TR, although prog may not be doing as well, that still doesn't mean anything done by a DJ doesn't qualify as music. In that case, since synth pop is electronic, and Sweet Dreams Are Made of This has a violin (or cello? I'm not sure), so does that qualify as partially music?

Your kidding right?

Collect all the best prog bands in the world, put them in one theater for a weekend, and maybe sell out once a year. OK…. that's cool but hardly thriving.

I wish it wasn't true believe me.

On the other hand, someone shouts DJ! and you have 10,000 kids clambering to get into an electronic festival. Something has gone terrible wrong.
I got to see Steve Hackett once, front row seats. So close you could touch him, quite literally. In the middle of the show, he shook the hands of the fans up front. I heard he was big in South America, and can easily fill arena size concert venues there.

I remember I got to see Musical Box twice - loved them. At the same time they had an Aussie Pink Floyd cover band, but didn't go cause those tickets were fetching around $200. It's all about supple & demand. The Musical Box tickets didn't go for that much. Last show I went was Steve Morse & Joe Statriani (Satch headlined). So it was an arena size concert, but it practically sold out the venue.

I think of Morse and Satriani as rock guys, not so much progressive rock. Really good rock guys, but a great prog band should have a much more sophisticated rhythm section.

The Musical Box shows I have seen were fantastic... but they should be. Genesis did an album then toured that stuff either the same or the next year and moved on. They have been playing that stuff now for decades.

It's also much more challenging to write, compose, perform and record that stuff than to copy it with precision. But I still like to hear that music performed live like a symphony would treat a classical piece with respect.

That's it. I refuse to deal with you any more. You are the most annoying, goalpost-moving, subject-changing, points-avoiding person I have ever met. I will now just assume you're talking completely out of your arse and will ignore you.

Carry on.

I have yet to encounter a poster moaning about how music in general and/or their preferred genre is in peril who isn't.

Why is it just about anything interesting here is an argument?

Because it's a discussion forum.

Because conflict stimulates thought, while agreement doesn't.*

*This thread isn't that interesting though, since the OP conveniently ignores every point made by others, so it's more of a random scuffle than a real argument with actual arguments being played off against each other.

Actually, I've had some really interesting agreements throughout the past. However, people ended up agreeing on different reasons, so we taught each other something once we discussed them.
