Re: A very intense drumsolo by Simon Phillips ( Video inside )

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!

yeah, I mailed Bernhard about it, I asked if he wanted some clips so he could put them out but he never answered.

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 )
