what happened next

         Were the biggest thing out of Aylesbury for years and by the mid eighties were filling huge arenas. Fish left the band in 1988 and has since released a considerable number of solo albums and is still touring as at 2012. Marillion employed Steve Hogarth as their new singer and 20 plus years on, retain a loyal and big fanbase which paid for one album to be made in return for credit on the sleeve. Their style has changed with only an occasional nod back to the Fish era.

n 2007, Fish headlined Aylesbury's Hobble on the Cobble annual event, finally being able to sing Market Square Heroes in the Market Square. What made this particularly noteworthy and indeed very newsworthy was that he replaced his band for this song with Messrs Kelly, Rothery, Trewavas and Mosley making this the first 'classic' Marillion performance in nearly 20 years

Marillion came back to Friars in 2013, selling out again and drawing an audience from all over the UK and beyond

Marillion were inducted into the Friars Heroes hall of fame in 2009.
