Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto

Holy crap, Rodger Hodgson and Dennis DeYoung are on Canadian Idol performing Supertramp and Styx medleys, respectively. You may not know this, but I have a weak spot for the prog-rock hits of the 70's (and early 80's). It must have something to do with the nights I spent as a kid, scrunched down under my blankets, listening to a tiny transistor radio after my parents put me to bed. Don't know what compelled me, at age seven, to troll the airwaves in search of new sounds (something other than Raffi) but that's what I did every night until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer.

But, WTF Canadian Idol? Why Supertramp and Styx when the all-time best prog-rock band EVER was homegrown right here in Canada? Bring on the RUSH!!
