Re: Tony Franklin

He's featured on just about every Derek Sherinian solo album. Quite a few of those out there already!

Re: Awesome free compilation: The New Generation of Prog

In just four days, "The New Generation of Prog" became the most successful Progstravanza release yet. Thanks for your interest in all these young bands! :) Unfortunately, all this demand leads to problems with the Prog Sphere server. The site was down just a while ago. It now seems to be working aga...

Awesome free compilation: The New Generation of Prog

Hi there, when you're staging a prog festival for modern and somewhat obscure prog bands, you try to think of ways to make those bands more popular to maximize your audience.

Re: Generation Prog Festival 2011, Nürnberg, September 23+24

Good evening, last morning we got the news that despite all agreements, To-Mera would not be making the trip to Nuremberg after all. The reasons for that are “complex and no fault of your own,” says the band in its cancellation mail – in any case they’re nothing that they didn’t already know three m...

Re: New Dream Theater Single --

Superficially it sounds very typical, but I feel it has more depth than their recent material compositionally, so I'm really looking forward to the album.

Re: Frank Zappa and mothers documentary

on drumchannel.com there is a video called "the drummers of frank Zappa" with bozzio, wackerman, Ruth underwood, chester Taylor, and Ralph Humphrey. It's a round table discussion with great interviews and storys. Yeah, that's a very cool video, highly recommended even if you're not familiar with Za...
