Well I'd like to know if there are any young people such as myself that listen to prog.
You have to listen to atleast a few classic prog bands, it doesn't really count if you just listen to modern prog bands such as Tool ect..

So..How old are you?(if you're a prog fan)

By the way, i'm 14.

Well, I've been listening to it since I was born... my dad was always playing it.

Early favorites were ELP and Steve Hackett. I used to dance around to some of the instrumental ELP stuff when I was a little one.

Yeah, same thing... Though ELP would be replaced by Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull and Mike Oldfield (as far as you can call that prog).
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

16... I single handedly blame Dream Theater's Train of Thought for that.

Everytime I go into the guitar shop and ask for a G-String the shopkeeper always makes that TERRIBLE joke about it not being an underwear shop

So next time I go in I'm gonna ask for a thong

Yes was probably the first prog band I listened to and I think I was somewhere between 11-13 when I first heard their music.

wow, lucky you. I've been pretty much addicted to their music for the last 6 months or so. Satch is starting to wean me off of it though...
oops, sorry I thought you meant Dream Theater. I haven't heard alot of Yes yet. I'd like to though...

I was first born when I listened to Floyd 12 but got into real prog by listening to yessongs at 15

Guess it depends if you qualify Queensryche as prog. Got into them at about age 15 or so back when Rage for Order came out. But, I guess they're not exactly real 'prog' (depends who you ask I guess). First real prog I got into was 1987 or so when I heard Fates Warning. Borrowed a friends 'Awaken The Guardian' tape and then bought 'No Exit' when it came out in '87 or '88. Always liked Kansas and Yes songs, but when I was younger I never really realized they were progressive and didn't own any of their albums.

Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

15-16, maybe? I wasn't raised in a musical environment, nor were any of my friends prog rockers, so I had to discover it myself. I found a King Crimson record in my attic (god I love that guy), and have liked prog ever since. Check out 20th Century Schizoid Man.

I started around 13 with Pink Floyd, Yes, Jethro Tull, Dream Theater, and some other classic prog bands, got in a rut for about 2 years (now I'm 15), but now I'm really starting to expand my prog listening to Genesis, Gong, Marillion, Explosions in the Sky (and other Post-Rock)

Probably about 15 with Pink Floyd and Rush. Moved on to Radiohead and a little Mars Volta, Tool, and Dream Theater. (I'm 17 now.)
