Back in 2010, author and photographer David Phillips published a coffee table book titled A Drummer's Perspective: A Photographic Insight into the World of Drummers. The book contained a stunning collection of live action photos celebrating the world of drumming.
Now, three years in the making, David is prepared to follow up his first book with From The Riser, A Drummer's Perspective II which will not only feature Neil Peart on the cover, but also includes a foreward written by Neil himself.‘From the Riser: A Drummer’s Perspective II’ is a stunning collection of over two hundred live action drumming photos brought together in a large format coffee table book. Plus the foreword is written by the drumming legend Neil Peart of Rush.David has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help make this book a reality.
This project has been three years in the making and features more than a hundred drumming legends. The book aims to celebrate the world of drumming by taking you behind the scenes and showing you drummers doing what they do best. These images capture the raw emotion and sheer excitement of playing live: you’ll be able to see the view from behind the kit on stage in front of tens of thousands of people, get up close to the action at sound checks and see exceptional shots of some of the most amazing rock concerts and festivals.
