In some places I’ve been, there were 2 types of music available ... country and western. And, there were 2 speeds on the John Deere ... slow and slower. It seems lost on some, though, on just how much country artists like Chet Atkins and Les Paul influenced people like Steve Howe. You can clearly hear those influences in many early Yes albums. You may not appreciate it, but the fact remains - if there had been no country music, there would have been no Prog. https://youtu.be/LZz9UFqNPxk

You have heard their first seven LP's, right? But I hear you...

Should have included Zappa though.

Why not? Anyone on this website is fairgame. I guess that means Steely Dan never won a grammy.

Two Against Nature won three in 2001 and Aja got a Hall of Fame award in 2005.

I only know of Tull, but we all know how that ended up... 
All in all, I don't have much respect for the Grammy's. It's an awards show that appeals to a certain audience for a specific kind of music. The kind of music i'm just not really interested in.

I think recognition for people with genuine talent is deserved, I just think the type of musicians that always win at the grammy's have had more than their fair share of recognition and praise at this point. And more than musicians who (in my opinion) show far more talent.

I'm not saying there's no effort on the part of a lot of modern grammy winners, but when the same people keep winning over and over again, it gets stale and predictable.
Levitating downwards,
atomic feedback scream.
