I dunno. Prog was kind of the catalyst that got me to branch out into different types of music, but I probably would have eventually reached that point anyways.

I'm not too huge onto prog. I love classic 70s prog though, but I think the music from the 70s will always be my favorite. It has been my whole life.

There is something special about 70's music. Very down to earth and organic, full of soul. At least the music I've heard.

Well for one thing, I would have never found this place.
And as a result, I wouldn't have cool avatar changes or this...

Haha i grew up listening to PF and The Moody Blues...

so where would I be without Prog?

ummm... I would probably be skinny... not single... and not sitting here at midnight on a prog band forum while listening to Shadow Gallery....


I'd still be heavily into Green Day
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I guess I would be okay since I'm more of a metal head, but saying that a lot of metal bands are prog influenced, so without prog, it's hard to say how many of my fav metal bands wouldn't exist.  But thinking again, I'd still have Sabbath, Priest and Maiden, so I would make do.  :D
I agree, I primarily love metal but I love it with prog influences, ie. longer more complicated songs.

I'd have already become a jazz snob, as opposed to just beginning.

If it weren't for prog, music would just be background noise for anything I did. I wouldn't thoroughly enjoy every little aspect of it like I do now.
