Banks discusses A Chord Too Far

Genesis keyboardist Tony Banks is the focus of an hour-long video interview premiered by Prog.

It’s been filmed by Cherry Red Records to promote the launch of his solo career anthology A Chord Too Far, released in July.

Banks – recipient of this year’s Prog God Award at the Progressive Music Awards – says: “One of the reasons for putting it out is that, people who’ve liked what Genesis have done and my contribution to that, might be quite interested, because they didn’t get a great hearing first time out. It got less and less as the years went by – while the music got better.”

A Chord Too Far is on sale now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
