Pendragon

Hi Nick. Congrats on “Love Over Fear”. It’s the “Album of the Month” on Grande Rock!
 
N: Thank you!
 
 
It’s been almost 6 years since “Men Who Climb Mountains”. What happened in the meantime and why did it take you so long to come up with a new studio album?
 

Pendragon - Love Over Fear

In 2018 Pendragon had their 40th year anniversary. Yeah, I know that the number 40 might seem too big but this band has been around since 1978 and has been true to their prog rock values all these years. Then again it’s been almost 6 years since their last studio album “Men Who Climb Mountains”, so the prog fans might have been wondering what’s been going on.

Captain Cheesebeard share new single “Deadwood”

Happily emerging many moons ago as a Frank Zappa tribute project, the Brussels-based decet (that’s Ten musicians, and yes, we checked), Captain Cheesebeard, have since developed into a unique fusion ensemble. After years of respectfully interpreting Zappa and his music, bandleader, Johan De Coninck decided that the time had come for the band to explore their own virtuosity and begin writing original compositions.
 

Paul Gilbert presents new video for “A Herd of Turtles”

Paul Gilbert has released a new music video for “A Herd of Turtles”.

Watch the video below.

Paul says: “How do you know when you’ve gained your producer’s trust?

You ask him this question:
"Hey John, can you set up a vocal mic? I want to recite a poem about turtles in a Ringo Starr accent, and then launch into a ferocious groove with the band, and then back to the Ringo part, and then back to the ferocious part a few more times. We’ll cut it all live too".
