Gary Husband says in an online interview with John Flowers at www.drumplayer.net: [...] I'm also talking with Simon Phillips about a possible recording of a piece for two drummers [...]" It is not known what the status is of this inititiative. Gary Husband's Norwegian intermediate Sturla Nøstvik confirms us : "It's correct that Gary Husband has written a duet for himself and Simon. I have talked to Mr.Husband myself about that (since I have gotten to know him ).
