The Brit David Phillips returns with a second photobook that deals with drummers in their natural environment. ‘From The Riser’ is the follow-up to ’A Drummer’s Perspective’. With over 130 drummers from all genres imaginable this is a great way to have a look at the ‘office’ of these musicians that can be seen as the motor of the band. Phillips is able to shoot great photos that paint a lively picture. Therefore this book is pretty cool. The fact you can see that every drummer is different mainly comes across looking at the size of their kit. Something I personally find quite fascinating. One of the world’s best drummers, Rush’s Neil Peart, wrote the foreword to this book and he also is on the cover of this great book with his enormous drum-set.
