Biografia:
Spock’s Beard (ou A barba do Spock) é uma banda norte-americana. O nome surgiu de um episódio de Star Trek: A Série Original, onde o capitão Kirk e outros oficiais entram num universo paralelo, onde Spock tem uma barba. A brincadeira foi feita para o primeiro álbum, cujas músicas, segundo a banda, “pareciam ter vindo de um universo paralelo”.
Formada em 1992 pelos irmãos Alan e Neal Morse, a banda lançou seu primeiro álbum em 1995, com um estilo que recorria ao rock sinfônico da década de 70, especialmente de bandas como Genesis e Gentle Giant, e uma certa influência pop, muitas vezes assemelhando-se a Marillion ou os contemporâneos The Flower Kings. Apesar disso, o leque de estilos em que a banda poderia se encaixar é grande, pois algumas músicas diferem-se muito de outras, como o som pesado de ‘Devil’s Got My Throat’, ou os vocais à-la Gentle Giant de ‘Thoughts’, ou ainda o pop de ‘Wind At My Back’.
A saída de Neal Morse em 2002 decepcionou alguns fãs. A banda continou firme e forte e desde então com o baterista Nick D’Virgilio nos vocais, no entanto em Novembro de 2011 Nick anunciou sua saída da banda (leia AQUI). O disco mais recente do grupo é o ao vivo The X Tour Live (2012).
