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!
