As we approach the Christmas gift-giving season, here's an excellent choice for the drummer or rock fan in your life. David Phillips has created a unique coffee-table book called "A Drummer's Perspective" with 200 exclusive shots of some of the most famous drummers in the business including Ginger Baker, Neil Peart, Mitch Mitchell, Roger Taylor, Zak Starkey, Dave Grohl and more.
Each photo includes notes on where the photo was taken, anecdotes from the author and assorted backstage memorabilia. These are incredible in-concert photos from stadiums, clubs and festivals around the world over a five year period. Author David Phillips was head of European Artist Relations for Pearl Drums and has also handled Artist Relations for Drum Workshop. As a result, Phillips had a ringside seat at some of the best venues imaginable, resulting in the kind of close-up photos that you just can't get anywhere else.
So if you're looking for a unique book, check this out. It's available exclusively by ordering from music-images in the UK for £29.99 plus shipping.
