Hahahaha ... love that!

""""
 
As I said before, the thing that is hard is to have people understand, is ... history has shown us that ALL artistic scenes have been about "the difference" ... "something else" ... so wether something has a different this or that on the front or the back should not be any different than the tshirt you wear to sleep and the tshirt you wear to work, or whatever ... it's not worthy of the discussion!
 
You are not sitting here and criticizing Beethove because his ending on Eroica was leftist and the beginning was rightist ... and that is what you are not seeing ... I'm transposing on PURPOSE, so one can see the parallel ... that the perspective on the music is not ... the preferred way to see history in the making ... in music!
 
A lot of the posts, and it's possible that what I say does not sound right, are almost another question based on principles that have nothing to do with the "progressive" or "prog" ideas that started it all ... and somehow we forget all that when you want to discuss Stairway to Heaven again ... and pretty soon, that is PROG and the rest is sh*t! Is that what you want?


Ah no. I'm not wanting to discuss any of those matters, especially Lepplin.
I just want you to be happy and lighten up a bit. Art is always made to depress or anger someone.
Don't have to be so bombastic. Just enjoy music and art for what it is.

Go have a coke or something or treat yourself to a SCI-FI movie masterpiece.
Have fun man. ;)

Since I still haven't any child, I think my collection will go either to nephews/nieces, or to a library of my hometown.

That sums up my situation as well. All my music/books will be donated to libraries. Well, if they still exist in physical form!

I'm much more worried about where my guitar & bass collection will go!  I told Chris Hook (bassist for UK Yes trib band "Fragile") that I was going to be buried with this bass, and he asked me "Where are you going to be buried?"

Love the Brits!

Being a devout and confirmed atheist I hope they all go to Prog Heaven. Of course that means all Phil Collins solo albums will be in Prog Hell alongside the Richard Clayderman plays the Greatest Hits of Pink Floyd... and in the highly unlikely event that either place exists then providence would suggest that's were I'll be too.

I know that, but what are you going to do with all your stuff when you go to trade in that vehicle you're currently driving?

Good point. Must mull over.
