Ken Hensley / My Book of Answers (new album)
Uriah Heep‘s Ken Hensley sadly died last year, so his final solo album is issued posthumously. A chance meeting at Alicante airport with a Russian businessman (Vladimir Emelin) – whose hobby was writing poetry – led to an unlikely collaboration. Vladimir’s words were translated into English and Ken fashioned verses and choruses until he had nine new songs! Ken plays slide and lead guitars as well as his classic Hammond playing and of course sings on the record that was finished and scheduled for release before his death.
