Who Is The Greatest Prog Band or Artist Of All Time?

Help Prog magazine make the ultimate call on the great prog bands and artists of all time...

The time has come, we have decided, to finally answer the question: who is the greatest prog band or artist of all time?

Should a classic band take the crown? Perhaps you're partial to Pink Floyd, crazy about King Crimson, cuckoo about Camel? Or maybe it's a solo artist that's wowed you the most: perhaps Peter Gabriel, Kate Bush or Steven Wilson are more deserving? Speaking about Wilson, what about more modern prog – perhaps Opeth, Anathema or Mastodon top your list?

Now is the chance for Prog readers to have their say as we compile the ultimate list of the 100 Greatest Prog Bands and Artists of all time.

Re: Who Is The Greatest Prog Band or Artist Of All Time?

Have you noticed that every followup posting has suggested British* bands? Is Prog by its definition British? That would leave out some Italian, French, German, Dutch, American, Canadian, etc. Do any rise to the Top 10? Maybe Frank Zappa - is he prog?

Does Prog generally imply a classical bent, rather than jazz? What about bands that pushed the boundaries, like Roxy Music and Talking Heads, can they be considered Prog?

*I should say, primarily and foundationally British. Obviously, some bands have had members from other countries (Adrian Belew in KC, for instance).

Pink Floyd all the way. Pink Floyd transcends the genre but they mastered it as well.

Focus would easily make my top 10 prog bands.
