The legendary GREG LAKE (founder member of King Crimson and Emerson Lake and Palmer) just released an new album titled “Songs of a lifetime” on Esoteric Antenna. We’re so happy that Greg wants to do an interview by phone for our show on Sunday, March 10. In that same show, well have an interview with Thomas Jonsson from the British / Swedish prog band Thieves Kitchen, this band just released the album “One for Sorrow, two for Joy”. Thomas is also a member of Änglagård.


Some more information about "Songs of a lifetime":
Greg Lake has been a major creative force in music for over 40 years. In 2012 he embarked on a solo tour to perform "Songs of a Lifetime”, a unique concert experience that was conceived whilst Greg was writing his autobiography. "From time to time during the writing these songs would crop up that were in some way crucial or extremely important in the development of my career” he explains. "These were not always songs that I had written myself, but sometimes songs that had been written and performed by other artists as well. I realised that they actually represented the journey that I had shared together with the audience over all these years.”

Behind these songs there was often a story to be told and it occurred to me that the same must be true for the audience as well. It was then that I thought of the idea of doing a series of very small intimate concerts where I could perform these songs and exchange stories with the audience, in a way reliving the time when the music we shared together really became part of our identity and in a way became the backdrop to our lives, a sort of tapestry I suppose.

These recordings were taken from a selection of the shows performed on the tour”. The album is a unique record of a unique live experience from one of the legendary figures in Rock music.
