English progressive rock legend Rick Wakeman is Cerys’s musical guest this month. Rick famously played the piano on one of the late David Bowie’s most famous hit records, Life On Mars. In the late 1960s he was in huge demand as a session musician and also played on Cat Stevens’ worldwide hit Morning Has Broken. He later joined the ‘prog-rock’ band Yes as their keyboard player. Known for his flamboyant style, he continues to pursue a successful solo career. (Photo: Rick Wakeman behind a grand piano. Credit: Universal Music)
