There are also many today's bands making good things in 4 bars even if they are not called blues. A.p.a.t.t. is a little example of avant music with blues inside. Then if we think to Pink Floyd and their today's followers like Mostly Autumn or RPWL, how can we deny the blues roots of prog? Only because Genesis didn't much blues sticking on British folk?

This is exactly what i am talking about.  You are confusing the blues influence on rock with prog incorporating blues.

If there's an influence, it is expressed in some way in the final producr, otherwise how can you say that there's an influence?

This is a very good viewpoint and one that brings several questions to mind. I like your observation in reference to today's bands. That is totally evident with artists on the Cuneiform label. Maybe not so much during the 80's ...but I know that in recent years the "avant music" with a Blues inside is circulating mostly on the underground music scene.
