Summary
The Show That Never Ends is the definitive story of the extraordinary rise and fall of progressive (zprogy) rock. Epitomized by such classic, chart-topping bands as Yes, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, and Emerson Lake & Palmer, along with such successors as Rush, Marillion, Asia, Styx, and Porcupine Tree, prog sold hundreds of millions of records. It brought into the mainstream concept albums, spaced-out cover art, crazy time signatures, multitrack recording, and stagecraft so bombastic it was spoofed in the classic movie This Is Spinal Tap. Weigel explains exactly what was zprogressivey about prog rock and how its complexity and experimentalism arose from such precursors as the Beach Boys{u2019} Pet Sounds and the Beatles{u2019} Sgt. Pepper. He traces prog's popularity from the massive success of Procol Harum's zWhiter Shade of Paley and the Moody Blues' zNights in White Satiny in 1967. He reveals how prog's best-selling, epochal albums were made, including The Dark Side of the Moon, Thick as a Brick, and Tubular Bells. And he explores the rise of new instruments into the prog mix, such as the synthesizer, flute, mellotron, and{u2015}famously{u2015}the double-neck guitar. The Show That Never Ends is filled with the candid reminiscences of prog{u2019}s celebrated musicians. It also features memorable portraits of the vital contributions of producers, empresarios, and technicians such as Richard Branson, Brian Eno, Ahmet Ertegun, and Bob Moog. --
Summary
Draws on inside access to key figures in a chronicle of progressive rock that shares behind-the-scenes stories about the chart-topping bands of the 1970s, the sounds of genres ranging from psychedelia to heavy metal and the inconsistent ways '70s rock has influenced culture, inspired satire and divided fans
