    No love for brand X.

    I realise that a lot of you have an irrational hatred of Phil Collins but the man is quite possibly the greatest drummer of all time so STOP IT.

    FCUTA!

    At least two of us are defending him so calm down dear.

    Apocalypse in 9/8 = God's drumming.

    I'd love to see Orzic's live, not a band I listen to alot, but one that I always enjoy when I do. Bet they put on one hell of a show.

    Best prog gig I've ever seen (apart from Yes) is The Mars Volta when they curated the All Tomorrows Parties Nightmare Before Christmas in 05.... THREE hour set with no breaks, no pauses, no talking to the crowd.... just 3 hours of audio bliss - its the only gig I've ever been to where no one in the audience moved... the whole crowd were just standing there slack jawed for the entire set. Awesome

    I like Stuart Maconies Freak Zone on BBC6 Music .A very Pro-Prog program.

    An article on it pointed out how prog was still very much alive and booming especially in mainland Europe,due to the large ammount of classicly trained musicians about!

    The Enemy Chorus by The Earlies.I've touted on here before as great modern prog.

    Phil collins was a good drummer in his day but check out this Terry Bozzio vid (one of frank Zappa's drummers) This guy is technically the most disciplined and tightest drummer ever.

    Marillion are probably the band I've seen live more than other. Saw them at the forum I believe and the guys were hanging around the back before the gig. Spotted them when we were trying to find a parking space - knew it was them as Steve H was wearing that coat from the Dry Land video ;-)

    I think listening to Brave again is the answer to my thread about needing to hear something f***ing epic :-)

    Vai's work is hit and miss from a music fan's point of view though. Passion And Warfare is great, but the rest....:uhoh:

    Ecosse mentions Peter Gabriel. Get the Growing Up Live DVD. Fucking fantastic stuff. One of the best music DVDs on the market.

    I think it was something like Prog Rock Britannia, but there were a series of other films as well - check iPlayer on the BBC website (if you're not in the UK use something like hotspotshield)

    Here is the doc on iPlayer

    Hope this helps :)

    edit: also - I recommend Aphrodite's Child for some psyche/prog goodness - check out their Revelations-inspired album '666' (members included Vangelis and Demis Roussos)

    Yup, really good. The mental spinning stage and upside down race track are amazing, plus the arrangements of his songs are all pretty good. The a capella into to 'Mercy Street' is a goodun.

    I actually think that in that show, most of the studio versions are improved upon.

    When you can say that you know that you're watching a classic live performance.

    In Your Eyes is at least twenty times better than it's original version for example.

    And the original version was already great. :)

    Never really managed to make much headway with Rush. I tried quite a bit of stuff from different parts of their career: A Farewell to Kings, Permanent Waves, Grace Under Pressure, Hold Your Fire and Roll The Bones. The was some nice stuff in there, but nothing that ever really blew me away; it was just ok, and I drifted away from it. I think maybe it was Geddy Lee's vocal, which is rather an acquired taste.

    It's a little over four quid on Amazon MP3, it'd be rude not to give it a try at that price!

    I agree with your remark on Lee's vocals though ;-)

    Great to see the Marillion love in this thread.

    Even better to see last week that Fish had the all clear from his cancer scare.

    I saw him live in November, it's easily the best (small venue) gig I've been too, the man is awesome.
