They'll be able to play circles around everyone else, yes, but it's unlikely they'll ever be headlining in big arenas.

This post is basically true with regards to prog as it stands today, but it got me thinking that it is absolutely mind-boggling that at one point in time, prog acts like Yes, Genesis, Tull and ELP were headlining big arenas on a regular basis.

I think it's just mind boggling of the concept of Arena Tours. There just doesn't seem to be nearly as many, save for a few super popular acts.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

My controversial opinion: guns n roses is the most overrated band in the history of hard rock.

That would ACTUALLY be either Radiohead or Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I see your point.

That's what I grew up on.   When I was in high school, almost every band I listened to came - either as an opening act or a headliner - to the New Haven Coliseum or the Hartford Civic Center (the two arenas near me).  It was a regular occurrence.  Prog, metal, hard rock you name it.   

(Though I should point out that both Yes - when they were still prog, I might add - and Genesis - when they morphed to a slightly more pop sound - both regularly did STADIA.)

GNR had a lot of potential, but I feel they are often rated based on what they could've achieved rather than what they actually achieved. Appetite is a classic but everything else is uneven at best. They could've been one of the greatest hard rock bands, but they let drama and ego get in the way.

Check out my album, Edgewater (for fans of Devin Townsend, Porcupine Tree, Frost, etc):

You can say that about all music but I see bands still making a living.  I'm not sure it's declined. I think it's just a certain limit to getting fans. I can point out so many prog mucus I love.  Yet, my taste in prog has changed multiple times over the years.


WTF  :rollin

There's more good music now than ever before, you just have to look a lot harder for it.

I was never impressed with the technicality of Prog bands. Suspyre started as a Progressive Power Metal band with great music and melodies. Then with their next album on onwards, they decided to get all jazzy and technical for the sake of technical, and they lost me. Bands that are basically the instrumental section of Outcry with words are boring as fuck. I'll take the derivative Circus Maximus Dream Theater clones all day over the melodyless "Math Metal" bands.

Missed a lot of this discussion and I know I'm jumping on an older post, but I just want to say I agree with this (except I'm not specifically familiar with Suspyre). Melody is the most important thing to me, way more important than the style of music being different or innovative. Seriously just toss me a Transatlantic or Circus Maximus record any day over something that's new and "inventive" but devoid of melody.

Brent, this is the post your controversial opinions thread. My spelling isn't controversial.   It's expected.  :lol
