New Prog Mag On Sale!
The latest issue of Prog magazine, issue 26, goes on sale today. Featuring prog legends Chris Squire of Yes and Steve Hackett of Genesis on the cover, the pair discuss their eagerly awaited new album under the banner Squackett – well, it beats Shire for a name doesn’t it (just think about those potentially embarrassing typos, what with the letters R and T being next to each other on a keyboard!). Along with the new album, the pair also discuss GTR and the ill-fated XYZ project with Jimmy Page, and there’s commentary from Squackett keyboard player Roger King and past Squire collaborator Billy Sherwood.
