I bought a copy and it is a really cool book for any drummer! --Kubla Ken
‘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. The foreword is written by the drumming legend Neil Peart of Rush.
This project has been five years in the making and features around hundred twenty 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. 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 checkout backstage. The behind the scenes photos will give you an Access All Areas Pass to a side of the live music industry few people have seen.
Following on from ‘A Drummer’s Perspective’, David Phillips’ first book, ‘From The Riser’ features more drummers, more pages and even better pictures. The powerful images and text aims to give a fascinating insight to the drummers, their playing and their world.
