Progressive Music Awards 2017

As I noted in a previous entry, ARW was named in the field of nominees for UK Band/Artist of the Year at the 2017 Progressive Music Awards.

And they did make the final slate of three:
Yes featuring ARW
...but Marillion took home the award, presented by UK comedian Will Smith.

Fittingly there were plenty of other nods to Yes' history and related associates among those in attendance.  Iconic illustrator Roger Dean was on hand to present the Album Cover of the Year award; Steve Hackett was the recipient of The Chris Squire Virtuoso award; Eddie Jobson collected the Lifetime Achievement award, and Carl Palmer was crowned this year's Prog God.  Carl was his usual ebullient self during his acceptance speech, joking that he was "an overnight success 50 years in the making."
