It was a great pleasure to speak to Roine Stolt this week about his forthcoming album with The Flower Kings, ‘Islands’. We also chatted about Yes, working with Jon Anderson on the Anderson Stolt record ‘Invention of Knowledge’ and other projects. He’s another very busy musician – even in these pandemic days.

  • What is the new Flower Kings music like?
  • Is anything happening with Anderson/Stolt?
  • What was the most challenging part of working with Jon Anderson?

  • What is Progeny actually like?
  • What clips do I come up with?
  • What is Mark’s two pence this week?
