“…and in the end.”
That line from The Beatles comes to mind as I look to completing this amazing journey. After much contemplation, I’ve come to the conclusion; it is time for The Progressive Rock Files to sign-off.
It has been a wonderful experience writing about Progressive Rock music and I’ve gotten to know so many great musicians, promoters and fans over the past twenty years. I can’t say THANK YOU enough to everyone I’ve had the pleasure of being in touch with over these past two decades…but as The Birds sang…
To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
I plan to keep this site up for a little while, but I’m not sure if it will be renewed for another year or not…perhaps…and who knows I may change my mind and start up again…but for now…my work here is done.
There are some great Progressive Rock websites out there, ProgArchives and the Dutch Progressive Rock Pages come to mind, so I know the community will continue to be well served. As for me I look forward to simply being a fan…to be able to listen to my favorite music without having to analyze and dissect it…and perhaps to finally be able to listen to some of the classics without feeling I’m taking time away from the new material.
THANKS again to all of you who visited The Progressive Rock Files over the years…feel free to stay in touch…rest assured…I’m not going anywhere…
