PROG OVER­LOAD!

Prog - - News -

Another stim­u­lat­ing read with Prog 79 this month, which once again proves that there is so much prog out there that it is dif­fi­cult for the av­er­age fan to keep up with it all. I’m not com­plain­ing, but prog as a genre takes in so many di­verse in­flu­ences, that in­evitably some are loved more than others.

I’ve been lis­ten­ing to your Prog Magazine Show on Team Rock Ra­dio which is hugely en­ter­tain­ing and en­light­en­ing and helps to nar­row down the new artists and ma­te­rial for fur­ther con­sid­er­a­tion. For that I am very grate­ful, but I have to ask: why only one hour per week? If one genre of mu­sic de­serves and per­haps ne­ces­si­tates more time, it’s prog!

Can I just add, Carl Palmer 2017’s Prog God Award is richly de­served, as any­one who saw him in his prime will tes­tify! I re­mem­ber see­ing ELP at Wem­b­ley back in the 70s and be­ing blown away by his sheer tal­ent and tech­ni­cal abil­ity. Prog’s great­est ever drum­mer? – prob­a­bly!

Keep up the good work.

Jerry Clark
