If you like hard edge fusion, then check out Scott Henderson's band, VITAL TECH TONES. A 3 piece power trio. All great players, of course. Steve Smith on drums and Victor Wooten on bass. MINDBLOWING stuff!

I still love JETHRO TULL! Even now, they're producing some great albums. "Roots To Branches" is mega!

What about Master guitarist Allan Holdsworth? Now he's just in a league of his own. He played with GONG and UK too. He's still astonishes me every time I hear him. Pure genius.

Okay, GENESIS - Being a drummer myself, Chester Thompson and Phil Collins are by far the tightest drum duo I've ever heard. Listen to any of their duet playing and you just can't hear any "flamming" (due to being slightly out with each other). Their drum duets are phenomenal! Iain.

Try Steve Hackett - still producing new stuff. Hails from Genesis in the Era before they became more commercia.

Nice (Emmerson before he joined the pomp rock genre)

If you can fin it Refugee (The earlier one that was Patrick Moraz on Keyboards(Yes as well as solo) and two from Nice after they split)- and that oviously leads onto the Patrick Moraz solo efforts.

If you think that Collins / Thompson are tight you should try listening to some world music.

You might like to start with Doudou N'Diaye Rose the Drummers of Burundi or Zakir Hussain

I've been listening to Classical Indian tabla players for years! Zakir Hussain and Trilok Gurtu are excellent, although I have a cd where the great Buddy Rich plays with Master tabla player, Alla Rakha (Zakir's father). I only mentioned the Thompson/Collins duo as we were talking about Prog-rock. Tabla players would wipe the floor with most drummers! Their solos can last for up to 2 hours! The cd I mentioned is called, "RICH a la RAKHA", recorded 1968.

I bought the new RUSH DVD -"Live in Rio" and it's rekindled my love for this great band. They're just fantastic! I grew up listening to them, but lost touch with their music after "Presto". After having seen them again now, I think I'll be checking out the albums I missed.

What a band!

Stuff is weird, I commented on this foto yesterday and he was into Rush, and now I see this thread, anyways, I'm off to the pub. PS they are quite brilliant, been to see them several times, last time was last year at wembly arena, acoustics there are crap though.

Quite. All that tedious noodling and drum solos stretching unto the end of time (well, it seems that way sometimes!). A good dose of rock 'n' roll is prescibed by your doctor - if it can't be said in 2 1/2 minutes, why bother!

As much as I like Floyd (especially Syd Barrett stuff & DSOM) & Early Tull, I must agree with the sentiments about Punk - a set wonderful innovative bands spawned in rection to the awful self-indulgent guff of many prog rock bands - ELP spring to mind as particular offenders (although I did like Fanfare for the common man Smile Rick Wakeman's King Arthur? on Ice was a particuarly spectacular load of cack too. Loads of "prog rock" bands were great to start with but they all got too self-indulgent-the chaos of punk was brill!
See Bill Bailey's p*ss take on prog-rock - brill.
