Progressive Rock icons Yes are back with a brand new album “Heaven and Earth.” I haven’t had my whole life to sit on this album like I have “Fragile” and “Close to the Edge,” but I did enjoy what I heard. Only time will tell if these songs stand the test of time. As a guitar player I was always irritated when I’d look at the best rock guitarist of all time lists and see that Steve Howe either wasn’t on them or barely cracked the top 100. Steve Howe is a guitar God in my opinion and not enough people understand that. I grew up with the music of Yes, my dad literally played the music to me while i was in the womb. Yes is one of the best bands of all time and recently I got the chance to chat with one of my heroes, Mr. Steve Howe.
A couple months back I was trying really hard to interview Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull. I was able to land the interview. At the same time the PR person that helped me land the interview recommended the band Stratospheerius to me. I decided to check out this band simply because she did a favor for me, so I figured I could repay the favor. In the process I fell in love with this band.
I’ve been into progressive rock since I was a kid. So much of it is over my head, but that is what I found fascinating about it. Stratospheerius definitely sounds progressive but there are many other elements blended in there, jazz, metal, rock, r&b etc. The weird thing is that they’re also a jam band. I have a hard time wrapping my head around a jam band that plays progressive rock.
Joe Deninzon fronts Stratospheerius and he plays the electric violin. He is currently doing for the violin what Jimi Hendrix did for the guitar. They have an album out called “The Next World” that is phenomenal. They are looking to record a video for the title track “One Foot in the Next World.” You can donate here:
