    Yes, Genesis, Jethro Tull. No Marillion. Various others from 67 onwards. Made me want to blast out ELP but we don't have a turntable at the moment... :(

    :mad: Marillion are bestest group ever and I feel certainly qualify as prog rock - they had a concept album and 'Grendel' clocks in at 17 minutes - two criteria for a proper prog rock band

    I met Fish at Heathrow once. He seemed like a decent bloke. They all lived near me in Aylesbury and used to drink in my friends Pub.

    Marillion are probably singlehandedly responsible for every girl named Kayleigh. Possibly.

    Aw, that's a pity.

    When I saw them a few years ago I had to stand at the back of the venue as it was too loud for me... :lol:
