Alan Parsons

Alan Parsons Feature/Interview

On 18 March, Alan Parsons plays a rare gig with The Alan Parsons Live Project at Shepherds Bush Empire, London.

In our special feature he chats to David Randall about his pcareer which really started when he was tape op. at Abbey Road, working on two Beatles albums and subsequently "The Dark Side Of The Moon" for Pink Floyd.

He formed The Alan Parsons Project with the late Eric Woolfson in 1975 and enjoyed great album success, although the band never toured.

The hour-long special features some of those artists Alan has worked with over the years and including his own music.
