About José Cid
Portuguese keyboard player and composer José Cid is mostly known in progressive rock circles for his 1978 concept album 10.000 Anos Depois Entre Vénus e Marte. It is a spacey symphonic rock trip into outer space, dominated by Mellotron, string synth, and other synthesizers, with supporting use of guitars, bass, and drums. Shortly after that he changed course to a pop approach in music, up until the present moment. Oddly enough, few of the people of his country (Portugal) know Cid by his greatest deeds in progressive rock history. Read more about José Cid on Last.fm.
