Rob Reed

Best-known as the creator and mastermind behind Welsh prog crowd-pleasers Magenta, Rob Reed assembled one of the most illustrious casts of performers to appear in his musical project Kompendium Steve Hackett, John Mitchell, Nick Beggs, Francis Dunnery, Nick Barrett and Mel Collins are just a handful of the who’s who of prog playing on the Kompendium album Beneath The Waves which was released at the end of 2012.  To find out more about how he persuaded these glittering prog alumni to get involved, DPRP’s Alison Henderson traveled up to the Rhondda Valley in Wales to meet Rob at his recording studios and had a four hour discussion about all things prog, including the interesting choice of footwear of some of his guest musicians while recording their parts and his three and a half minutes of musical perfection.
