From the space rock conference we have a band that needs no introduction one nearly left out of the contest for having the greatness to have transcended the label and be seen as far more than a simple prog band.

From England.

PINK FLOYD!!



From the crossdressing conference we have one of the most creative and famous artists of the prog rock movement.

From England

MIKE OLDFIELD!!!!

for IanHeart


Vegas oddmakers have Floyd as a prohibitive 30 vote favorite but can Oldfield pull the upset.. ahhh.. no but can he keep it close. We shall see!!

I wouldn't remove one from the turntable to put the other on, but The Piper is enough to make e vote the Floyds. Two of my faves, anyway.

PF have always been one of my favourite bands, at least when Waters was with them. Oldfield, on the other hand, has always left me rather cold. So, no contest here.

This is brutal, these are literally two of the primary artists that got me into this stuff in my teens.

Floyd were my favorite band for 2 decades, they could literally do no wrong until the dreadful The Final Cut and the collapse of the band dynamic.

Oldfield has produced three of my favorite albums in Tubular Bells, Ommadawn & Hergest Ridge. There's also a smattering of great releases across the discography (as well as a fair share of dogs).

Given he's going to probably going to get pummeled anyway I'll throw some love to Oldfield.

I find Oldfield boring, like a guy whose brother-in-law owned a studio and Mike didn't get charged hourly rates for dicking around with the 16 track.
 
Floyd all the way.
