Alan Parsons

Alan formed the core of the Project along with Eric Woolfson. He has writing credit on all of the Project tracks with the exception of Total Eclipse, written by Andrew Powell although, apparently, his major contributions were to the instrumental tracks. In addition to writing, he also produced and engineered all the albums as well as playing a variety of instruments. Since the end of the Project he has released a number of "solo" albums and has performed several concerts, spawning the album Alan Parsons Live.

Creo hablar en nombre de muchos auténticos fans cuando digo que nos gustaría que "La banda original" con todos sus miembros, Alan, Eric, Ian, Stuart, Andrew, Lenny, Chris, John M, Colin, David, Gary Brooker, The Royal Philarmonia, etc, etc, etc... (Disculpen los que me olvido de mencionar) editaran un nuevo CD que perfectamente podrían dedicar a todos ellos y todos los que les hemos seguido desde tantos años. Saludos desde Barcelona Jaime
