Q&A: Rick Wakeman

The keyboard legend and former Yes man finds time to tell Prog about his charity concerts, revisiting his classic albums and the perils of doing live performances with your kids.

The day Prog and Rick Wakeman hook up, over a couple of tarts (of the edible kind) and coffee at the spacious Festival Hall canteen on London’s Southbank, overlooking a wintry grey Thames River, Wakeman is due to play at next door’s Queen Elizabeth Hall. It’s a low-key charity event in aid of the Orion Orchestra, a youth outfit he’s worked with before, who rely on sponsorship to carry out their good work.
