530. Gentle Giant
The world of Progressive Rock brought forth many successful bands. Gentle Giant did have a devoted group of fans, a wide array of technical skills but for whatever reason never reached the commercial success of bands like Genesis, Yes or ELP. For years they always seemed on the cusp of a breakout and although that didn’t happen, many in Progressive Rock circles have always applauded Gentle Giant for their experimentation and skills. Of course, commercially successful Progressive Rock bands are struggling to crack the Hall, so the chances of Gentle Giant are far from gigantic at all.
