Simon Phillips Interview: One of my favorites! Simon opens up about his London session career (which started at age 16!), what he learned, how it shaped his career as a musician & as a drummer… losing his home in the California fires… working with Mike Oldfield, Bob Clearmountain, John Paul Jones, Jeff Beck, Tony Hymas, Roger Glover, Gary Moore, David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Bob Dylan, Jack Bruce, The Who, Chrissy Hynde… dealing with some personal dark times, moving here from England, being an optimist, Tony Roma’s, bangers & mash, and LOADS more VERY exciting things. What a guy!
