Lyrics for Rick Astley prog song
Never (10 minute instrumental breakdown)
Gonna (7 1/2 minute jazz section)
Give (5 minute keyboard solo)
You (12 minute sax section)

Rick Astley? Not famous? I'm sorry, which edition of the internet have you been using for the past decade or so? LOL
Porg for short. My love of music doesn't end with prog! Feel free to discuss all sorts of music with me. Odds are I'll give it a chance if I haven't already! :)

How many editions are there? Confused

In the US at least I would not consider him a household name. Until this thread, I haven't heard him mentioned in quite a long time.

There are kids today, here in the U.S., who know Astley because of the whole Rickroll thing. When you combine that with everyone who remembers him from when he was relevant you'll realize that he's much more known here than you think.

The hell he isn't famous. His Never Gonna Give You Up video reached 1 billion views this year on YouTube. The song, his debut single, reached Number 1 in 25 countries. By 1993, he'd sold approximately 40 million records worldwide. He can be currently heard on a T-Mobile ad. And now it's stated that the guy's a Camel fan. I'd say he's alright!

Well if he is famous then he's definitely a lot more famous in the UK and Europe than he is in the US. That's for sure.

^ Semantics entry level lesson: Michael Jackson is more famous than Prince. This doesn't mean Prince "isn't" famous.

LOL

They are also both dead so I would use the past tense as opposed to the present tense with them. 

Anyway, imo, you would have to say Belinda Carlisle, Debbie Gibson and Cyndi Lauper are all famous too. :P I suppose we all have different ideas of what fame is and it's kind of subjective. Most young kids probably haven't heard of Yes so does that mean Yes isn't famous? I personally wouldn't say many people that others consider famous to be famous but maybe it's more of not my cup of tea or not on my radar. I haven't seen anyone wearing Rick Astley t shirts or heard or seen much of him mentioned(other than one song on a tv commercial)for over 25 years so..... Let me just say that when I think of someone famous RA probably isn't even one of the first 100 people to pop up in my head(if at all). 

Since you love to argue so much I'll let you get the last word in. I'm done with this discussion though.

^ OK, I'll not give you another lesson. You need one though, about the notions of subjectivity and objectivity.

Since you like to fortify your FALSE argument with gibberish, I'll let you go this time. The easier way is to accept you're wrong. I don't like arguing. Your nonsensical attitude calls for it.
