Karin, I think you would enjoy my father's collection of LP's. He's a big prog rock nutter and has got about 13,500 LP's
I'd say about 60-70% is from the 60's, 25% from the 70's .
I'm afraid I'm your father's age, Martin.
But the point I make in this thread is that NOWADAYS as well, fantastic progrock is being made by young fellows - check out Porcupine Tree, Anathema, Riverside, Opeth
and the like.
If you won't check 'em out, just tell your dad!
Not at all he was loved, over here his newer albums have done better than some of his older albums, infact here ni England Springsteen never really made it BIG, sure he has his hardcore fans but nothing like what he is in USA
Its hard to explain this but Bruce is typical middle of the road American Rock and that has never really gone down thatwell over here not jsut Bruce but other artists/groups..... Prog rock was always bigger
Hey Ryan, I always enjoy seeing people contribute to this thread!
But then again, Bruce isn't in any way 'prog rock'... a good, well-earning artist but in no sense imaginable 'prog'.
A great songwriter though, reason enough why plenty of artists from all kinds of genres liked to make cover versions of his songs...
