Finally it happened! Someone in the modern age of music realised that what Genesis, Yes, Floyd and all those other great guys did years ago is worthy of recognition!
It’s a shame this awards ceremony wasn’t on TV because I think everyone reading this post would probably have watched it live. But for those who haven’t heard, here’s the highlights….
Here’s the full lineup on award winners:
New Blood: TesseracT Live Event: Anathema Grand Design: Pink Floyd’s Immersion Reissues Anthem: Squackett’s A Life Within A Day Album Of The Year: Rush’s Clockwork Angels Visionary: Peter Hammill Lifetime Achievement: Genesis Virtuoso: Carl Palmer Guiding Light: Steven Wilson Prog God: Rick Wakeman
If you fancy joining us tomorrow night for a Genesis Lifetime Achievement party (theirs, not ours obviously!) then get yourself down to Moses Gate in Farnworth, Bolton. We’ll be performing our 2012 show and by the sounds of it, the venue is going to be pretty packed out so get there early!
