A bloody sight better than me.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

Those were the days, before the interweb, when we didn't know the looks of our favorite bands.
Somehow I think Yes wouldn' t have achieved the same following as, say Pink Floyd if the rules were the same as today, when you have to have a. pretty face.
Gilmour vs Howe - anybody?  LOL

It looks like Howe and Keith Richards should have a battle of who looks the oldest. Lol
Man, I have a catcher's mit that looks younger. Wow.
Age is a bitch and we will all experience it hard someday except with regards to prog. It's timeless!!
How Transatlantic's Kaleidoscope beat IQ's The Road Of Bones in the Prog album of the year category at this years Prog awards (2014) is beyond me.

Regarding "Old Steve Howe"...

*sigh* we all grow old, don't we?  

The face in the water looks up,

And she shakes her head as if to say

That it's the last time you'll look like today.

Prog makes me feel young. When I get goosebumps from listening to my proggy favourites at that moment I'm ageless.

Oh the power of prog! The power of great music on the human body for that matter.
RUSH explain it very well with TIME STAND STILL.

I wonder sometimes if a timeless feeling is all that great (it kind of is, but I'm playing Devil's advocate here). What I mean is listening to something many years later you lose track of how truly innovative something was at the time it came out. Hot Rats was not the first Jazz Rock album, but it was awfully close. I somehow lose that feeling that a breakthrough has occurred with some things that have that sense of timelessness to them. ITCOCK seems very dated to me, but maybe that's helped it's recognition so many years later.

That one fart band with Ron Geesin and Roger Waters was fun also! ... and it was musical, too! Rather progressive sound wise since the putting it together was so clever and the sequences were so different, with so many jagged sounds kinda on top of each other.
 
Awesomely progressive!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

I think the music ages well even if the band members do not. It tends to age along with its listeners. When i went to the Yes CONCERT LAST YEAR, the auditorium was full of oldies like me but we got on well as a result.

Just about anything with a basic Moog lead sounds dated. I'm looking at you, Rick Wakeman

Prog is usually full of great melody which progresses through the ages
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

Prog doesn't even have a receding hair line yet. :)

Hi,
 
I was thinking that most music progressive anything ages ... about as well as you and I and all of us do!
 
We just don't like to admit it!
 
 
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

I Picture, if prog music were an actual person, it would be a man dressed like an immortal Greek God with a beard that would put Gandolf to shame. Just a thought. :)

Yes were not a bad looking group of guys when they were young--they haven't aged well---especially Howe---made me give up vegetarianism. LOL

Love the whole song "Ripples" from TOTT (Genesis).  Truer words were never spoken (as I compare my 54 year-old face & body to earlier versions...)
