Somehow I get the impression most of the people listening to progressive music (and posting to this forum) are male.  Is this true?  Is prog a 'guy thing'?  If it is I have no idea why.

Thoughts???

My first girlfriend had a large collection of prog LP's. And another liked some prog I played for her. But sadly, we proglovers are male at least 95%...

Women are complex creatures, so they need easy music to compensate.

Sorry, just had an argument with my wife  .

It's still an interesting question. I don't have an explanation. There are without a doubt women around who are die hard progfans, but they are certainly not a majority. Not much Gentle Giant-babes, for instance. There are more women around who like a more "progrock-lite" kind of music, like late period Genesis or Camel. But why? I don't know either.

Yes, and you do like 'moody' music too, so I noticed. That's cool.

Women are more interested in groovy, rhythmically oriented (= sensual/sexual) music. Must have something to do with cycles, the moon and so on. [/world formula]

I know a girl who really likes Van der Graaf Generator. The only thing is: she doesn't like Peter Hammill on it  .

I don't know, I think it's a pity that there are not many girls who like progrock. It's not a problem, but sometimes it's just a pity. Nothing more, nothing less.

Then she should listen to "The Long Hello" (The Long Hello was a group/project by Van der Graaf Genertaor without Peter Hammill)

Thanks, Lostrom  ! I didn't know that such an album existed. I still learn a lot on this forum.
