It was great to speak to Gerald Bassols from Spain this week all about his amazing book, The Musical Instruments of Progressive Rock which very much does what it says on the tin. Stay tuned for that conversation.
- Whatare the best ‘Spinal Tap’ moments in his book?
- Did digital technology kill musical creativity?
- What instruments typify progressive rock?
Listen to the episode and let us know what you think!
The book on Amazon.co.uk!

The music I use is the last movement of Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite. This has been used as introduction music at many Yes concerts. My theme music is not take from a live concert – I put it together from: archive.org

Good timing! I’m halfway through this book which I received for Christmas. It definitely appeals to a certain sort of person (like me). Looking forward to hearing the chat with Gerald
Thanks Tim! I’m Gerard, the author, I’d love to receive some feedback when you will have finished it, if you want to, my emailaddress is on the front cover flap. I hope that you enjoy the book!
Great show & interview. Thanks to Gerard for the work involved in putting this book together & for self publishing it, which I know is quite an undertaking. I’ve ordered it from Amazon & should get my copy on Tuesday.
Thanks a lot for ordering the book, I hope you will enjoy it! If once you will have finished it you want to give me some feedback, I’d appreciate it, my emailaddress is on the front cover flap in the book.
Another glorious episode. I’m looking forward to my copy of this excellent-looking book arriving soon. What an invaluable musical resource. Good to listen to your informative and thoughtful interview with the quietly authoritative author, Gerard Bassols. Also, great questions guys. That makes so much difference. YMP 2022 is well underway!
Thanks Simon! If you will get the book I hope that you will enjoy it! And if you’d like to send me any feedback I will appreciate it, my emailaddress is on the front cover flap of the book.
