PINK FLOYD - The farm of animals

It's Pink Floyd's fault. The story of the extent to which the escalating material battles of prog and art rock in the mid-seventies, accompanied by overestimation of one's own self and megalomania, helped to cause punk, has been told a hundred times. It is true that the adolescents of those years who were affected by a recession lost touch with their idols, especially in England. But this movement was not a one-way street.

A.R. & MACHINES - The incredible journey in a crazy machine

He calls himself an old bag. Achim Reichel, 73, looks back to the seventies, not without pride, but with the awareness of having been lucky too. Growing up in St. Pauli, a stone's throw from the neighbourhood, the hamburger talks like his beak has grown. That is amusing and makes him sympathetic, this guy without airs and graces, but with a lot of charisma. In his answers he sometimes digresses, but that doesn't matter, because the man has something to tell. Anything but a sailor's yarn.

YES featuring ARW - division, part 2

The story of Yes is a story full of surprises and imponderables. This includes the separation into two autonomous fractions. First happened in 1989, when Jon Anderson moved away from "Yes-West" (the pop-oriented group led by Chris Squire and Trevor Rabin) to revive Yes's classic seventies sound with ABWH (Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, Howe). When the band - long again in a singular incarnation - continued in 2008 with a new singer due to health problems of Anderson, the former members Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman announced ARW in 2010.

VIBRAVOID - Today never knows

Probably no other musician in Germany holds the flag of the psychedelic higher than Christian "Doktor" Koch, the thought leader of the band Vibravoid founded in the late eighties. In music and lifestyle he orients himself on the forefathers of the movement and acts as an ambassador of an idea that is no longer present in the general public. The man from Düsseldorf himself did not experience the time and its vibrations, and yet he internalized them.

VANILLA FUDGE - Punctual because too early

She was barely over three years together. Between 1967 and 1970 she recorded five albums. The Vanilla Fudge formation has written music history with these and since then has been repeatedly apostrophized as the "best cover band of all time". Presumably the New York Quartet is the same, because there is no other act that has forged such heavy-blooded versions from sometimes light-footed originals by such different artists as the Supremes, Zombies, Beatles or Sonny & Cher. A phenomenon! In 1999 the reunion took place, which has lasted until today.

CHRIS HILLMAN - America first

If you look at the portrait photo of Chris Hillman in the inner cover of his new album, you can see a handsome man resting in himself with thick white-grey hair and walrus schnauzer. The beloved guitar is enthroned on his lap. The country rock legend, who turns seventy-three years old on the fourth of December, uses the record to take stock of her exciting musical career, which began in the early sixties. On "Bidin' My Time" long-term buddies Hillmans meet David Crosby, Roger McGuinn and the Heartbreakers. Their boss Tom Petty, who died in October, produced the record.

WOBBLER - All the time of the world

It was supposed to be a short, whimsical US trip. A few gigs where Wobbler wanted to present their new album "From Silence To Somewhere". But it came differently. Because they allegedly had false visas, the Norwegians were arrested. No entry into the United States, but twenty hours in a cell. Back home, singer Andreas Wettergreen Strømman Prestmo found his humour again in conversation with eclipsed: "Playing prog is a hard job!
