Topic: Permanent Prog Pictures Gallery Section
Posted By: Gerinski
Subject: Permanent Prog Pictures Gallery Section
Date Posted: January 10 2013 at 06:41
I thought that this must have been discussed before so I did a forum search on "Gallery" in the topic subject, but besides the obvious many threads about Shadow Gallery it returned only a couple of old threads proposing people to post pictures of Prog Bands.

Because the file manager has limited size, pictures in forum threads get eventually deleted or the thread sinks into oblivion.

Has it ever been considered to have a permanent section in PA for a Prog Pictures Gallery?

I guess that a concern might be having to constantly battle with copyrights? (people adding pictures without knowing that they are copyrighted and then having the copyright owner requesting the pic to be deleted or even claiming for compensations?).

It's a good idea - I like it. To avoid copywrong issues we could confine it to pictures taken by site members.
 
And my pic of Steve Hackett certainly uses up valuable space on my filemanager allocation and was probably seen by 3 people in total:

Nice pic indeed. The confinement to pics taken by members would be a real pity though. Can't the issue be worked around by some disclaimer saying that if any © owner wishes to have the pic removed he just has to say so? I think I have seen similar statements in other sites.

The idea came when I posted a couple of pics of the Tarkus 'creature' ELP used on stage on Richard (richardh)'s thread about Greg Lake's recent concert review. I know he is an ELP fan so I was surprised when he said that he had never seen a pic of the creature before.
We would never be able to share these kind of historically interesting pictures in that case. Few member were around with a camera in the classic Prog period (not to mention that cameras were often forbidden in the venues for the normal audience) so a lot of historical pictures would be missed and we would get a Gallery mainly full of only contemporary bands (nothing against them of course).

I hope space in server wouldn't be an issue? (plenty of websites with extensive galleries all over the place)

I don't know for others but in my case, knowing how the band looks (looked) like gives a more complete dimension when hearing their music. Sometimes I listen to a band and I have no idea how they looked like and I feel a sense of incompleteness.

Seeing as this seems to have become the permanent prog pictures thread, I've moved this to Prog Music Lounge, as that seems to be the best station. I've also stickied it, making it even more permanent.

That's nice Andy, but it's still a forum thread, because of the file manager size limit pictures posted here will not stay for very long Unhappy

Upload your pictures to a hosting site such as imgur if you're afraid of the size limit.

Thanks Andy, good to know, I thought one could only post pics from the file manager.

As I said the original idea for this thread came from posting some pictures of the Tarkus 'creature' which ELP featured on stage in the early 70's, so here they are for posterity Tongue

This must have been the first version, a rather poor rendition and the head looks to me more like a sweet and friendly kangaroo than a killer armadillo LOL



They developed a more refined version, the head and eyes looked more menacing, the side guns are also much better. This one was "driven" by a roadie concealed inside it, it released smoke and fired a charge of polystyrene snow. A pic of it releasing smoke, another one of the thing being repaired, and an article about it.







and to put an end to it, a Lego Tarkus Tongue

Could the chap with the dark glasses on the left be the late British DJ, Alan 'Fluff' Freeman?

Kansas' Steve Walsh circa 1977.
While on this side of the pond the keyboard wizards were wearing capes and horse-riding boots, in the States they were nearly naked, but the acrobatics were pretty much the same LOL

^ Hmmm ... I wonder what the story is behind this shot. How did those bands come together?

^ I've seen that pic captioned as 1973, but I think it's earlier. Genesis (and VdGG) had toured Italy with Le Orme before then, that's what secured them a deal with Charisma in '73.

I just looked it up in my "Genesis I Know What I Like" book and unfortunately it doesn't mention what Italian bands they toured with, but it says, "By February 1972, Van Der Graaf's Pawn Hearts was No. 1 there, and by April, when Genesis crossed over the Alps for their first seven-date Italian tour, Nursery Cryme was No. 4."  It also mentions a second Italian tour in Aug 1972.  

A couple of other fun facts from the book...

1)  "Watcher of the Skies" was written during the first Italian tour.  Banks saying he wrote the lyrics with Rutherford in Naples, "We were sitting out on top of this building, and it was a hot sunny day, and we were just looking out across a vast area of buildings and fields, and there wasn't a soul to be seen.  It looked like the whole population had just deserted the planet, and that's what 'Watcher of the Skies' is all about...an alien being coming to the planet and seeing it completely deserted."

2)  In March 1972, the top 5 albums on the Italian charts were:
1) Van Der Graaf - Pawn Hearts
2) PFM - Storia di un Minuto
3) ELP - Pictures at an Exhibition
4) Genesis - Nursery Cryme
5) King Crimson - Islands

Coffee time



Led Zeppelin had a dedicated plane too



Todd Rundgren as Venus in 1972, can you get any more glam than that? LOL



Queen in 1976, who would have said then that these same guys would release songs like Another One Bites The Dust and Radio Ga-Ga...
BTW, a sunburst Gibson Les Paul is standing behind Brian May, I think I never saw him playing one.

Bowie 1971, you could make a parachute out of those pants LOL



And another one from 1971, The Man Who Sold The World, those who have seen the movie Velvet Goldmine can easily make the link to that part of the story, at the concert just when he first meets Iggy Pop / Lou Reed.
