– keyboardist Richard West discusses his first live shows, both as a fan and a performer, in celebration of the band’s new live album »European Journey«
thr2British progressive metal protagonists THRESHOLD’s new live album »European Journey« was recorded during the November 2014 »For The Journey« tour and consists of 15 live tracks. In celebration of the release, we caught up with keyboardist Richard West to ask him if any live shows he attended as a fan made him want to get up on stage and play, as well as discussing some of the first live shows that he performed:

“The first one might have been a school event and we did some covers. I remember we were doing ‘Another Brick In The Wall’ by PINK FLOYD and the guitarist couldn’t play the solo so I put my keyboard through a distortion pedal and I did the Dave Gilmour solo – I think that was my first gig.”

Guitarist Karl Groom commented on the band’s new release:

“The »For The Journey« tour, where we made the live recordings, was much like most recent THRESHOLD dates, in so much as the band thoroughly enjoy gigging and appreciate the support we get from our fans. This is the atmosphere we wanted to capture in our playing and I believe that translates well on this release. The aim in mixing was to keep the integrity of the original performance and that was why we recorded plenty of shows. It is good to be able to present this THRESHOLD line up to people who have not been able to attend gig and it is also a great memory of the tour.”
