Must-Own Billy Sherwood projects: Gimme Five

Producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist Billy Sherwood has had a lasting and significant impact on progressive rock. After contributing to a series of Yes projects in the 1990s, Sherwood issued excellent solo albums from 1999’s The Big Peace to his current releaseDivided by One. Work with stand-alone bands like Circa (featuring fellow ex-Yes Tony Kaye) and World Trade is also often overlooked but stellar. So, where to start? Here are five essential Billy Sherwood projects not to be missed …
CONSPIRACY – LIVE (2007): Each song deftly combines pop rock elements and progressive rock on this underrated concert collaboration between Yes bassist Chris Squire and Billy Sherwood on guitar, vocals and keyboards. Along the way, they touch on many of the high points from their 2003 album Conspiracy, which also included Jay Schellen on drums. Beyond those tracks, the live project incorporated Yes’s “Universal Garden” and “The More We Live,” as well.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
