This post is directed to PA members who have been here for a long, like a year, or people who have just becaame interested in progressisve music.  I'm just crurious about some of the thoughts proggers had about certain genres and bands that turned out to be completely wrong. 
 
For example,
1.  I thought Van Der Graaf Generator  was a krautrock band
2. I thought Starless and Bible Black was the last Wetton-era album
 
 
Your Nostalgia?

I'll save you the trouble of looking.

I refered to "Jeff Beck's voice on this album" even though Jeff doesn't sing here, it's Rod Stewart. I also refered to Greensleeves as a classic Mozart piece. The next reviewer was kind enough to point out my flaws.

What would've been really funny is if you referred to the guitar playing as "some of Rod Stewart's best."

I just had this discussion earlier this night. If a rose was called "crap", then it would smell like crap, because it would be crap.

well... as a noob, I thought Post-rock was boring, Steve Howe looked like Skeletor, and Captain Beefheart's was a semi-divine, blues-singing cow/Rock and Roll God... but I guess I still believe all of those things

As a teenager living in the town of Genk (Belgium), I initially thought Jimi Hendrix was a Dutch (or Flemish) singer of cheap sentimental ballads (called "smartlappen" in Dutch). I guess I must have got confused because there are thousands of people called Hendrix in the Low Countries! We even had a teacher whose name was Hendricks. Moreover, there was at least one singer of torch songs whose first name actually was Jimmy.

To make things worse, when I first heard a Jimi Hendrix record (probably a bootleg of some kind), I thought Jimi was a bass player, because his guitar sounded so DEEP.

I'll talk about one of my first contacts with Krautrock, back in 1992. I had seen Werner Herzog's "Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes" and got impressed by Popol Vuh's mellotron/moog driven soundtrack, so I rushed to buy what, on specialised press, was mentioned as their most successful album, i.e. "Seligpreisung". I put my CD in the player, ready to set on a vintage electronic trip, and at first I was quite disappointed with what I heard instead... Anyway, nowadays Popol Vuh are among my favourite bands ever.

Do you want me to answer that before or after I check the RIO/Avant samples page?
