Chris Squire RIP

A few days ago we’re reached by the sad news that Chris Squire had passed away. It’s hard to fathom. One of my very first progressive rock records I ever bought was ”Close to the edge”, if it wasn’t the very first. One thing is for sure and that’s that Yes introduced a whole new world of music to me that I didn’t know existed. Changed me. Changed the way I think about music. Changed how I write music. Changed my record collection. My preferences. Chris Squire certainly had a great part in that. And I’m just one Yes fan in a legion of millions. Thank you Chris from us in Opeth. Condolences to his family and bandmates.

70's UK prog rockers Cressida reunion show

Cressida, UK prog legends that put out 2 records through the Vertigo imprint in 1970 and 1971 are celebrating a reunion with a show at the Underworld in Camden, London, UK on December 2nd. The band has been hugely influential for Mikael Akerfeldt since the early 90's. "I'm pretty bummed out about not being able to see them myself as I'm probably on a plane somewhere, but I'm hoping I will get more chances. I advice everyone reading this to go and check them out. Super swinging Hammond based prog rock that sounds nothing like anything I've ever heard" - Mikael
