Part One of my Ken Hensley coverage is now available at Progwatch.com

Ken Hensley is a self-proclaimed survivor…a veteran of the mega rock star days of the 1970s, and a music business machine that would just as soon grind up, spit out, and replace band members, rather than stop the money stream long enough for them to get help for addictions or other problems. In a career going back more than 50 years, his compositions and versatile musicianship put Uriah Heep on the map and then sustained a solo career and various bands, collaborations, and projects up through today. I was lucky enough to catch up with Ken a few weeks ago and chat at length with him about his illustrious career and his most recent project, a solo anthology called Rare And Timeless, driven and curated by Ken himself, and done in conjunction with BMG and PledgeMusic. This week I am proud to present some of that interview and a “Heeping” helping of great Ken Hensley music! (Part Two will follow in a few weeks.)
