Well, who really DOES change music then by your definition? Who, for example, has changed music in the last 20 years? Nirvana? N.W.A.? Metallica?

How can a progressive rock fan such as yourself deny the fact that Journey changed music?? The forces of tightly-structured melodic rock, combined with new wave, became the prevailing winds in the early 80's and clubbed disco and prog rock in their respective kneecaps. Journey, being at the fore of the AOR movement, can be held largely to blame or to thank, depending on your view.

Do I sense some bitterness that Journey, Foreigner, Boston and other "evil" forces might have been responsible for the downfall of the more over-achieving bands that you enjoy, Eric? Starcastle comes to mind...
