Even if you haven’t heard the classifying term prog-rock, you’ve likely heard the music. It’s the inventive style popularized by the likes of Yes, Rush, King Crimson, and more, and challenges the way we think about rock ‘n’ roll.

As the progressive name indicates, there’s a theme of evolution at play. Prog-rock is captivating because it’s always changing. The molten music genre is constantly picking fights with popular sounds and the status quo. That can translate to everything from fusing two unlikely musical styles or playing in an obscure time signature to incorporating weird instruments or stretching a track out to well over twenty minutes in length.

Perhaps the most ridiculed and reviled of all Rock and Roll related genres, Progressive Rock, or so-called Prog Rock, has often had an uneasy relationship with Rock and Roll audiences and a downright bad relationship with music critics. This chapter will explore the music, its ambitions, and the often negative reactions to those ambitions, reactions that have sometimes been as excessive as the music itself is said to be.

In under grad at UMASS Lowell, some of us put on a Rush tribute show, a song from almost album at the time. A video projected the album cover in the back and even some animation. The stage was set as a kind of living room where musicians that didn’t play on a song could sit and hang out while everyone else was rocking away. There were two drummers involved and one of us was going to take the early stuff and one the “later stuff.” Knowing the “early stuff” would include Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures, I demanded I be on that set! It was a total blast to finally dig into the songs with a real band and really try and replicate everything as best we could. In the program.
