Default Who Would YOu Put as a Fifth Member of the Big 4 of Prog, Making Big 5?

The Big 4 Bands of Prog are Pink Floyd, King Crimson, Genesis, and Yes. Believe it or not, that's the common and official decisiuon from fans and the media, such as the big four of thrash metal is Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer, and the big four of grunge is Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. All official. But if you could add a fifth member and make it Big 5, who?

For me, it would be Kansas. I feel their albums are very underrated, and they've contributed a lot to the progressive rock fanbase and to hard rock in general. I love most of their 70's albums, including their live album Two for the Show. They've had a lot of nearly perfect works.

PLEASE NO REPLACING ANY ONE MEMBER.

First, I would remove Pink Floyd because they're a psychedelic band. Duh.

I would then replace them with Rush.

Then I would put Soft Machine just because of their awesomeness. I can't say much in the way of influence.

Source? I've only heard The Big Four applied as a term to thrash metal. Google searches don't seem to help your case either.
