Tony Levin is gearing up to have a busy year. After announcing he’ll be on a world tour with Peter Gabriel, he’s unveiled a hefty set of concerts with Stick Men alongside Markus Reuter and Pat Mastelotto.

Today is Tony Levin’s birthday, and we’ve spent the day listening to the wealth of music he’s been a part of over the years. Here he is rocking it out with Liquid Tension Experiment on “Hypersonic”. The tune is from “LTE3”, which was released in April 2021.
The Stick Men have just released a limited edition EP, marking the trio’s first new music in six years. “Tentacles” is a five-song collection that runs 30 minutes, but that’s plenty of time for the band to dig in.
King Crimson has had a long and storied past in its 50 years with multiple lineups and multiple sounds. Now the highly influential progressive rock band is the focus of a new documentary called “In the Court of the Crimson King”.

Beledo is primarily a guitarist and keyboardist, but his latest album is certainly going to catch the attention of bassists. “Seriously Deep” is named after an Eberhard Weber composition, and Tony Levin is on the record.
