Dan Reed sang a couple of lines on this ‘quarantine’ version of the prog rock band Gentle Giant’s ‘Proclamation’.
Dan appears in the video at around 1m 31s and 1m 43s
I had the great honor and pleasure to be invited to sing a couple lines on ‘Gentle Giant’s Fan Video’ for the masterful song ‘Proclamation’ directed and edited by Noah Shulman, the son of lead vocalist Derek Shulman, who was the man responsible for signing DRN to Polygram all those many years ago. Check out this work of art by Noah… and it’s simply great seeing Derek back on the mic! Do I sense a Gentle Giant Reunion Tour?!! That would be awesome 🙂
From the YouTube post:
Fans from around the world celebrate their love of music and Gentle Giant with their renditions of “Proclamation” from the album “The Power & The Glory”.
This video also marks the first time in 40 years that all members of Gentle Giant appear on screen and play together in a ‘virtual reunion’.
Some notable contributors also make an appearance such as Jakko Jakszyk of King Crimson, Billy Sherwood of Yes, E.L.O. bassist Lee Pomeroy, Dan Reed of the Dan Reed Network, Richard Hilton of Chic and Mikey Heppner of Priestess.
Music is a universal language that brings people together. Thank you to all the fans around the world for helping to make this happen.
