Variation on a Theme, #OccultNine

We’ve covered the books. Eighteen years worth. But something else that kept creeping up on my as I revisited my magical mystery tour through my early days delving into the mystic, that music was always there, and still is. So, rather than address a time period, I thought, why not compile an #OccultNine of the music that has and does inspire me, then and now and for always.


Very hard to limit it to just nine, as I’m sure you’ll find. So, who made the cut?

They’re in no order, so from left to right, the top row features Pentangle, Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull), Ronnie James Dio (Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio); the middle row contains Stevie Nicks (Buckingham Nicks, Fleetwood Mac), Jimmy Page (The Yardbirds, Led Zeppelin), Loreena McKennitt; the bottom row spotlights Ian Gillan (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Gillan), Sandy Denny (Fairport Convention), Wardruna.

So, can you pick nine musical acts that have influenced and enhanced your spiritual journey?
