Prog Drum Map
Okay, obviously there's much more that could be here. I'm not even remotely saying this is it. This is just a brain storm. I said, "what can I think of off the top of my head" and this is what hit the page. I think it's interesting. I do think that Prog is to Rock what Fusion is to Jazz. Both Prog and Fusion sought to integrate multiple influences into a hybrid or aggregate with rock as a key element. Certainly there are phenomenal bands/drummers who are an integral part of the Progressive/Fusion movements that I have not mentioned. Again, this is just a brain storm, i.e. what comes to mind first. That's probably considerably influenced by my personal preferences.
