Re: Hiromi

I think the whole prog-bashing trend started as sour grapes on the part of 
kids who just didn't have the chops to play it.  As I recall, at the same 
time that prog was declared a dinosaur by these young turks virtuosity in 
general was poo-pooed just as much.

Not that there wasn't an awful lot of excess (and I spell excess E-L-P) 
rampant at the time!
