I've always liked this (cool guitar solo)


but it's probably more pop than prog.

Everyone knows that music changed forever the day the Sex Pistols played in Manchester to a crowd that included Kurt Cobain, Lily Savage and the future members of 3 Colours Red. A young Eric Bristow went home and tore all his Genesis posters down - they were irrelevant now.
