2. "My own general thesis was somewhat to this effect: that Artists have worried the world by being wantonly, needlessly, and gratuitously progressive. Politicians have to be progressive; that is, they have to live in the future, because they know they have done nothing but evil in the past. But Artists, who have been right from the beginning of the world, who were, perhaps, the only people who were right even in the beginning of the world, decorating pottery or designing rude frescoes on the rock when other people were fighting or offering human sacrifice, they have no right to despise their own past."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
3. "Punk was sort of an angry stance against things that had happened just before, against the pop of glam rock, against progressive rock.

Author: Gary Kemp

6. "The music defied classification. If I had been writing areview of the show, I would have labeled it progressive,guitar-driven rock 'n' roll. But the guitars made sounds guitarsdidn't always make. Symphonic sounds. Sacred sounds.The music dug in so deep you didn't hear it so much as feelit, reminding me of a dream I used to have when I was a kid,where I would be standing on a street corner, I would jumpinto the air, flap my arms, and soar up into the sky.That's the only way I could describe the music.It was the sonic equivalent of flight."
Author: Tiffanie DeBartolo
