    In The Room With Reitzas #1

    7:54

    Welcome to the first installment of In The Room With Reitzas
    Over the years I have collected dozens and dozens of videos of special moments throughout my career as an engineer and mixer. About once a week (maybe more, maybe less), I'll be uploading these moments for everyone to enjoy.
    I thought I'd start off with a session I did with Producer David Foster at The Record Plant.
    We did the 1st U.S. record for the Irish family group The Corrs and had awesome drummer Simon Phillips add his magic to 2 songs.

    Toto were formed in LA in the late 70’s by a group of friends who were all much in demand session musicians. They went on to epitomise the classic American pop/rock sound of the 80’s and 90’s with hit albums and singles including Hold The Line, Africa, I’ll Be Over You and the multi-Grammy winning worldwide hit Rosanna. This concert was recorded at Le Zenith in Paris in March 2007 in front of a wildly enthusiastic sell-out crowd. It captures the band rocking at their hardest and most powerful and giving a new life to all their best loved tracks.

    Simon Phillips - Drum solo

    7:00

    Simon Phillips (born 6 February 1957 in London) is a prolific English jazz, pop and rock drummer.
    He got early prominence as the drummer on the acclaimed 1976 LP 801 Live with Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno.[2] He went on to play with a wide array of musicians including Big Jim Sullivan, The Who, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Big Country, Toto, Los Lobotomys, Jeff Beck, Judas Priest, Michael Schenker, Jack Bruce, Brian Eno, Duncan Browne, Toyah, Mike Oldfield, Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin, Gary Moore, 10cc, Mick Jagger, Ph.D., Mike Rutherford, Phil Manzanera, John Wetton, flamenco guitarist Juan Martin, Asia, Stanley Clarke, Derek Sherinian, Nik Kershaw, Gordon Giltrap and Jordan Rudess.


    He was the drummer for The Who in their 1989 American reunion tour, and appeared on solo recordings by band members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. He has also worked with heavy metal act Judas Priest on Sin After Sin (1977) and Michael Schenker's debut album The Michael Schenker Group.

    Phillips has played on, co-produced, and mixed four Derek Sherinian solo records - Inertia (2001), Black Utopia (2003), Mythology (2004) and Blood of the Snake (2006). He also co-produced and mixed two albums by Mike Oldfield. Phillips also appeared with Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood and others in the video for the 1983 A.R.M.S. concert benefit for Ronnie Lane. In the early 1980s, Phillips formed part of RMS with fellow session musicians, Mo Foster and Ray Russell.

    Phillips began to play professionally at the age of twelve in his father's Dixieland band for four years. He was then offered the chance to play in the musical Jesus Christ Superstar. He quickly became a sought-after session player and in 1992, he released two instructional videos displaying some of his best work.

    He has released four studio albums of varying styles.

    In 2006, Phillips released a DVD with his jazz band, Vantage Point, called Resolution with writer and pianist Jeff Babko, trumpeter Walt Fowler, saxophonist Brandon Fields and bassist Alphonso Johnson.

    Simon Phillips interview - Protocol / Toto / Drums /

    22:11

    May 18, 2016 I've had this exclusive interview with one of the best drummers; Simon Phillips in club Spirit of 66 in Vervier (Belgium) during the Protocol European Tour 2016.

    We've had a nice chat about Protocol, Toto, Tama, drums of course! And lot more.

    Simon Phillips (born 6 February 1957) is an English jazz, pop and rock drummer and producer, best known for his 22-year stint with Toto.
    He was inducted into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 2003.

    Phillips has performed and recorded with a wide array of musicians including Big Jim Sullivan, Pete Townshend, Big Country, Toto, Steve Lukather and Los Lobotomys, Jeff Beck, Whitesnake, Jack Bruce, David Gilmour, Frank Zappa, Brian Eno, Duncan Browne, Toyah, Mike Oldfield, Jon Anderson, Bonnie Tyler, Trevor Rabin, Gary Moore, 10cc, Mick Jagger, PhD, Joe Satriani, Russ Ballard, Mike Rutherford, Phil Manzanera, John Wetton, flamenco guitarist Juan Martin, Asia, Stanley Clarke, Jimmy Earl, Derek Sherinian, Nik Kershaw, Gordon Giltrap, Camel, Jordan Rudess and Tears For Fears.

    He was the drummer for The Who in their 1989 American reunion tour, and appeared on solo recordings by band members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend.

    Phillips has played on, co-produced, and mixed five Derek Sherinian solo records – Inertia (2001), Black Utopia (2003), Mythology (2004), Blood of the Snake (2006), and Oceana (2011). He also co-produced and mixed two albums by Mike Oldfield. Phillips also appeared with Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood and others in the video for the 1983 A.R.M.S. concert benefit for Ronnie Lane. In the early 1980s, Phillips formed part of RMS with fellow session musicians, Mo Foster and Ray Russell.

    He has released four studio albums of varying styles.

    In 2006, Phillips released a DVD with his jazz band, Vantage Point, called Resolution with writer and pianist Jeff Babko, Trumpeter Walt Fowler, saxophonist Brandon Fields and bassist Alphonso Johnson.

    In 2015 at The 14th Annual Independent Music Awards, Simon Phillips was the winner in the Jazz Instrumental Album category for Protocol II.

    TOTO
    In 1992, Phillips was asked to fill in for Jeff Porcaro after Porcaro died during rehearsals for the upcoming tour to promote Toto's Kingdom of Desire album. Steve Lukather stated that he would only go on tour so shortly after Porcaro died if Toto could get Phillips to play the tour, so he was the first and only drummer that the band contacted to replace Porcaro. After the 1992/93 tour Phillips was asked to join Toto as a permanent member.

    Nicknamed Si-Phi or Si by his bandmates in Toto, Phillips was noted to be the group's 'technical' guru; handling the engineering duties on both the 2002 Through the Looking Glass and 2006 Falling in Between albums. He also engineered the 1999 Livefields album, and the Live in Amsterdam DVD from 2003.

    After the decision (15 July 2008) to go their separate ways and begin new chapters in their lives, on 27 February 2010 former members of Toto announced on the band's website a reunion for a brief 2010 summer tour in Europe in honor of their ex-bassist Mike Porcaro who was living with ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). They scheduled more dates for a tour in 2011, and ended up with the DVD performance in Villafranca Di Verona. Phillips toured with Toto in 2012 and 2013. After the last attempts at releasing a new DVD were all shelved the band recorded another concert aimed to be released on DVD in Lodz, Poland.

    As of 26 January 2014, Phillips has departed from Toto to focus on his solo career. He was replaced by Keith Carlock and subsequently, Shannon Forrest, Toto's current drummer.

    RECENT PROJECTS
    In 2009, Phillips joined with keyboardist Philippe Saisse and bassist Pino Palladino in forming an instrumental jazz/funk rock trio: Phillips Saisse Palladino or PSP, who toured in Europe in 2009 through 2010, spotlighting the talents of each performer in the songs chosen for their set list. Phillips also performed on Joe Satriani's album Super Colossal, appearing on multiple tracks. Phillips appears in Alan Parsons' Art & Science of Sound Recording educational video series, as well as the program's single All Our Yesterdays. He played in the Michael Schenker Group album In the Midst of Beauty and took part to the band's 30th Anniversary world tour in 2010. Phillips is featured on Hiromi Uehara's 2011 album, Voice. He also toured with Hiromi and bassist Anthony Jackson as part of the Hiromi Trio Project.

    INFLUENCES
    Phillips cites Buddy Rich, Tony Williams, Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Ian Paice, Tommy Aldridge and Bernard Purdie as his main influences.

However when I was browsing youtube and I saw Simon Phillip's 'Creative' Drum Solo and heard this part, something felt goofy. When I put these two tracks together, they pretty much matched exactly. I am deeply impressed by Benn Jordan for reproducing those drums pretty much exactly!

    Stick control by Simon Phillips 1080p

    7:56

    For the first time on DVD, and remixed (by Simon himself!) in Dolby 5.1 surround, Simon Phillips: Complete includes Simon’s groundbreaking videos Simon Phillips and Simon Phillips Returns on one disc. This DVD combines brilliant trio performances with concise and informative instructional segments. Simon demonstrates the drum patterns played in each song, first slowly and then up to speed, and covers topics such as double bass drums, bass and snare drum tuning, hand/foot independence exercises, practice techniques, timekeeping, odd-meters, and playing with a click. In addition, he performs two incredible free form drum solos which incorporate the fiery technique and ambidexterity that he has become known for. Remixed in 5.1 surround sound by the artist himself, the DVD includes brand new footage of Simon in the studio, explaining the concepts behind 5.1 surround sound and his own mixing process.
