Europe may have been the epicenter of progressive rock during the 1970s, but prog was certainly thriving in the American heartland as well

Art rock is a subgenre of rock music that generally reflects a challenging or avant-garde approach to rock, or which makes use of modernist, experimental, or unconventional elements. Art rock aspires to elevate rock from entertainment to an artistic statement, opting for a more experimental and conceptual outlook on music. Influences may be drawn from genres such as experimental rock, avant-garde music, classical music, and jazz.

King Crimson’s progressive rock often danced on the edge of the avant-garde, and nearly 40 years later, Fripp and King Crimson-including co-guitar genius Adrian Belew, who joined in 1981-continue to provoke audiences with their daring, offbeat brand of rock. The lick in Ex. 3 is classic Fripp, using heavy distortion and the neck pickup to create a fat, thick tone for notes that slide up and down the fretboard in an unorthodox manner. It’s not surprising that as progressive rock and heavy metal both took off in the 1970s, they would eventually cross over. Bands such as Jethro Tull, Mountain, Kansas, and Rush successfully mixed muscular guitar thump with the lighter keyboard, string, and acoustic textures of art rock, blurring the lines between hard, heavy, and progressive, as well as the line between prog rock and metal.
