Phill told “The old cliche is “well, at least it, will keep him quiet. Phill told in an interview “when I started playing seriously, the English beat things were just happening, the shadows and bands like that.

It was the very early 60s”, he recalled. “I remem­ber buying Please Please Me. I used to put the record player on very loud and set up my drums so I was facing the mirror, that way you don’t look at what you’re doing.

“Then when I was fourteen I went to a teacher to learn to read drum music. I figured when this rock-and-roll thing finished I would have to make a living playing in a dance band or in an orchestra pit.

So I learned to read drum music, but I found that my capacity for reading was not anywhere near as good as actually playing by instinct.”
