Latest news: The third (and final) edition of The Strawberry Bricks Guide to Progressive Rock is close! Written, fact-checked and proofread, I am in the process of finalizing this edition and readying it for print. For those that have purchased the first edition of the book, it is a considerable upgrade with over 200+ more records added to the timeline, fact-checked, edited, and a new prologue and epilogue. Early 2020 release!
