Progressive Biography

Starting to discover music around my early teens in 1988, listning to pop bands like Roxette, U2, INXS, etc bands that I'm still keen about and ocasionaly disco from the late'70's like ABBA or Boney M. In 1991 growing in age and having new horizons in musical terms I've listened for the first time Queensryche, Genesis, Jethro Tull and ELP, a dramatic change for me in musical taste, but I was instantly hooked about this music, that will become my absolutely my love. Soon my collection will become bigger and bigger, dicovering many bands from progressive rock/metal. This is a very brief bio of mine, soon I'll come with something more concludent.
