Progressive Biography

I'm now in my fifties and thanks to this amazing site/forum, just a few years ago I (re)discovered my passion for the music I grew up with and have never stopped to love.
In fact for many many years I thought PROG had died and tried not to think much about it as to not so deepen my sorrow.

I confess to have long survived (musically speaking) on a strict but rich diet of a handful of bands from the old times (you can guess, can't you: VDGG, ... ?) spiced, so to say, with just a few collected from the 80s (TALK TALK f.e.) .
And, thank God, lots of female singers: SANDY DENNY, Joni Mitchel, Tracy Chapman, R. L. Jones, Annette Peacock, etc etc

But then I found PA !
Although I registered back in 2011, and stop by the website since then almost everyday, only very recently posted for the first time and today here I am presenting myself.

You all out here are responsible for my regaining the pleasure of listening to new GOOD MUSIC, and that has bettered my life so unexpectedly.
I am very grateful to this wonderful community of music lovers and plan to stay around and share my pleasure with you for many years to come.

Some Albums I Love:

Fish out of Water - from the master CS
Cordon Bleu - Solution
All Genesis up until (including) "And then there were three"
The first five Led Zepp
Everything from 2nd fase Talk Talk
Transatlantic - Whirldtour
Anathema - anything they have made and I listened to
Anekdoten - same as above
Soft's from ... You Know Who
The Snow Goose
