I'll be 43 in two months so for me it's the 1980's. Yes I do feel old but when I go to prog festivals most of the fans are either around my age or older so it's not that bad.

My first Prog Exposure happened at the end of the 80s (Yes, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater), although I only really started seriously getting into Prog in 2000. This had to do with growing up in Namibia and South Africa where one is not really exposed too much to prog. End of 1999 I moved to Germany and started blowing my meager salary on tons of CDs. Had to do a lot of catching up.

So you thought it was a fake genre? LOL

Kind of reminds me of something that happened about 12 years ago. I was showing my cousin a list of prog albums. Her then boyfriend(now husband)saw it and said "progressive rock?" "Is there such a thing?" My cousin said to him in response "I think so." Uh, no of course not. Progressive rock is just something I made up. I hired 170 people to make up names of albums by bands that don't really exist just so I could mess with you guys. LMAO!!! Big smileClapTongue

In late 2000's. When I started to listen to Queen, I've noticed that I enjoy more of their complex songs such as 'Innuendo' or 'Liar'. Then  I started to listen to other prog & art rock artists, such as Uriah Heep, Rainbow, then Bowie and finally I came to King Crimson. So finally I'm a proghead Smile

I turned 6 just before 2000 hit. I listened to some prog bands around 2004/ 2005, but I didn't really get into prog specifically until 2009.
And then 66 years before 2000, there were three cousins, seen in my avatar, but as the story goes they all died before prog rock was a thing.

I suspect I may be the oldest regular poster on here (61), but of course I stand to be corrected.
 
I started listening to prog in the mid/late 60s when bands like Traffic, Procul Harum and the Moodies were all the rage in my public school, to be followed later by BJH, King Crimson, Colosseum, Strawbs and ELP, amongst others.

That's actually the exact same for me. But I wasn't exposed to too much prog before around 2008, mainly just jazz and funk.

I'm from '66 and during the early 70's my home soundtrack was already full of prog played by my older brother and sisters so I grew up with Tarkus, Nursery Crime, Yes Album, DSOTM, Tommy, Renaissance etc (along with other classic rock of the period, Beatles, Stones, Lou Reed, Bowie, Purple etc). I started purchasing albums by myself around 1980.

Through my three older brothers I got into contact with prog at an early age: the 1970's, when I was still a kid.
I was fascinated by Procol Harum, Ekseption, Focus, ELP etc.
Started being an active prog lover from the mid-1980's.

This is quite close to my story, except I'm from '69, it was my dad instead of a brother, and I don't recall my dad ever owning an ELP record.

The 60s for me. It started with the Moodies' Days of Future Passed. Before that I was of course a staunch Beatles fan.

It has struck me that the devoted Beatles' fans all went with the Moodies, the Floyds and the rest of the so called prog bands, while the most devoted Stones' fans later prefered Led Zep, Purple and Sabbath.

Cool dad!  I'm the same age, but my dad listened to country music only.  Cry

I got into Rush in the mid-80s.  Other prog around '88 or '89.  Thank you Stone Trek!

My dad's 68 now, and also lives in Atlanta, and we still borrow each others' albums and stuff.  He's always been primarily a jazz buff (his jazz collection is legendary; too bad I'm not really into jazz), but he still likes the occasional prog thing.  He still likes Floyd, Crimson, and Camel, and likes buying all the new "Dave's Picks" Grateful Dead live releases.  He took me to my first concert in 1982, Camel on the Single Factor tour. 

I understand he'll be gone someday, probably in the distant future, and that will be a sad day for me.  But I also sometimes ponder the real possibility that he will leave me his collection in his will.  And I don't know where the hell I could keep all that stuff.

Like many others in the forties (born in 72)  I first got ino prog in the 80's, specifically Genesis opened the door.  I had a resurgance in the nineties when I discovered Dream Theater but ultimately in 2007 I rediscovered Dream Theater after a decade of electronica.  The Dream Theater discovery led me to Transatlantic which in turn led me to Spock's Beard and The Flower Kings which in turn led me to Porcupine Tree which led me to . . . . six years later.  I voted 80's per the initial instructions

I'm not sure if there was really a prog "scene" in the sixties but I figured I would put an option for sixties anyway in case some people(probably those with hearing aids and wheel chairs, just kidding, want to put that in there. Lots of psychedelic stuff was progressive so I suppose it's not too much of a stretch. Also some stuff was really more progressive than psych imo(early PF, Moody Blues, Soft Machine, The Nice etc).

I didn't mean to deliberately confuse anyone. It was sort of an afterthought to put in sixties and 2010's and didn't feel like changing it. If anyone wants I can open it up to multiple votes temporarily and you can change it(or add another decade since you can't take away what you already voted for).

I was born in 66. I was aware of some Prog in the 70s. I was vaguely aware of Selling England by the Pound and Wind & Wuthering from the radio and a friend of mine had and played me The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway when it first came out. I had a lot of friends who were into Rush (I grew up in the States just two hours from Toronto). But I entered high school in 1980, and it was then that I bought Abacab and then moved onward into Prog, listening many hours to the Lamb. I found out about a lot of Prog through an anthology of Rolling Stone reviews at a Walden's bookstore.

Not when I got in to prog, but I recall when my step-sister (older than me by 5 years) bought a cassette of what she called this "really strange album".  It was Abacab.

She also had a boyfriend who brought Yessongs (all 3 LPs) over and left it for a while.  (Along with 90125, of all things.)

I'm only a youngin on this site, well compared to most guys, Smile so it's only been so recently. I actually started off with a lot of Prog Metal, like DT of course, Protest the Hero, Between the Buried And Me, Meshuggah, etc. So that was around like ending of grade 8, beginning of grade 9; went to the classic from there on. I actually find my self appreciating those bands more now then I did then.

It's funny how so few people, so far anyway, got into prog in the 90's. In the eighties prog was pretty invisible for the most part although in reality the big named seventies bands such as Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd as well as Rush were all pretty big and also ELP(with the ELPowell lineup) to some degree. I think a lot of us who got into these bands in the eighties(including myself) just discovered these bands back catalogs and got into prog that way.

In the nineties prog was just starting to gain some momentum again but it was mainly limited to newsgroups and websites. In the 2000's there were social media sites like Myspace, Facebook and the increasing popularity of prog festivals such as Rosfest and Nearfest to help the genres visibility.

Please read!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:



Earlier someone mentioned they didn't vote for sixties because they didnt' see that option. I have since added a vote to the 1960's to honor that posters initial choice.

So now I would like to ask one person(only one) who did not yet vote who would vote for the seventies to not vote in order to have things equal. Please respond here if you would have voted for the seventies but didn't. Just one person. Thanks. I know it's a strange request but I want this to be as accurate and as fair as possible so please humor me. Smile

I got into Rush around 2008/09 that was when I was unaware of Progressive Rock's existence. In late 2011 I decided to listen to Yes, Genesis, and King Crimson that's when it started...

I have honoured your request, even though my dearest mother was only 4 in 1970.

In the 60s and 70s I didn't know I was into prog.LOL  I learnt that when I discovered this fantastic site.
So yeah, the internet is invaluable for spreading new music and that's probably why prog has become a sort of fashion these days.

My prog love affair started at the beginning = 1969 with ITCOTCK!  I never let this mistress go too far way as I put the cuffs on her! Or she put them on me? Wink

Really? I would have guessed the progression to be Stones to Bowie to Velvet Underground & New York Dolls to punk....

Well then I hope the person who posted above you didn't vote for the seventies. I say this because if your mother was 4 in 1970 then that means you weren't even born yet(probably not until the nineties). I think you misunderstood my request.Smile

No, not in my age group (the dinosaurs), we never even noticed the punk movement. LOL
And the Bowie fans were younger.

Let me guess. Your first prog album was Porcupine Tree's "deadwing." Wink That seems to be an album that helped catapault prog into the mainstream in the new millenium. It even made the top 200 album charts and was PT's first album to do so.

'76

My brother bought Kansas - Leftoverture on cassette because he liked the song Carry On Wayward Son. He didn't like the rest of the album, so the cassette quickly gathered dust, 'til I started listening to it. I think I eventually wore it out Smile

Sometime in '79 i started listening to Rush & Yes....

I suppose I was listening to 'prog' before I knew it was 'prog'.....1969 I guess.

Prog was the first type of music I got into as a kid, late 70's (5 years old), going through my father's vinyls... First band I loved was Pink Floyd.

In theory I could say the 60's and start a debate over what was "prog" before the actual genre existed but since I heard ITCOTCK for the first time in 1970 I selected the 1970's.  

And I think it is awesome that people are discovering prog in the 2010's!  Seven votes for the 2010's so far.  Cool!

I kind of stepped into it about 2008, but I didn't become serious about it until mid-2010 when I started listening to Pink Floyd.

I consider drone metal to be progressive...
