Watch: Rick Wakeman, Prog God 2012 – The Acceptance Speech!
Here’s Rick Wakeman‘s quite hilarious acceptance speech from last years Progressive Music Awards. Rick was honoured with the prestigious Prog God Award, which was presented to him by John Wetton of Asia.
With his customary tongue-in-cheek humour Rick had everyone rolling in the aisles with his tale of having to free fellow prog keyboard legend Keith Emerson from a locked toilet cubicle prior to the Awards dinner.
Voting for this year’s awards closes next Wednesday, so if you haven’t voted yet, head off here and register your votes now. We’ve had almost three times as many votes as last year and it really is neck and neck in some categories.
The 2013 Prog God will be unveiled at the Progressive Music Awards at Kew Gardens on September 3.
