Camel - Lunar Sea (Live)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ANDY WARD
To mark Andy Ward's 65th birthday today, 28 September 2017, we are highlighting an excellent live recording of 'Lunar Sea' from the 1976 album 'Moonmadness'.
When the band were unable to find a suitable concept to follow the success of 'The Snow Goose', they decided to do an album of songs that reflected the personalities of the individual members. The dynamic and complex 'Lunar' Sea was written for Andy who chose the title because he liked the play on words of lunar sea-lunacy.
Andrew Latimer calls Andy one of the most innovative drummers of his time as well as an "incredibly sensitive player". Peter Bardens commented in the Curriculum Vitae DVD that when he first joined the band he was "especially impressed" with Andy Ward and Doug Ferguson as a rhythm section describing how tight they were.
We wish Andy a happy birthday and celebrate this milestone with this fabulous clip and wish him many returns of the day.
