About Musician Phil See


Phil See has been a musician most of his 55 years. Self‐taught on the drums, piano and guitar, he performed with rock bands throughout the Pacific Northwest from 1977 to 1989 and is still actively recording solo projects. In October 2002, after experiencing numbness on his left side, Phil was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Although he suffered debilitating weakness, he was determined to play the music he loved. With reconditioning and perseverance, he is a stronger musician now than before his diagnosis. Phil hopes the “Get Back Your Music” sessions will inspire other neurologically challenged musicians to reconnect with their passion.
