David Phillips Releases "From The Riser: A Drummer’s Perspective II"

David Phillips is proud to launch his latest book, "From The Riser: A Drummer’s Perspective II," a photographic celebration of drummers and percussionists. The book features two hundred and seventy previously unseen photographs taken exclusively by the author.

It includes over one hundred and thirty legendary drummers including Lars Ulrich (Metallica), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Joey Kramer (Aerosmith), Jay Weinberg (Slipknot), Travis Barker (Blink-182), Tommy Lee (Mötley Crüe), Dan Flint (You Me at Six), Moose (Bullet For My Valentine), Cyrus Bolooki (New Found Glory), Mike Mangini (Dream Theater), Chris CC Coma (Black Veil Brides), Brad Wilk (Rage Against The Machine), Andy Hurley (Fall Out Boy), Brooks Wackerman (Avenged Sevenfold), Chris Slade (ACDC), Jon Theodore (QOSA), Mikkey Dee (Motörhead), Ray Luzier (Korn), Scott Travis (Judas Priest), Brent Fitz (Slash) and more.

Included alongside the many striking images is a record of Phillips’ cherished collection of backstage passes, set lists and other memorabilia. You can grab your own copy at this location.

Rush’s Neil Peart, who penned the foreword for the book, says "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."

John Fred Young (Black Stone Cherry) sums it up by saying "what Dave does …. he gets in there and he goes where only brave men go … in the fury of techs running crazy on stage, drum sticks flying everywhere……. It’s a dangerous world up there on stage!"
