Reviews for the Third Edition

Reviews for the third edition of The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive rock (will be updated).

"Each of the over 500 entries is lovingly annotated with insightful breakdowns of each subject, which resulted in me reacquainting myself with many albums I hadn't thought about in years. Whether you are the novice getting your cape dirty for the first time, or a seasoned veteran who enjoys a fresh perspective, this is your mountain to climb." - Eric Reidelberger, Ugly Things Magazine

Franco Battiato, RIP

Sad news. Franco Battiato, one of the world's greatest musical artists. His catalog is a veritable sound track through the last five decades, from beat to prog to avant to pop icon to world to classical. Immense and unparalleled talent. RIP, Maestro.

Legendary rock band Golden Earring stops after 60 years on ALS diagnosis | NL Times

Some pretty sad news here. Let's hear it for Golden Earring, one of the longest standing rock bands out there. You couldn't have lived through the 70s or 80s without loving their hits, but there's a lot more to the band, including some fantastic albums in the 60s and 70s. Take care dear George Kooymans.
