    Default Simon Phillips house destroyed in fire

    I just was lucky enough to see Simon Phillips last night at the Iridium in NYC. Directly following the show he had learned that his house was destroyed in the fires in California. He has to cancel the remaining dates of his tour. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

    Right here at Christmas, too. I feel terrible for anyone who has to go through anything like this.

    Growing up here all my life, I know all too well the danger and destruction of fires. There's a lot of multi-million dollar houses spread all over here and we really don't have seasons like most of you do back there. Our Winters are usually sunny and dry and high winds. The Rye fire started (one of many) just 20 mi. South from where I live and luckily the wind was blowing in opposite direction. . . .not so luckily for others. That's the price you pay when you live in certain areas around So. California. My thoughts and prayers are for all those people affected.

    Sad news.
    I love to watch Phillips play with that great touch and the open-handed creativity he has.
    He can mentally dial up great licks on demand at a very fast pace; on top of that, he enjoys it.
    I have a DVD of him playing in Europe with TOTO...................awesome drummer.

    I hate hearing (or reading) about things like this. Simon Phillips is a really nice guy and I can't imagine what seeing your house burnt to the ground is like.

    At the same time, didn't people that live in those areas where they have droughts and fires almost every year, not want to have firebreaks because it would ruin the esthetics of the area. It seems that they would rather run the risk of fires every year.

    Oh man...so sad to read about this tragedy again after the Napa, Santa Rosa fires in Northern CA a few months ago. My thoughts go out to Simon's family and thousands of others who have lost everything!

    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.
