Thirty Days of Music, Day 7

Day 7: One band/singer you're ashamed to admit you like.

I fully see the need that there was for the year zero of punk back in the mid 70s, but prog at its best (and worst) exhibited some superb musicianship and soaring flights of imagination and whimsy. Here's a sample:

I feel the same. I like all kinds of things, and now that I'm not in high school anymore, I don't have any reason to be ashamed of my tastes.

Maybe tomorrow I'll start this music meme. I've enjoyed your entries so far.

I still have most of my Genesis albums, and King Crimson too.
