Ever since I was a kid, I have been a huge prog-rock guy. For some unknown reason, I was immediately drawn to bands like Rush, Genesis, and Pink Floyd. Of course, prog had no shortage of critics who lambasted it as pretentious, overblown, bombastic, and self-important.
The once-derided genre of music seems to be making a bit of comeback as of late. Perhaps everything old is new again. And, if you're a prog fan today, you don't have to go too far until you'll come across the immensely talented multi-instrumentalist Marco Minneman. He's played with master musicians Joe Satriani, Steven Wilson, Jordan Rudess, and many others.
I recently sat down with Marco to talk about his new album EEPS, among other subjects.
You can buy the album Amazon as well.
