Aside from the obvious exceptions, and they know if I'm talking to them.

This thread got Magero and I to agree. That speaks volumes to the utter failure and asininity of this thread.

Yes they are. They are the pinnacles of prog. The prime examples. The definition of progressive. When I hear progressive, the first name that come to mind is Petrucci.

Really? For me, the first name that comes to mind is Fripp. Dream Theater is good, and they are progressive in the sense that their music is not trapped in the blues box..... but they have not kept pushing the boundaries forward like a King Crimson or ELP.

Somewhere, right now, Dweezil Zappa is crying.

I think Progressive is kind of a stupid term, like Indie Rock; they don't really mean anything. If progressive simply means pushing the boundaries of an established genre, that would qualify a lot of bands.
