Procol Harum in London, UK

Photography by Peter Chow 13 May 2017


The Commander, fifty years on ... gone is 1967's fez, and in its stead is a hat
made to his own design by a milliner in Guildford, Surrey

25 years in the band, the redoubtable Geoff Whitehorn (guitar, second vocal)

Master of organ and synth, Josh Phillips

Much more than a shadowy midfield presence, Matt Pegg on bass guitar

Somewhere behind those huge cymbals, that hard-to-photograph Geoff Dunn, drums

By the second half the dressy shirt had been exchanged for a 'Russian Orthodox' garment

Uncluttered stage, and of course ...

  ... the very stylish Novum backdrop by Julia Brown

The evening's non-Gibson guitar

Matt nimbling mercurially over the big frets

Anyone remember the joke?

As we've remarked before, 'There's only one Geoff Dunn'

Gary with his faux-grand piano, emblazoned with a '50' that was "cut from a greetings card and stuck on with chewing gum"

Metacarpal aloft, and one can assess the healing progress following GB's last London engagement

And it's goodbye from Geoff, Gary, Matt, Geoff and Josh
