ASIA, the multi-platinum selling English supergroup, formed in London in 1981, are celebrating their 40th anniversary by releasing a 5CD boxset The Reunion Albums:2007-2012 through BMG Records.
Rick Wakeman & The English Rock Ensemble recently released “The Red Planet.” The album features 8 newly composed pieces, especially for this project, and harks back to Wakeman’s critically acclaimed debut album “The Six Wives of Henry VIII” where there were 6 heavy keyboard pieces based around a central subject matter.
Jimmy Haun got his start in the music business through his childhood friend Michael Sherwood and toured with Michael's father’s (Bobby Sherwood) jazz band at 15 years old playing jazz standards and hits of the day. Too young to go into the lounges they toured, the boys were forced to sit backstage between shows and work up their own brand of music. Out of this came their first band Lodgic and later Michael's younger brother Billy Sherwood would take over the role as bass player.
