Echoes In the Studio 2024- In Memoriam

This Memorial Day weekend, we present our annual tribute to rockers now gone with "Echoes In the Studio", a fond farewell to some of those musicians we have lost, in their own words and, in some cases, through personal memoirs by other musician peers. In this part one of four, we salute Tina Turner, Jeff Beck, Meat Loaf, Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac, Procol Harum's Gary Brookr and Keith Reid by Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart, and Stevie Nicks.

Procol Harum- the late Gary Brooker, Keith Reid, Matthew Fisher, Robin Trower

Keith Reid, Procol Harum lyricist, has passed away March 23. “Live with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra" from the eclectic British band Procol Harum, which has the distinction of placing two of the most unlikely songs at the top of the singles chart five years apart with "Whiter Shade of Pale" in 1967 and "Conquistador" in 1972. This ultra-rare interview features organist Matthew Fisher, lyricist Keith Reid, guitarist on the first three studio albums,Robin Trower, and the late singer/pianist Gary Brooker.
