"I have tried to listen to today's version of Prog and so far it leaves me cold - think Spock's Beard. Just loud and fast and hard to follow, even for a long-time aficionado, and not much memorable about it."

"I love prog, always have. Yes was a huge influence on my musical life. There is a huge amount of prog being written and performed now. A lot of it is more metal influenced than it used to be, bands like Kamelot. Then there are bands a bit more like…"

"I'm thinking in terms of Yes, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons, etc.  They created more what I would call "pieces" than songs.  Almost a classical approach to composition but in a rock style."

She has listened to some of my music and likes it a lot. We talked on the phone for a little bit, and she directed me to the Cup o'Joy coffee house in Green Bay. I contacted them and will be singing there this Friday night for one of their open mic nights. Way cool!
