Don't know that book.

Macan wrote wot most consider the definative book on prog subculture, Rocking the Classics.

(He also put out a cd of his own instrumental music.)

Ever read Holm-Hudson's tome,   Progressive Rock Reconsidered?  Its on the history of prog and basically impossible to read.
A professor of Music Theory , the book reads just like that. Lots of rubbish, very intricate dissection & analysis. Basically just a springboard for him to show off what a big IQ he had.

He did a treatise sorta thing, I believe, dissecting I think it was ,Tales from Topograffdicked Oceans. Really, really going scholarly overboard. I betcha Anderson had a good laugh.
(Anderson's vague lyrics are open to all sorts of speculation , but really meaning was of little concern - he wrote for THE SOUND. This guy Holm-wotsit would go on and on what "total mass retain" and such  obviously meant to Anderson.

What the fuck do you mean by 'Don't know that book'? It's a seminal ELP tome, FFS. Call yourself a fan?

Look here.......

Wot you fink of Emerson,Lake & Powell lp?

Just another Howe-going-to-Asia type lp, or you find something worthy there.

Cozy Powell of course stellar drummmer. (His first band was an interesting one - forget it just now.)

See how my memory is going; 

I just had to look this up even though I heard, for the first time, a few of the tracks by ACE KEFFORD STAND.
This was the band Cozy Powell was basically first in. Get this:
Robert Plant and John Bonham, 
Tony Iommi, 
Dave Pegg, 
and Slade's vocalist ,Holder. 
The band was Young Blood. 
Ace Kefford (The Move vocalist/bassist) then joined and it became Ace Kefford Stand releasing singles and, by the time the lp came out in '69, some members had left to be replaced by the Bell brothers.
