe :) Henri posted the same clip in his "musicality" thread. Always little gems from Simon. Seriously though, try to listen to the Hiromi gig footage Henri posted below. It's a full gig, so you get the whole vibe in context. I love it - but will never get to play anything like that :( I need a left hand (or right in your case) that actually works ;)

I'm looking forward to getting his new CD, but it's not available online anywhere. I think he's only selling it at shows.

Still blows me away - every friggin' time. Stumbled across this short clip today. The power, the dynamic control, the grace, & the fun. I rarely like solo's (even Simon's), but this does it for me :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TYdq...99310E1BE8C4B3

Whoa! He's changed his tom arrangement (two floating toms above a single floor tom). I don't know that he's done that since the 80s, except for the extra floor tom that he sometimes adds behind his two main ones.

And yes, that solo is amazing. Simon's touch is second-to-none.
