All this time I thought I liked classic rock, but it turns out that it is actually progressive rock that I enjoy. I had no idea that classification even existed.

It's good to have that classification known. You never know when you might be asked "So, what kind of music do you enjoy?"

i'm not one for a lot of labels, but in my book, prog rock is a subgroup of classic rock.

maybe your brain is shrinking with age.

@Rockhead,
Could be. I have been listening to a group out of Sweden called Flower Kings lately. I also enjoy old Marillion during the Fish years and old Genesis during the Gabriel years. A friend mentioned that it was ProgRock and I looked at him like he was insane. A little research on the web and Whammo! Turns out I like Progressive Rock.

I was stunned to be labeled.

Don't feel bad. I got the reference to B&B.

@Diest TKO,
Ha, thanks.
The way McG put his declaration out there with nary an explanation or example kind of reminded me of B&B.

Prog rock isn't necessarily a subgroup of classic rock. Prog rock started back in the day, but there are contemporary bands that are classifiable as prog rock.

Prog rock for the 21st Century:

@InfraBlue,
Progressive rock developed from late 1960s psychedelic rock, as part of a wide-ranging tendency in rock music of this era to draw inspiration from ever more diverse influences. The first decade of the 2000s were also the years when progressive rock gained more popularity in eastern Europe, especially in Russia, where the InProg festival gained popularity and bands like Little Tragedies, EXIT project, Kostarev Group and Disen Gage reached major success in the Russian rock scene and were noted outside Russia.
