The story of 3.2, Robert Berry’s final album with Keith Emerson

At 10 a.m. on a sunny Monday, Robert Berry enters a meeting room in a central London hotel for the first interview of a press tour to promote The rules have changed, released under the banner of 3.2. Although Berry got off a plane from his Northern California home just over 24 hours ago, he is an affable bundle of energy.

Although he has enjoyed a long career as a musician and producer, spanning a variety of styles, he is acutely aware that The rules have changed may be both the most important album of his career and the one that attracts negative reviews.
