Book Preview: "The Show That Never Ends: The Rise and Fall of Prog Rock"

For prog rock fans and critics alike, Weigel explores the development, evolution and endurance of progressive rock. Yes, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Jethro Tull are given their due, as the author explains exactly what was progressive and how it arose out of psychedelic and heavy metal music. Weigel’s story spans over five decades, with a narrative history that serves as an affirmation that prog rock was a “grand cultural detour” that made possible much of the music that is popular today.
