David Cross Interview – Crossover album with Peter Banks – 415

Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier

I hope you heard Mark’s tribute to Neil Peart who very sadly died recently – I put the audio of his video introduction into the YMP feed. I’m not qualified to comment on Rush or Neil Peart so I’m grateful to Mark for letting me use his words which I’m sure come from us all after the unexpected and tragic news.

You may have been expecting the second part of our Trevor Horn episode this week but when we had the chance to talk to prog rock violin legend, David Cross about his collaboration with Peter Banks, we couldn’t miss the opportunity. So we will return to Dollar and Trevor Horn next week. Later in this episode, you’ll hear that great interview which covers not only the newly-released Crossover album but also David’s recollections of Peter and of the early London prog rock scene, where he played with his own bands and, of course, King Crimson.

  • How did Crossover come about?
  • What impression did David have of Peter?
  • Who else is on this album?

Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!

Wow very cool show indeed
I’m glad that David was able to make this wonderful album with Peter I really enjoyed the show as always.
Very cool to have a inside look at how this wonderful music was made.

Everything about this one was lovely. The warmth of their relationship, the interview and those short clips. Made you feel
good inside.

Very Interesting – Another good reason to follow you guys – You teased the album(cover) a bit back last year, and based on this, even knowing it was Peter’s last hurrah still didn’t make me that interested, but now , with the interview and David’s comments I will give this a listen….
