Happy Birthday, Peter Bardens

He would have been 63 today.

Something you may not know about Peter Bardens...Mick Fleetwood credits him for starting his music career.

Here's Camel's Never Let Go with Peter on keyboards and lead vocals:

I'm celebrating Peter's birthday in Bethlehem, PA at the NearFest prog rock festival.

My only question is if Peter Bardens was a trailblazer of progressive rock in the early seventies how can it still be called progressive rock today?
