If the poll is asking who I really believe could do no wrong and utter magical words 100% of the time I'd have to vote for...none of the above.  If my vote goes to who did the most right and dished out the highest % of prog wisdom it would be between Zappa & Fripp.  Since I've read Zappa's autobio several times I know his strong and weak points well and while I'd love it if Fripp wrote one as well, I have to go with what I've read in his many interviews and tour journals.  Zappa get's my vote Wink


Am I right to guess you're from the States? Embarrassed

Guilty as charged...why do you ask?


I grew up in the US but my mom is English, so I'm usually able to see both sides of the coin when it comes to potentially ambiguous sarcasm and its reception on the part of new and old worlders.

No offense Wink

None taken Cool  

FZ & Fripp are both masters of ambiguous sarcasm and I love them for it Wink

Chuck Schuldiner
Not a single bad album. He was infact improving with every subsequent album. Those last 3 Death albums still sound as fresh as ever..also the one under Control Denied. The ultimate composer, riffmaster and soloist. Man! those riffs... The Alexander of Extreme Metal.
Did nothing wrong except leaving us too early.
RIP CHUCK!!!

True that. Chuck definitely left his mark, and luckily his fans (counting myself) don't seem to have such an unhealthy obsession with his person and focus on his music. He gave the impression of being a really unassuming, focused guy.

That would be the Fripp-meister.

None of the above.

I'd go with Pete Townshend. Although he's basically an old creep, his words are actually quite clever.

As a matter of interest, why do you think he is an old creep?

This I would also be interested in knowing.

I was genuinely surprised to see Arjen Lucassen's name missing from the list.

It's a tie between Zappa and Patton for me.

Robert Wyatt, although he'd scoff at the concept.
