Fish

Born April 25, 1958, in Edinburgh, Scotland, Derek William Dick (aka Fish) was the dramatic lead vocalist for prog rock band Marillion until beginning a solo career in 1988. Marillion was initially formed as an instrumental band in 1979 by guitarist Steve Rothery (b. November 25, 1959; Brampton, England), drummer Mick Pointer, bassist Doug Irvine, and keyboard player Brian Jelliman. Irvine began singing in 1980 on the group's first demos, but a year later Marillion invited Fish to join as vocalist, and he assumed the frontman position beginning with their 1983 debut album, Script for a Jester's Tear. His strong Peter Gabriel-inspired vocals enforced critics' accusations that Marillion owed more than just a heavy debt to Genesis, but six more albums followed. Musical difficulties between Fish and the band caused him to leave after 1988's Thieving Magpie (La Gazza Ladra). He was replaced by Steve Hogarth (b. May 14, 1956; Kendal, England), a vocalist quite similar in sound and style to Fish himself.

In 1989, Fish worked with Peter Hammill on Hammill's Fall of the House of Usher project, but was then replaced by Andy Bell. His debut solo album, Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors, appeared one year later and continued the theatrical flair of Marillion's quasi-concept albums. After 1991's Internal Exile and the 1993 covers album Songs from the Mirror, he moved from EMI to Dick Bros. The Acoustic Session CD appeared in 1994, and one year later Fish released a double album (released separately), Yin and Yang. Sunsets on Empire was issued in 1997, followed by the well-received Raingods With Zippos on Chocolate Frog Records in 1999. During the new millennium Fish has continued releasing CDs on the Chocolate Frog label, including 2002's Fellini Days, 2003's Sashimi double-CD set recorded live in Poland, and 2004's Field of Crows. Fish released 13th Star in 2007 and embarked on a North American tour the following year. ~ John Bush, Rovi

Marrillion was never the same after Fish left. True story.

He's amazing. Always. Love him. I never tire of him. True artist and poet.
Yang has the wrong artwork now.
LIGHT AND RAISE THOSE ZIPPO'S!!! WE LUV YA FISH!!!
Lit up Friars every time.
Ok, it turns out that Fish provided a song for that album. However, considering that it's supposed to be Suits, it's still the wrong artwork
Something off of Suits is playing and the artwork says It's Christmas Time. WTF?

WTH is anyone still debating Marillion with Fish vs. H? The band spent 7 years with Fish vs. 25 (TWENTY-FIVE ! ) years with H. Can we please move on?

Great cover of Pink Floyd's 'Fearless' (written by Waters and Gilmour, Pandora!).
Very Talented Singer and the music has always been great since the days of Marillion! :)

John, Steve Hogarth is entirely different than Fish, although Steve does great stuff too! Fish lyrics and the stories they emulate in feelings and vision makes Fish one of the best vocalists and lyricists OF ALL TIME!!!
i was just listening to new marillion -wth/steve hogarth - this is really nice - makes me want to go out and buy this record -i have never heard this before - nice gtr - far out arrngement - fish is good
Why is it this guy is known by so few people? He's simply incredible! Look up the Fish Marillion Market Square reunion on You Tube. Great stuff. I was so fortunate to see Fish perform with Marillion, back in the day!
i love, love, love Fish!!!! so lucky to have seen him in the USA in 2008!
Know Fish...Know Marillion... . N o Fish... NO MARILLION!

Great stuff....FIS H
I feel blessed that I was able to see him live 3 years ago.
He was replaced by Steve Hogarth (b. May 14, 1956; Kendal, England), a vocalist quite similar in sound and style to Fish himself. Really? I think they are night and day. I enjoy both of them, but Hogarth is a very different singer.
I haven't heard Marillion or Fish in YEARS. This was a blast from the past.
Sounds like a cross between Puscifer and Peter Gabriel.
Awesome!

FISH is great and his blogs are something to read - made me laugh how he writes - expression is human and humorous* great ONKLE FISH

Very enjoyable and talented artist. This is why I love pandora. Would not have ever heard of this band.

Phish is better....wa y better
I don't hear Rush at all. When they first came on I thought Collective Soul was doing something experimental - - j u s t from the vocals, but after awhile it really did sound like Peter Gabriel.
Though I agree with the Genesis and Grabriel like comparison's ; Fish's Voice has that extra octave and special delivery that clearly sets him apart.

Love his voice!
they just sound like a faster paced, louder replica of Rush

and btw: he doesn't suck, it's all a matter of taste. I can see some unlikeable things about him to people who like certain other styles of music but he doesn't suck. just something different
