Progrography

Elton John
Snigger if you want, but the man released some brilliant albums in the '70s, from Tumbleweed Connection to Rock of the Westies. As for whether or not he's prog, consider his body of work next to David Bowie or John Lennon. In fact, legend has it that he auditioned as lead vocalist for King Crimson and Gentle Giant. I know what you're thinking, and try not to think about it. Just be happy there's a benevolent God in the sky who watches over these things.
