The only prog related thing my dad had in his collection at least that stood out for personally was "The Yes album"(He also had Santana and Mahavishnu Orchestra's "birds of fire" but those don't scream prog as much as YES does. LOL). But TYA was indeed a factor in me getting into prog. When YES hit with their 90125 thing it served as a reference point and I eventually discovered their back catalog. THat and these brothers who were at my camp in 1984 who were big YES fans as well as a cousin who was big into Genesis in particular.

Both Jim Garten and I were using self depreciating humour which exploits the infirmities of our elderly status for everyone's amusement i.e. we were making a joke at our own expenseIf you don't understand that then it's not a quantum leap to us believing you'd have to be told the stand up comedian is the guy 'facing the other way'Confused

It's not very funny though. It seems arrogant to me
No-one is claiming it's funny but yes, I wholeheartedly agree that old farts taking the piss out of themselves is the apex of arrogance.and would therefore apologise unreservedly on behalf of everyone over the age of say, 'sparkle in the eye' for having bruised your unripe sensibilities.




Actually, I am an arrogant old git

Of course the young know less than we do. Of course age bestows superiority...

...actually I suspect it may have been my crack against St James LaBrie which caused offense...

It should be no secret that age and treachery will always defeat youth and skill.

I discover prog in the internet, my parents like real bad music and my friends don't like prog, so, looking for bands that sounds like Pink Floyd, I started to search... and here I am :D

I'm surprised to see how many younger folks listening to the prog are there, I was always convinced prog listeners must be in their fourties or fifties nowadays! The world will never stop surprising.

Interesting demographics for sure. I understand where the main peak (45 to 55 years old) comes from: these are the folks who started buying their own records in the 1970s, when the genre's greatest bands like KC, Yes, Genesis, PF, ELP and Jethro Tull were at their absolute best, and their music was considered perfectly mainstream. 

But then there is the second(ary) peak, this time by the 25-year-olds, for whom prog wouldn't have been something that they naturally grew up with.
