Gamma Ray's Kai Hansen chooses Animals As Leaders as his prog heroes

The Gamma Ray and ex-Helloween guitarist discovered the next level with Animals As Leaders

“Rush and Genesis have always been favourites of mine – you couldn’t get away from albums like Foxtrot or Selling England By The Pound in the 70s. I really loved Dream Theater’s first album [When Dream And Day Unite] as well, because I thought the singer [Charlie Dominici] sounded like Geddy Lee, but it was my 17-year-old son Tim who introduced me to the modern progressive bands. He also plays a guitar solo on Follow The Sun on my new album.
