	Simon Phillips is a FANTASTIC drummer!  I've been playing drums going
on 20 years now myself (I was only 5 when I started.......yeah RIGHT :)
	ANYWAY, the band Toto are the extremely fortunate receipitants of Mr.
Phillips drum prowess today.  I've only seen Simon in one performance,
and that's Tho Who's final performance of the '89 reunion tour where
they do the entire Tommy show along with their greatests afterwards! 
That guy does a hell of a drum job on that video tape that I USED to
have before my ex-VCR had eaten it!!
