Ian Anderson's favorite prog band
The August 2009 issue quoted Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull on his favorite progressive rock band, Gentle Giant.
"Not only were they simply a fantastic band, but they were so intense they could have massive arguments about the tiniest of musical minutiae. They represent the best and worst of the genre."
