Packed with terrific colour images shot on the world’s biggest festivals and stadium gigs, this book conveys the excitement, energy and beauty of the drummers art…….each drummers personality comes across so powerfully that your ears are practically ringing from the moment you turn the first page.
Tim Slater, Playmusic Pick-up review, Feb 11
Phillips has done an excellent job of capturing the atmosphere of capturing the atmosphere of the gigs and the spirit and vibe of these diverse drummers.

This colorful volume weighs in at over 2 pounds is about a foot wide, 10 inches high, with its 157 pages adding up to a little over a half-an-inch thick. You definitely do not want to be hit in the head with this thing! ….for drummers I am almost willing to say that this book is a must-have. If you’re a notch or two beyond a drummer and are a no-holes-barred drum fanatic, I would say that you need this book in your collection.

Just to let you know that your fantastic book arrived for Christmas. My son Jack is absolutely thrilled with it and every day I find him looking at it and using it to look up facts about the drummers he is unfamiliar with. The photographs are stunning, and we both have our favourites. Once again, congratulations on your wonderful book

Dave what a book fella! Top dollar on this, what a wonderful piece of work.
Thank you so much for this, what a lovely book to have as a drummer….really mate well done!!
You have summed up the last 10/15 years of drumming for me in this.

Pretty much every music fan has sat and wondered what it must be like to look out from a stage at a packed crowd hanging on your every move. Well wonder no more as David Phillips’ newly released book ‘A Drummer's Perspective’ gives you the best view in the house.
As a drummer I found this book both interesting and inspiring but it’s something that all music fans will appreciate. In the book's sleeve notes Phillips says, ‘I want to put drummers in the spotlight and offer a photographic celebration of the world of drumming’, he has certainly done that and then some.

“For drummers everywhere, it’s pure unadulterated eye candy”

Shooting from above, below, beside and behind the drummer or the drummer’s kit, Phillips captured intense action and telling facial expressions. Drum junkies, get ready for some candy! Percussive Notes, Jul11
