Any Marillion fans out there?

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Hey just wondering if there are any Marillion or Fish fans on these boards? I'm absolutely loving the new Marbles album and can't wait for Marillion's concert in San Francisco in September.

    Well, thanks for posting. I can see this 6-degrees of separation thing isn't working to well in this case. I alway found my love of Marillion and Apple had some common elements of appreciating the quality in the underdog.

    I guess this thread is going to sink to the bottom real quick.

    For the masses who doen't know Marillion, you may want to check them out if you like things like old Genesis, Radiohead, Rush. You need to be someone who like to read and think about lyrics. They make long songs and quite a few concept albums. They've had two singers Fish and now Steve Hogarth. They each have their strengths, but the switch caused a lot of fans to leave the fold years ago. Fish has his solo career going. He has had some winners and loosers in my opinion, but I buy them all.

    It's a good album, I think. Only a few of the songs are cheesy and the rest I really quite enjoy. I understand Fish has a solo project, although I've not heard it.

    Fish has had many solo projects and Marillion has had more albums without Fish than with him.

    For Fish info:

    Any of the Marillion/Fish albums are still worth listening to if you liked MC. They are Script for a Jester's Tear, Fugazi, B-Sides Themselves and Clutching at Straws.

    Not a big prog-rock fan, myself. Though I did own a couple Styx records in the mid-80s...

    Big Marillion/Fish fan here! Of course, I was around for the "birth" of prog-rock...

    johnq, I was at The Whiskey for Lemmy's 50th B-day bash when Metallica opened the show in black wigs performing as "the Lemmy's"! What a show!!!
