Marillion's Steve Rothery Asks Fans To Kickstart His Solo Album

(Prog) Marillion guitarist Steve Rothery has launched a Kickstarter campaign to support the release of his first-ever solo album. The record will be called The Ghosts Of Pripyat and it's set to appear in September 2014. He's seeking 15,000 to cover costs, and he's already received pledges of more than 4000.

His decision to turn a 30-year ambition into reality comes after he performed a show with his own band at the Plovdiv Guitar Festival last month. Audio and video recordings are on sale now.

Rothery explains on his campaign page: "I had an offer to record a solo album from EMI during the recording of Misplaced Childhood in 1985. However, it led to a strong disagreement within the band, and the idea was shelved.

"While recording Brave at Miles Copeland's chateau in France I was offered a deal to make an instrumental album for his label. I decided to record the first Wishing Tree album instead. more on this story
