It has been three years since the passing of Colin Tench who passed away peacefully on Dec 27, 2017, due to natural causes.
Colin was 63 years old and had just released his 2nd Colin Tench Project album, “minor Masterpiece” just 3 days earlier. Anyone that knew or had worked with him could definitely tell you that Tench was an under-rated guitarist and an exceptionally talented musician who was charismatic and witty. Colin was well respected and loved, he was a rare breed a friend, and mentor to so many.
According to Tench
“I love music. I hate music by numbers. If there is one album I consider to be a template of how to do things, The Beatles White album would be it. Something I realized recently, is that I am not a fan of the genre we call “Prog”. If I list every piece of music I love, all of it falls into that genre tho’! There is a reason. Almost none of my favorite music was aimed at a prog market. It didn’t exist! Did Genesis, Zappa, Steven Wilson, Beethoven, Pink Floyd design prog albums? Nope! Neither will I ever want to.
