1980's.... I was too young in the 70s - but in 1985 I started listening to Van Halen and Iron Maiden and got dragged into Rush and Marillion right after that.

In the early Seventies, when prog took root in Italy. I still remember listening to PFM's "Impressioni di Settembre" and Le Orme's "Gioco di bimba" on the national radio, when I was all of 11 years old. English prog came a few years later, when I had already started attending upper secondary school.

80's with Rush, Yes, and a bit of Pink Floyd and Kansas, but I didn't know they were "Prog" back then.

That would have been 1977, first year of college. I bowed to DSOTM as my gateway drug.

I started my "progressive" journey no more than 2 years ago. I've managed to add precisely 28 bands and artists into my "progressive" repertoire since, and still counting!
King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Rush, Jethro Tull, Camel, Yes, Van der Graaf Generator, ELP, Gentle Giant, Caravan, Dream Theatre

Haha yeah, I listened to Pink Floyd quite a lot without knowing what they were. They didn't fit into any other brand of rock I knew, so I looked them up and realized they were "progressive rock". Then followed Rush, Dream Theater, Genesis and so on.

Well, I started listening to real prog bands (not prog-related) when I was 15, in 2012, so I'm a total newbie here :D BTW, I've already listened to Queen a lot since 2009.

Probably around 2008, when I became a huge Rush fan. Styx, Yes, and Pink Floyd soon followed.
