Happy Birthday, Simon Phillips!

Happy Birthday, Simon Phillips!

Let us throw some names at you: Judas Priest, Tears for Fears, 10cc, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Frank Zappa, Peter Gabriel, and Toto – are just SOME of the names Simon Phillips has worked with over his illustrious career. Simon Phillips is what many consider a technician when it comes to Rock, Jazz or Fusion styles of drumming, so it’s no wonder he’s in the Modern Drummer magazine Hall of Fame. Here are some of our favourite Simon Phillips performances over the years!

Simon plays Tama drums and snares, Zildjian Cymbals, Remo Drum heads and ProMark drum sticks

Simon showcases here the difference between simply being a drummer, and a bandleader. Simon is most definitely a bandleader – he conducts the band perfectly all while playing some of the most musical drum parts like it’s nothing. A true master!

Probably as close as you can get to watching a master at work without literally sitting on his knee. The music might not be to everyone’s taste, but you can’t deny just how effortless Simon makes all this look, indicated by the classic Simon Smile…

There’s nothing better than watching an iconic drummer perform an iconic song. It’s the same feeling watching Steve Smith play Don’t Stop Believin’…

Hope you have a great day, Simon! Which performance from Simon over the years is your favourite?
