Yep, they're the main reasons why i ended up here, pple!!!
 
Tortoise got me into Krautrock and lighter fusion like late-Weather Report, Spyro Gyra(!!) & Pierre Moerlen's Gong 
 
Supersilent got me hooked on King Crimson, most other prog/fusion, Terje Rydal and ECM
 
 
So i am a prime example of someone who got into classic 70s stuff through modern bands......
 
anyone else wanna share their experineces of coming into prog from the outside?  which modern or non-prog bands triggered of this interest and obession???

Well, I was a die-hard Zep head before prog. I also heard Roundabout by Yes on the radio and thought it was good. Then I heard about a band named Rush who was like a cross between the two. Rush hooked me on prog forever. Thank you, Rush. Hug

I've Seen All Good People. I heard it on the radio and I thought, "Now this is what music should strive to be like." I've since broadened my tastes, but it started with that one Yes song.

I watched that on the Songs from Tsongas DVD recently, and, with tears in my eyes, decided that it was probably one of the greatest songs ever written.

My dad handed me Dark Side of the Moon. Tongue

Googled "Ummagumma reviews" and ended up here. Cool

Unfourtantly it was Dream Theater for me...

But they led me to Yes...which led me to King Crimson, which led me here and now prog is my favourite genre!
I can strangle a canary in a tin can and it would be really original, but that wouldn't save it from sounding like utter sh*t.

I started my prog excursions with System of a Down. (In my opinion, certainly a prog-related band)

And then I got into Tool, and then The Mars Volta... and then Brian Eno, and Jean-Michel Jarre, and a million other proggy artists.
Go and listen to my music.

Phish and The Mars Volta got me into lengthy compositions and extended improv before I even know what prog was.
