This.

Have to say that thinking about it I’m not really sure where the “fantasy” thing comes from re Yes. Jon has openly admitted he uses words for their sound in context rather than their meaning, and in Yes themselves I can’t think of many songs that relate to fantasy. New Age hippyness, ok. 😉. I mean, The Gates of Delirium is supposedly based on Tolstoy!

Ah yes, I'm sure you're right. I'm not that well-versed in matters Yes, to be honest, but the point still stands in regards to people's perception of them and whatever bands might have more of an actual fantasy slant. I suppose in all fairness Rick Wakeman didn't really help ward off that image what with the cape and the Arthur stuff.

I always think bands I've never listened to are a bit similar to foods I've never tried, but I know I don't like.

When I have finally tried them, I was right all along.

Example: Beetroot. 🤢

Ricky, Ricky, Ricky.....

You couldn't be more wrong. 😀

I hated beetroot as a kid and avoided it for years.

Was then forced to have some and loved it!

Beetroot is brilliant.

As are Yes, Genesis, King Crimson and Gentle Giant (IMHO)

Not so much ELP though - and i agree with the observations about Robert Fripp. New Standard Tuning my fat ar$e.....

Now I love beetroot, whether pickled, roasted, finely grated; however I don't like Yes.

But I'm not a fan of eels, either the band or the slimy water dwellers that multiplied after the Battle Of Jutland.

I'm a fan of hot food, and also like early Chilli Peppers (at least while they were still spicy).

Conversely, I've never been a fan of The Jam, but love a bit of the old confiture, especially damson. And while I'm not a fan of offal (apart from liver), I definitely like The Bad Brains...

I agree that the capes didn't help. 😀 I think this is the thing though, people's perception of them seems to often be more about their image than the actual content of their music.

Re Rick, everything he did was thoroughly tongue in cheek anyway. He - rightly - thought the King Arthur On Ice thing was hilarious, and a great way to wind up his critics.

Interesting... I don't like cucumber, but I sometimes quite like the taste of where cucumber has been (i.e. the after effects of when it's been removed from tuna & cucumber sandwich).

I don't like prog rock, 'British blues' from any period*, or Bruce Springsteen.

 

* except some early 'stones - little red rooster etc.

What about the tv series?

Oh, not for me thanks. I don't quite fancy where that cucumber had been. 😬

Cucumber... or foil wrapped zucchini?

I only like beetroot if it's raw. The same goes for courgette.
