Lode Progressive Rock (284 comments)

I guess there must be many other geeks out there who are also into progressive rock...?

Among other rockers I noticed that the proggers are usually seen as the "geeks of rock" because we're so "detailistic" (does this word exist in English?), always going for complex, technical music.

Ends up hapenning that being a computer geek I feel the same when "normal" people refer to prog rockers as to when they refer to computer geeks...

Any other proggers out there to share a view?
