Have you ever wanted to get into a band, but you feel intimidated by their discographies? Prog Primer was created to help you, the listener, get a sense of where to start.
Of course you know who Adrian Belew is. If you’re a prog fan, you’ve likely heard his work with King Crimson. You probably have heard his work with Zappa, Bowie, Trent Reznor, and others. But how well do you know his solo work? I brought on Adrian Belew super-fan Cedric Hendrix to walk us through his diverse and brilliant discography. He shares his own personal story about how he discovered Adrian’s music, and shares some of the best entry points for those who are wanting to get into his large and varied discography. As he’s still making great music, we might have to do another one of these in a few years, but that’s a good problem to have.
