Steve Howe Receives ‘Prog God’ Award
Steven Wilson also triumphs at Prog Awards.
Yes guitarist Steve Howe was named this year’s Prog God at the 2018 Progressive Music Awards, which took place recently at the Underglobe in London’s Globe Theatre. Howe was the third member of Yes to receive the honour (following Rick Wakeman and Jon Anderson) in its seven-year history (the others are Peter Gabriel, Ian Anderson, Tony Banks and Carl Palmer).
Hosted by comedian Al Murray, the event saw Steven Wilson nominated in three categories and winning two of them – Album Of The Year for To The Bone, and the UK Band/Artist Of The Year, and Caravan picked up a Lifetime Achievement award. There were also wins for the PFM, Space Rocks festival, Big Big Train, Alan Parsons Project, Claudia Brücken, Gary Brooker, John Lees and Phil Manzanera.
Steven Wilson releases a concert film, titled Home Invasion, on November 2 via Eagle Rock Entertainment. It was shot on the final night of his shows at London’s Royal Albert Hall in March this year and will be available in various formats. A deluxe five-LP vinyl set will follow in March. DL
