Okay, kiddos, here it is--from another on-going thread--the BIG question: 

WTF happens to all this incredible music once you've passed on? 

Until now I have made no plans. I don't know anybody who'd want it--except . . . maybe . . . A ProgArchives Library and Resale Store???

Hm.  I have no idea.  My family will never listen to it.  My friends will never listen to it.  Even the people in my band probably won't listen to it.  I suppose I could donate it to the library, give it to my guitar teacher (he might listen to it) or have it buried with me.

^ And say, don't forget about virtual backup.

After
I die? My mother would sell it all ... except the music on my iCloud ... and buy she a football team ... and a Lear Jet. But if she died, it'd be picking

Before I die? I would sell it all ... except the music on my iCloud (unless it'd be possible when the time comes for me) ... and buy me a football team ... and a Lear Jet.

No, ... I'd donate it to guys like Steven Wilson, iamthemorning, and others so that they can sell it all and get the moneys.

I'm even thinking of selling the whole thing as a collection. It's like my Hot Wheels and hockey card collections they went a long time ago. I mean you grow out of things, move on. I still love music but I find anytime I have time for it is when I'm on the computer. So I just find something on youtube or play a CD.

You could bury it inside a lead container as a sort of time capsule, so that perhaps a civilization thousands of years in the future will discover it and learn how amazing the music on Earth once was (leave a player too with some batteries and instructions in case they are again a primitive culture not knowing electricity, which is highly likely to be the case).

There is a company in England who offer the service of melting your vinyl records and turning them into the coffin in which you are buried.  Unfortunately my Vinyl records all went to a charity shop many years ago.  I suppose when I'm dead my children will sell my CDs on ebay (or whatever the equivalent will be in the future).  I don't think they will interested in listening to any of them.

This has caused me a lot of worry.
 
As one who was never going to have children, and also being the only child of only children so having no known living relatives, it's not just my prog collection but my house, parrots, car, hi-fi and a very valuable collection of rare stamps that could be going to the Treasury if I'm not careful, which is why I made a will because they'd only squander it.
 
The stamps are going to a charity to help care for my parrots (assuming I die first), the car to a good friend who loves TVRs (unless I crash it first) and the house to a housing association - no problems there.
 
But my music collection (and my ex-partner's which I inherited when he passed away) amounts to over 2000 vinyls (about 60% prog) and a 100 or so CDs and I'd hate to see them all thrown away. I've left them to my local prog society so they can take any they want and sell the rest on fleabay for charity.

You'd be surprised how little I know! But I do love TVRs.
 
If you've ever seen that terrible John Travolta film Swordfish, the actual TVR Tuscan (W998 AFR) used in it resides in your country - near Brussels. I've met the owner (Pascal) and the car actually has been on my drive. The loudest car I've ever heard, by far - so loud that when I was following it, I couldn't even hear my own engine.

Sadly mine's just a Chimaera 4.5 - nothing flash. Own at least one TVR before you die.

'just a Chimaera nothing flash'... ha, I wish I could say something like that! Love them all but I guess that the Cerbera will always be my favourite (doesn't need to be the Speed 12 though Wink).
Sure I've seen Swordfish, the only thing I remember from that movie is the Tuscan LOL
It's so sad such an iconic car manufacturer went down Cry

btw I'm also an animal lover so I would love to take the package of TVR + parrots Big smile

Me and my best friend have agreed to merge our collections post-mortem. I'd hope to give it to one of my children, or his, if my children have bad music taste, but it really depends what happens in the next 30 years.

Although my parents never had great music taste, I still have a few records from them I love, particularly the Dire Straits and Supertramp ones, but when my dad passed, most of the records I got back were ones I bought him.

But for my rarer ones (signed copies, first editions etc), I'd want to find someone who truly loves the music first, and I'll do that during my lifetime.

Some of my band t-shirts that I grew out of I gave to charities, but due to the fact you aren't allowed to wear a shirt without knowing the music, I supplied a memory stick with each shirt with the band's music on it.

Great idea!!!. My daughter says she wants it, so I think it's settled, but in case there are some CDs she doesn't want, the library would be a good option, or maybe send it to a festival (Baja Prog maybe?) in a box, with a note " FREE please take as many as you want".

Awesome posts, everyone--the funny and the serious. Definitely like the idea of taking it all with me and using it--and building upon it--in the 'next' world. But then, I'm expecting the music will be even better there. No more Kronos Quartet playing Hendrix or ELP playing Copeland or John Tout playing Rachmaninoff:  A-ron, Rach and Jimi will be jamming together, right?

Local library can have all the CDs. My daughters, for some reason, are really into vinyl--plastering their homes with original album covers from my 70s collection! (Not the 100% virgin vinyl Jap presses or Mobile Fidelities, though. Those are treasures!)

Probably this.

Remember that music files that come with a license most will become unplayable after the licensee has died.
Any files with drm in them have self-destruction built into them.-
So this topic could only be about cd's, vinyl and such.

But actually my kids can have em and do what they want - hopefully listen to em but not all are going to appeal so they can work that out. Same thing happened with my dad. He was into country and I am not but I grabbed a few of the better albums and occasionally listen in memory of him. But his 12 string electric acoustic guitar was a really great thing that I was able to take and play and I always think of him when I do. He wouldnt have had it any other way. I hope my kids will listen to my collection and remember me as its part of me.

Tough question.
I got some prog friends, but they already bought the albums they like.
They know most of the albums that I own, because we let each other listen to our new music once or twice a year ( a tradition that exists since some 20 years).
But if they (or I) like something a lot, most of us tend to buy it.
So I don't know... towards family?
Maybe...

Hi,
 
I don't know ... and ... I don't know.
 
I would have liked to will it to a Smithsonian or the like, but they are not interested in other things and the American side of my progressive whatever, is probably too small to be worth anything.
 
IF, Prog Archives had a "library" for these things, I would give it to them!
 
I have, shared, everything I know and don't know with all of you. I have not been a selfish jerk picking up the girls under the name of art, and the music. I have done my best to help solidify the place, the time, the music, and its art.
 
If the rest of the wrold doesn't care ... so be it ... who am I to argue with all of you?
 
The only concern I have is the control of the top ten thing, and how it is not helping define and show the arts as well as it could. All the media owns the same thing they are trying to sell, and even people here can not get off the top ten bandwagon, to the point of making the artist, their pet dog and cat and slippers!
 
Art has lost its meaning in this generation ... and to me that is far scarier than the great bonfire that my music collection will create after I die!
 
No one that listens to metal, will still appreciate AD2, Can, Banco, Capability Brown, Duncan Brown, Carmen, and hundreds of others ... so ... like everyone else ... we will all die, and no one will know, or care, any better!
 
It's really like a ROSE ... it blooms when it does, and then dies! Some seeds remain and might help the plant rejuvenate itself next year ... and another girl in love will come and pluck it and put it in a glass of water to inspire her for another day or so ... and then the flower dies!
 
So do you, and all the music!
 
No sense being angry ... enjoy, appreciate the beauty, the heart and the love ... that it was intended with ... and for crying out loud stop worrying about one bad song that you think is the end of the world ... your world, maybe! But even that, will die, soon, my friend ... soon ... much too soon for all of us!
 
I am not Melmoth, the Wanderer!

I could not careless if there is an after life or not ... it's hard enough having to deal with the life of today, let alone supposed things in another world, or life!
 
Now you know why I have such a passion about all this art and music ... but it really is not because I think that it will no longer exist after I leave ... it is not for me to say, then, or be a part of ... but I can tell you this about the history of the arts ... no art has lasted, unless its lovers stood up and appreciated it to no end.
 
We're doing that ... just not enough!
 
If our children continue the battle ... fine. If they don't ... fine ... I did my part, and for that I will smile and say ... I love you ... and that's that!
 
All else is conjecture and not worth the discussion. It's not even about "belief".

Unfortunately I'm going for work and I'll have the opportunity to see only a little hill with an office and a hotel in the middle looking over a big motorway. Listening to music is the only thing I can do after work. For what I know Portugal has few prog bands but not bad at all. I don't know much more, but that's a country been oppressed by a very long dictatorship followed by a big recession and economical crisis, I wouldn't care much about arts in their shoes.

Tough to say, but probably to my family in the future, assuming they want it. I like to think someday I'll be able to share this wonderful music with my kids and they'll appreciate it like I did during the years of my life. Hard topic to think about though, not so much because it instigates a reflection on mortality (we all gotta go someday, after all), but mainly because of all the variables involved.

I hope someone will know and care who Helmut Koellen was many years from now, as his music means an incredible amount to me.

It doesn't matter much to me as I won't be listening to my music collection any longer. My wife will probably have a garage sale. Dead

Being a devout and confirmed atheist I hope they all go to Prog Heaven. Of course that means all Phil Collins solo albums will be in Prog Hell alongside the Richard Clayderman plays the Greatest Hits of Pink Floyd... and in the highly unlikely event that either place exists then providence would suggest that's were I'll be too.

I think I will donate mine to an ophanage or school of music for the less fortunate. Hopefully inspire the next great prog mind.

I'm much more worried about where my guitar & bass collection will go!  I told Chris Hook (bassist for UK Yes trib band "Fragile") that I was going to be buried with this bass, and he asked me "Where are you going to be buried?"

Love the Brits!

That sums up my situation as well. All my music/books will be donated to libraries. Well, if they still exist in physical form!

That's a good wife you got there. I guess you should give it to her. You know what they say, most woman live longer than men. Lol.

Ah no. I'm not wanting to discuss any of those matters, especially Lepplin.
I just want you to be happy and lighten up a bit. Art is always made to depress or anger someone.
Don't have to be so bombastic. Just enjoy music and art for what it is.

Go have a coke or something or treat yourself to a SCI-FI movie masterpiece.
Have fun man. ;)
