Progressive Biography

Can' tell when exactly, i got into the progressive rock genre. I was listening to Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and others classic rock band when i discover Pink Floyd "Dark side of the Moon". Then my friends made me discover Yes, Genesis and others Prog acts. Those were great years! In the 80's, i was listening to the New Wave genre heard on the radio. Completely different then the Prog Rock, i was exploring new sound and was seduce by the keyboards sound of Depeche Mode and those more obscure industrial bands (Nine Inch Nails, Ministry) After that, i rediscover Prog Rock with new bands like Pendragon, IQ and Flower Kings, who were part of the Neo Prog genre. My work in records store in the 90's made me listen to the inevitable commercial music, but i was still a Prog Rock fan deep inside me. I realize that a true lover of that genre, has to enjoy and listen to as many as possible sub-genre of Prog Rock, which is enough to fill 85% of your music listening time. I am still enjoying those Prog related bands, a bit of classical music, some Jazz and soundtrack music, also, because i simply love music, maybe too much...
