It's gonna happen to us all weather we like it or not, but you can control some things to age gracefully just like prog has and does. :)

Prog is aging better than Chuck Norris right now.

Some things sound quite dated in prog. Marillion with the synthesisers for example, or electronic stuff like Tangerine Dream when as a kid I hear all kinds of electronic music out there today. I still listen to those sorts of bands though, and they're not as outdated as other bands/genres.

Yes and no about Tangerine Dream. A year ago I played Phaedra for a flatmate and he had no idea it was as old as the mid-1970s. Their digital phase from Force Majeure up to the mid-1980s, though, there's no mistaking for the product of any other time.

That said I've also encountered quite a few fans of electronic music who find TD too technologically primitive, or too closely rooted in Krautrock and modern classical to be "real" electronic music.

No not really, in every genre there is music that is timeless, and music that has dated, prog is no exception,   t for every band that has stood the test of time there is another that sounds bland and derivative.

I kinda feel like a lot of 70s music is pretty timeless. Might have something to do with the production. I personally at least feel that a lot of 80's music suffers from the use of early digital technology that really doesn't sound good today.

I don't really care if the music sound dated as long as I like it.

This is true.  There are great classics that stood the tests of time, and other pieces that few people remember now.  Of course, what "ages well" and what not is pretty much a subjective notion; one man's classic is another man's howler.

But I think that there is a good number of progressive rock pieces that have aged very well and continue to inspire young musicians into doing good music.
