About Simon Phillips Protocol
Drummer Simon Phillips is undoubtedly one of the premier players of his instrument. Whether it be jazz, fusion or rock, his playing employs a trademark precision and intensity that is always rich in emotion. A professional musician since the age of twelve, Phillips’ credits include Mick Jagger, The Who, Peter Gabriel, Hiromi, Stanley Clarke and Al DiMeola, just to name a few, as well as being a full-time member of Toto. Simon kicked off his solo career in 1988 with the release of Protocol, which has continued to be the name of his solo group and the first in a series of sequentially titled albums, including Protocol 4, which will be released this fall. Protocol features Greg Howe on guitar, Ernest Tibbs on bass and Otmaro Ruiz on keyboards.
