One of my "deep cut" Marillion favorites. And as far as I know the only live performance of this scene.

If John Dowland had his own rock band it might have sounded like this.

This is where Dream Theater got those double-fill riffs and time signature tricks that are on a lot of their early stuff.

Story
Tagline
I am a freelance writer and the author of Superconductor, a classical music blog. And I work for the New York Daily News.
Introduction
Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.


Bragging rights
I've interviewed Placido Domingo.
