It's Rick Wakeman on the front cover of the new issue of Prog, on sale today.

Rick discusses his upcoming album, the very proggy The Red Planet, how life has been treating him during lockdown and what really happened with Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and him in ARW. Plus. Rick claims his new album is 'Prog. With a capital P' (he's not wrong either!) so we've trawled through his impressive back catalogue - there's enough albums - to pick out the real prog rock gems.

Before we divulge what's in the rest of the issue, some information on how best to get a hold of your copy of Prog during the current Covid-19 crisis.
