Rick Wakeman, Piano Solo in a Yes Concert (dinamita muzicală)

Share

Rick Wakeman este unul dintre cei mai cunoscuti dintre muzicienii de progresiv din lume si este considerat un pionier al folosirii keyboards in muzica rock.

A fost, de asemenea, extrem de prolific: in plus, fata de opera sa ca membru al marii formatii FolkRock The Strawbs, a trupei Yes (PostPsychedelicHardRock, cum o caracterizeaza ProgArchives), precum si trupa nenumita Yes, dar formata exact din membrii acesteia, Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman si Howe (ABWH), a avut un numar imens de alte inregistrari, incluzand aici lucrari scrise cu David Bowie, Elton John, Black Sabbath, Al Stewart si legendarul Lou Reed.

A lansat mai multe albume solo decat oricine altcineva, in acest gen de muzica, in afara de excentricul Frank Zappa. Exista o lista cu 100 de titluri, inclusiv best-of-uri, un CD-EP, precum si alte sase albume pe care Rick le-a lansat in colaborare cu fiul sau, Adam (supranumite Wakeman with Wakeman – WwW).

A ramas de asemenea asociat cu brandul YES si in anii ’90. Dam mai jos o lista de albume, evident incompleta.
