From The Riser: A Drummer’s Perspective II is a follow up to the critically acclaimed A Drummer’s Perspective. The photographic collection captures the energy, emotion and elegance of some of the world’s best, playing with some of the world’s greatest bands.
The book features two hundred and seventy previously unseen photographs taken exclusively by the author. It includes over one hundred and thirty legendary drummers from a wide range of genres including Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Sheila E (Prince), Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe), Derrick Wright (Adele), Dame Evelyn Glennie, Jack DeJohnette (Miles Davies), Travis Barker (Blink-182), Vijay Mistry (Kaiser Chiefs), Venzella Joy Williams (Beyoncé), Jonathan Moffett (Michael Jackson), Roger Taylor (Queen), Lars Ulrich (Metallica) and Stewart Copeland (The Police).
Included alongside the many striking images is a record of Phillips’ cherished collection of backstage passes, set lists and other memorabilia. Rush’s Neil Peart, who penned the foreword for the book said: “Not many photographers have captured that performance art as well as David. One accomplishment is simply collecting photographs, but the greater gift is delivering such iconic images.”
