The Truants Legends Music Dinner took place on April 12th 2017.
In the court of… Rick Wakeman
“Rick Wakeman is one of rock music’s most instantly recognisable figures, with his flowing blonde locks and, if you have ever seen him on stage, more often than not resplendent in a flamboyant cape. He has worked with some of the most famous names in rock music: David Bowie, Cat Stevens, Black Sabbath and Elton John to name a few.
As you will find out, Rick is one of the finest raconteurs there is in show business. He regularly brings the house down at the annual Progressive Music Awards with his tongue-in-cheek but good natured repartee as a guest presenter.
He is a timely reminder of a time when our rock stars both had something to say and knew how to say it. If he’s only half as funny on the night as he is when I’ve worked with him at the Prog Awards, I can guarantee you’re in for a terrific evening.”
Foreword by Jerry Ewing– Rick’s Biographer, Editor of Prog Rock magazine, and compere for the evening
