Spock's Beard - Comments

|Once upon a time there was a progressive rock band, a truly magical one that was going places. Just as the band peaked with the creation of its masterpiece – a two-disc concept album – the charismatic, all-important frontman quit. But all was not lost; the drummer took over as lead singer, and the band lived happily ever after.
Sound familiar? Probably, but we're not talking about Genesis here. A home-grown progressive rock band, Los Angeles-based Spock's Beard, followed the same pattern when singer/composer Neal Morse left the band in 2002 and drummer Nick D'Virgilio added lead vocals to his job duties.
Spock's Beard v2.0 made three CDs since Morse's departure, but then took a long break. The band recently re-emerged with an excellent CD, X, the first album to be independently financed (with a little help from their friends) and self-released by the band.
In 2011 Nick D'Virgillo leaves the Beards. The new members are the amazing vocalist/guitarist Ted Leonard (Enchant, Thought Chamber) and
Jimmy Keegan (Santana, John Waite), who's been the Beards tour drummer for close to 10 years now.
From Spock's Beard website: "Look for a new live Spock's Beard DVD and extensive European tour in early 2012, followed by our 11th studio release sometime in the summer. We're energized and excited, and will be posting updates and sound samples as we progress".
