Drummer Mick Pointer of Marillion and Arena
Prog (Issue 109) - 7 May 2020
The following part in the interview stands out:
Your prog hero?
Neil Peart. I was a bit late to the Rush party, but hearing him play on the 2112 album was a game changer for me. I was lucky enough to shake his hand after a Rush show in Brighton in 1980.
What’s the most important piece of prog music?
The entirety of 2112. When I heard it I thought, ‘Now that’s what prog music should be.’
Your favourite prog album cover?
The Visitor by Arena. I thought all Hugh Syme’s artwork for Rush was brilliant, and I was lucky enough to work with him on that one in 1998. He says it’s one of his favourites too, and I’m very proud of that.
