Well his touring band is certainly wonderful enough. He used to have a guy that looked like Moses playing base named Leland Sklar, and then Chester Thompson on drums, and while the others were certainly competent enough, they were not the quality of the others...
Lots of good song by him, although he isnt my current listening, I do have a lot of live shows of him

Just to clarify though, about him having his face on the albums:
I can truly say that Phil is the furthest thing from arrogant. If you've ever met him in person you'll find that he's really a down-to-earth kinda guy, and he likes to think of himself that way.
He adores his fans, that's for sure, but he doesn't let that inflate his ego. He really is a nice guy.
As for the musicians in his backup group, Leland Sklar was indeed the "moses" bassist you speak of. And we also have to mention the very talented Daryl Steurmor on guitar. (He also worked with Genesis).
Anyway, just wanted to put my two cents in in case anyone ever thought Phil had an inflated ego. He's very far from it and acts just like a regular guy.
