Keith Reid and Gary Brooker founded Procol Harum in 1967. From then on, Keith Reid`s surreal lyrics defined the “intellectual identity” of the band.
With the worldwide chartbreaker A Whiter Shade Of Pale the writer/lyricist-duo Brooker/Reid wrote an all time rock classic. And with Homburg, A Salty Dog, Conquistador, Pandora’s Box, Grand Hotel, and the Live With The Edmonton Symphony Orchestra album Procol Harum became one of Rocks defining bands.
Keith Reid wrote all Procol Harum lyrics from 1967 until now. Besides Bob Dylan there is barely any artist, whose lyrics are as important for the songs` intentions as Keith Reid`s words are for the art of Procol Harum.
