I'll be 43 in two months so for me it's the 1980's. Yes I do feel old but when I go to prog festivals most of the fans are either around my age or older so it's not that bad.

My first Prog Exposure happened at the end of the 80s (Yes, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater), although I only really started seriously getting into Prog in 2000. This had to do with growing up in Namibia and South Africa where one is not really exposed too much to prog. End of 1999 I moved to Germany and started blowing my meager salary on tons of CDs. Had to do a lot of catching up.

The 90's, but without knowing it's a real genre.

So you thought it was a fake genre? LOL

Kind of reminds me of something that happened about 12 years ago. I was showing my cousin a list of prog albums. Her then boyfriend(now husband)saw it and said "progressive rock?" "Is there such a thing?" My cousin said to him in response "I think so." Uh, no of course not. Progressive rock is just something I made up. I hired 170 people to make up names of albums by bands that don't really exist just so I could mess with you guys. LMAO!!! Big smileClapTongue

In late 2000's. When I started to listen to Queen, I've noticed that I enjoy more of their complex songs such as 'Innuendo' or 'Liar'. Then  I started to listen to other prog & art rock artists, such as Uriah Heep, Rainbow, then Bowie and finally I came to King Crimson. So finally I'm a proghead Smile

I turned 6 just before 2000 hit. I listened to some prog bands around 2004/ 2005, but I didn't really get into prog specifically until 2009.
And then 66 years before 2000, there were three cousins, seen in my avatar, but as the story goes they all died before prog rock was a thing.

Seventy-nine years ago there were three cousins whose names were Rose Marymarsh, Mary Rosemarsh, and Marsh Maryrose.

I'll be 41 this year - 1986 was the year of discovering Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, Atomic Rooster etc. I'm loving lots of modern Prog nowadays, the bands of recent times are doing an admirable job for sure.
