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

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.

Flaming Youth with Phil Collins, live 1970

Here's a gem I've not seen before. Phil Collins drumming and singing with Flaming Youth, his pre-Genesis psychedelic rock group, with keyboardist Brian Chatton and guitarist Ronnie Caryl. Thank you WDR for these amazing historical documents!

Ken Hensley, RIP

More sad news from former Uriah Heep members. Ken Hensley passed away yesterday at age 75. Key songwriter for Uriah Heep's first decade, Ken's route were in Bournemouth, and he was a member of The Gods, whose ranks included Mick Taylor, Greg Lake and John Glascock, and of course, the late Lee Kerslake, who eventually joined Ken in Uriah Heep. My condolences to Ken's family and close friends. He had the magic gift of music! Long may his memory serve...

Romantic Warriors IV: Krautrock 2

The 2nd film of the Krautrock Trilogy explores eminent Krautrock bands from the South of Germany. Highly recommended, please help Jose and Adele get this second installment out!

Gordon Haskell, RIP

Gordon Haskell, perhaps best known in Prog circles as the vocalist on King Crimson's Lizard album, passed away on October 18th. His second solo album, 1971's It Is and It Isn't, opened a career that would offer him little reward until his substantial hit "How Wonderful You Are" in 2001. RIP, my condolences to his friends and family.
