I do think a lot of musicians like prog for all the nuances and complexities. It takes everything up to the next level and gives the performers the opportunity to truly showcase their talents.

 I've been a drummer for over 30 years & most of my favorite players are prog musicians.
However I know many non-musicians that love & appreciate prog rock.

I'd bet many of the musicians on this forum were introduced to prog at a younger age (many here attest to having heard their first prog album during childhood) and were then inspired to study music. At what rate would trained musicians, with an ear for composition, come to appreciate prog if they had never heard a single note of the genre before?
This was my experience.  I became a prog fan first.  My Mom took me, my brother, and treated several of his friends to a Kansas concert.  One of them had a beat up acoustic guitar that he gave her for thanks.  It was the first instrument I picked up...
