on drums will be Tony "Greasy Wop" Fernandez who has been pretty much ever present since 1975.
Rick's first choice guitarist Dave Colquhoun has been in the band for 8 years and Lee Pomeroy, considered by many to be the finest prog rock bass player for decades has been with the band for 12 years.
As regards the music.......very much the classic stuff done big with more than a few surprises thrown in for good measure
Guaranteed will be pieces froim the Six Wives of Henry VIII , Journey to the Centre of the Earth and King Arthur.
This will be the EXCLUSIVE performance in the UK in 2012 and the bands first since the Cropredy Festival three years ago, for which they received truly sensational reviews.
