Backstage With Ken Hensley

Interview with Ken Hensley done while he promoted his new album Running Blind. Hear why it took him 20 years to make a new solo album and the reasons for him leaving Uriah Heep back in the days and also why he stepped out from Blackfoot in the middle of a tour. Why didn’t the cooperation with John Lawton work out? Why did Ken become a born again Christian? It’s all in this interview.

As a bonus there are some out-takes from a Guest DJ Show he did for Metal Express Radio where Ken talks about rehearsing in the room next to Deep Purple in London and why he doesn’t look at himself as a skilled keyboard player. He also shares his love for ZZ TOP’s Eliminator album….

Rest In Peace, Ken!

    Stig is the founder and the president of Metal Express Radio, based out of Oslo, Norway. He has been around doing Metal radio since the mid-eighties. In fact, running Metal Express Radio takes almost all of his time. Is it worth it...? "Most times, yes," Stig says. "My philosophy is to try to give all Metal releases a fair chance to get promoted in one way or another. As you can imagine, it can be an arduous task to listen through about 20 albums every week! Still, I know we have the best METAL dedicated radio on this planet, and that is a reward in and of itself. I hope one day the whole Metal community can and will make listening to Metal Express Radio part of their daily rituals! Yeah, right..."
