it is a classic article for sure! I wish there were other humorous Prog articles available. Cheers!

<span style="font-family: georgia, serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21.6875px;">Very bad sentence. I find it very stupid and offending. This is my coinclusion from that.</span>

I  like a coinclusion, followed by a notefusion.

My keyiboaird types a loit of extra "i"


24???? A heart attack? Omg somebody must have exposed him to wrong kind of music. People always say 'you are what you eat' well I say you are what you listen too music wise'

So listen to good music! It'll prolong your life

I came up with "The Age of the Machine". Ermm I don't think that method works.

The cover of Tormato might be awful, but it's nothing to do with a tornado, it's a TOR.
Tors are granite outcrops found on Dartmoor in south west England, as shown in the cover photo (just to the left of the man), the tallest of which is called YES TOR (presumably why they used it).
 
I'd probably agree to have that album cover on the list of bad covers, but I like (and own) most of the rest. What's wrong with Nursery Cryme? It reflects the lyrics pretty well.

After Wakeman had joined Yes for the second time, Rolling Stone was interviewing him re his return, GFTO, etc.
A fan, probably on acid, approached him while he was walking through an airport terminal and informed him he was Jesus Christ reincarnate, and that it was imperative that he consult with Rick to take advantage of this fact. Rick demurred politely, stepping into the limo and sitting next to Alan White.
"That guy told me he's Jesus Christ, Alan".
White obligingly looks out, sits back and rolls his eyes. "Is that a fact."
"Yeah. Looks nothing like his picture, does he?"

Why only male butts? Have they never heard of Eloy's "Colours"?

Until now I didn't know that the person who did KC's first cover died shortly after.  I guess I should have wondered why I never saw a similarly styled cover that might have belonged to the same artist.

My keyboard is worse then your, because my keyboard types long sequences of characters, grammatically wrong and without that meaning, which I want.  Confused
