Progressive Biography

Date of birth: 6-23-41

I was first introduced to progressive rock around 1970 with bands like Pink Floyd, Uriah Heep and Yes.

Number of CDs in my collection of original progressive albums probably number between 800 - 1000 (all sub genres of progressive rock/metal)

My favourite progressive bands/artists :
1] Ayreon
2] Blind Guardian
3] Dream Theater
4] Evergrey
5] Lacrimosa
6] Marillion
7] Pendragon
8] Therion
9] Tool
10] Within Temptation

My favourite progressive albums include :
1] Chronicles of Dysphoria - Chalice
2] Echos - Lacrimosa
3] Grond - Orkrist
4] Hastings 1066 - Thy Majestie
5] Images and Words - Dream Theater
6] In Search of Truth - Evergrey
7] Lemuria/Sirius B - Therion
8] Light of Day, Day of Darkness - Green Carnation
9] Nostradamus - Solaris
10] The Edge - Eternity X

I am a long time prog rock/metal fan. I live in the hotbed of progdom, Arizona. Just kidding. I suppose my view of progressive rock/metal is somewhat liberal. That is, I tend to think of prog rock/metal as a giant far spreading family tree with lots of interesting branches to climb and experience. Although I know and appreciate the seminal prog bands of yesteryear, I am not married to them and I find the the various renditions of prog music today every bit as compelling.
