The bass and drums are playing in 6/4 while the piano, voice, and guitar are playing in 7/4

Kerry's keyboards add so much

Often so subtle

Kerry has such a delicious voice a great contrast to Derek's

Trouble was he sang so quietly which could be handled in the studio but caused problems live. Often others (Ray et alia) took his parts

Gary is a bit like Martin Barre ubiquitous and omnipresent but rarely 'in your face'
