Marshall of Rock Interview: Bassist/Producer/Engineer Billy Sherwood of Nektar talks new album, Yes connection and more

I had the pleasure to talk to the multi-talent Billy Sherwood today and it was some great conversation. Billy is a man of incredible talent, with a true and passionate love of music. A master musician, award winning producer, mixer and engineer, Billy has worked with an A to Z list of legendary rock artists in every facet of the music business. I caught up with Billy while on his way to rehearsal with legendary art rock band Nektar, as the other guys were in his rear-view mirror as we spoke. We touched on Billy's involvement with Nektar and their only 2012 gig tomorrow night (Sept. 6) at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano, California. We also talked about one of his other projects, The Prog Collective, his over 20 year involvement with the band Yes, his rock production work on many rock tribute albums, including a new one for Supertramp called 'Songs of the Century: An All-Star Tribute To Supertramp'. Billy also talked about his production/engineering work with a wide range of artists, inlcuding Paul Rodgers, Dangerous Toys, and Motorhead, sharing an interesting story about recording with Lemmy at the on-set of the Los Angeles riots that you've got to hear. Add to that his take on the current state of the music industry, what created his passion for music in general and what iconic entertainment figure was his Godfather, and it makes for some interesting music conversation.

by on Aug.27, 2012, under INTERVIEWS, LINKS, ROCK NEWS, ROCK TOUR DATES, VIDEO

Grand Rapid Michigan's own Pop Evil have shown that they are really road warriors that truly care about their fans. They are seemingly always on the road or working to further the reach of the great American Rock N' Roll that they deliver. The band is currently on the Trespass America tour in support of their latest album 'War Of Angels' with Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engine, Trivium and more. I had a chance to chat with Pop Evil drummer Chatchi Riot earlier this week while on the way to Oklahoma City. read more...
