I knew he had a rough patch with “King Arthur,” but sleeping on park benches? 

On a cold winter night in 1980, a London bobby was walking his beat in Kensington Gardens when he spotted a man sleeping on a park bench. The bobby recognized him immediately from his long, straight golden hair. “Mr. Wakeman,” the officer said, trying to rouse the man. “Rick—get home to your missus. You’re pissed.”

Yes were very hard on keyboardists!  Pat Moraz also had a horrible time, financially, from what I’ve read.

RIP Ulyana Gor. 


The composer and keyboard player of Pandora Snail passed away May 23 – presumably from a heart attack. Very sad news.

Info about the only studio full-length album is here:

I was just listening to that album a few days ago.

This is sad to hear.  She was a true talent.

And if you can’t be with the prog you love, honey, love the prog you’re with.

Hi,

    Logos is proud to write that the new LogoS album is ready. 

It will be published soon by Andromeda Relix. Its title is “Sadako e le mille gru di carta” (Sadako and the thousand paper cranes).

According to an ancient Japanese legend, those who fold a thousand paper cranes with the technique of origami will see every wishes fulfilled…

Here is the cover: the new album is coming soon.

New single by Russian avant/sympho-prog-band Roz Vitalis

The Man Whose Wings Were Cut Off” is the newest Roz Vitalis opus. Work on this track began on the last day of the spring of 2019, and ended already at the beginning of the “self-isolation regime”. Today it is one of the most sophisticated and multi-layered compositions of the group.
The Man Whose Wings Were Cut Off” is the group’s first experience using ethnic instruments such as doira and rubab, rarely used in rock music. They were played by a musician from Hamburg, Serghei Liubcenco. Another guest was Igor Luniov on ukulele, previously once already collaborated with Roz Vitalis.
The cover of the single is designed by the wonderful artist Vyacheslav Potapov. This is the first experience of Roz Vitalis collaborating with him, although he designed booklets for the albums of several prog rock groups, including all releases of the side project of the Roz Vitalis main composer – Rozmainsky & Mikhaylov Project.  

Credits

Leonid Perevalov – bass clarinet, recording
Ivan Rozmainsky – conception, keyboards, recording
Vladimir Semenov-Tyan-Shansky – guitar intro, guitar solo
Evgeny Trefilov – drums, recording, mixing, mastering

with thanks to

Serghei Liubcenco – doira, rubab, guitars, recording
Igor Luniov – ukulele
Vyacheslav Potapov – artwork

Inspired by Alexandra Neronova’s vers libre

It seems to me more like a possibility rather than a definitive confirmation.

In any case, I hope it becomes a reality.

Hi,

Honestly, I think I would rather see a new Dream Theater, more focused on music than a screaming non stop guitar, than another LTE … I kinda think, and I have the two CD’s that it is not exactly a great set of music, but it does allow the players to live a bit longer than otherwise. My thoughts were in the first two albums that papa Bear did not have enough time to develop his own playing … 

Weird of weirdnesses … hearing JR do classical stuff that never once showed on DT! His keyboard work with DT, is … background … for the most part, and not a major part of the development of the work … kinda suggests that he is “added’ later and not a part of the valuable and important composition process, just like JL.

… none of the hits, none of the time … now try finding your own mirror/art! www.pedrosena.com

Sorry Pedro, I think DT is done if what you are wanting is Awake, I&W or heck even BC&SL. Their formula is now long thrashy songs with massive individual wonkery, all ingredients that equal a boring meal. JR is part of the writing team, he and JP are basically it musically, some additions by Myung when they allow him to contribute. So you have a lead guitarist and keyboard player writing almost everything and no contribution from the rhythm section, that’s why they have no melody anymore. Hoping that Portnoy and I assume Tony Levin, will inject some much needed writing help to JR and JP. 

What will be bad is if Portnoy asks one of his metal bass player buddys to join if Levin cannot.

Hi,

Not at all … I enjoyed listening to LTE but it was not that exciting to me … just nice stuff. Nowadays the whole group around Stickmen are doing some of that stuff way better, and I think they work on their material to be tight and clean … I kinda felt that LTE did not work together enough to make it better.

As for DT, I had not even heard all their early stuff … and I did not mind the guitar w**king, but I do think that it needed to be better designed than just a non-stop solo. 

BTW, I much prefer the “thrashy long songs” rather than the 3 and 4 minute variety that sound cool for 1 minute and then it’s all gone … although my thoughts are that it hurts when you are not using the other folks more, to augment your guitar, rather than keeping them in the background. And I think DT would be better if John Myung was better integrated than he has been, but when a bass is stuck only assisting a guitar, there is no room for the bass to augment the keyboard or the drummer! Or singer for that matter!

Hi! I just released a new Space Rock song I was working on since last Halloween. It was originally an Electronic improvisation but built a song over it. I was mainly inspired by Zombi/Gary Numan/King Crimson/Eloy among others.

I’d appreciate your feedback so please let me know what you think Thumbs Up

Hi all;

Finally, I got a new album coming out this summer plus a new single coming out today. Here’s a press release…

 

So Far From Home is the first single off the forthcoming Golden Robot Records release The Sound of Dreams, a star-studded landmark recording from progressive rock keyboardist/composer David Minasian.

The song features Grammy Award winning guest artist PJ Olsson, best known as lead vocalist of The Alan Parsons Live Project. Olsson’s trademark vocal harmonies highlight this powerfully haunting and beautiful track.

The Sound of Dreams album, scheduled for release later this year, also features guest appearances from a number of legendary rock icons including vocalist/guitarist Justin Hayward of The Moody Blues, guitarist Steve Hackett of Genesis, vocalist Annie Haslam of Renaissance, bassist Billy Sherwood of Yes, and drummer Geof O’Keefe of Pentagram.

Only took 10 years, lol.

My best;

David Minasian
