The Song That Changed My Life – Marco Minnemann

Marco Minnemann tells about the song that changed his life.

For a new feature on The Prog Report, we have asked a number of great Prog artists what was the song that changed their lives. The answers might surprise you.

******************************************************************************

Drummer extraordinaire Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson) offers his thoughts:

“I very much remember my dad playing me Queen’s album ‘News of the world’. I was 6 years old and when that sequence of ‘We will rock you/we are the champions’ came on the turntable, I grabbed my dad’s tennis racket, which became my imaginary guitar, the living room rug became the stage.. And I started rocking out to these songs. And Queen remains one of my favorite bands ever since.”

Marco Minnemann recently announced a new solo album called “Celebration” due out on June 1 as well as a new album with his group The Aristocrats called “Tres Caballeros” due out on June 23.
