The Outer Limits: How Prog Were Lucifer's Friend?

This German band jumped from style to style with each album, took inspiration from both rock and jazz fusion, and still can’t stand mainstream music.

Peter Hesslein delights in confusion. The Lucifer’s Friend guitarist chuckles at the way the band confounded their record label, Vertigo. “When we gave them our second album Where The Groupies Killed The Blues in 1972, they didn’t know what do with it. This was so different to our debut album [self-titled, 1970], it totally baffled them.”
