    God, so many!

    Well, let's start with the obvious ones:
    King Crimson (favorite!)
    Emerson, Lake & Palmer
    Genesis

    And now for the lesser known ones:
    Gentle Giant
    Focus

    There are probably others, and may other Semi Prog bands that don't fully count (Queen, Asia, The Beatles), so these are my favorite full on Progressive Rock bands!

    Based on my knowledge of Prog Rock, I'd go with either Kansas or Jethro Tull as my favorite Prog Rock band. As I have mentioned before I'm just not much into Prog Rock.

    - Genesis
    - Pink Floyd
    - Marillion
    - Yes
    - Steven Wilson
    - Mike Oldfield
    - King Crimson
    - Peter Hammill/Van Der Graaf Generator

    - Difficult choice here! It could be Camel, Jethro Tull, Neal Morse/Transatlantic, Magma... I can't decide :pullhair:
