Cream with Eric Clapton. I would replace Floyd with ELP of those four.

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.

I would arguably say Emerson, Lake, and Palmer for a "Big 5" of prog. Personal taste, however, places Rush at the top of the heap for me. Even though I really consider them progressive hard rock. But I digress.
