For the last forty years Rick Wakeman has immersed himself in music. Leaving the Royal College of Music, Rick has worked with some of the biggest names in rock and pop music, playing on some of the biggest hits by artists as diverse as Cat Stevens, Marc Bolan and David Bowie. Likewise, he has played with one of the biggest rock bands in the world. As a member of Yes Rick played some of the biggest arenas in the world and released massively successful albums including Fragile, Close To the Edge and the live Yessongs.
In 1973 he released his first proper solo album The Six Wives of Henry the VIII, following that album up in the seventies and eighties with other hugely popular and successful albums.
In the eighties Rick also recorded albums in the then popular genre entitled New Age.
Releasing such popular albums as The Aspirant Series of recordings (Aspirant Sunrise, Aspirant Sunset and Aspirant Sunshadows). More recently Rick Wakeman has toured with his fellow former Yes musician Jon Anderson. Together they have toured and released one studio album, The Living Tree.
