Forgive me if I try and avoid a long and possibly boring answer, but let's just say that I doubt that albums such as "Larks' Tongues in Aspic", "No Pussyfooting", "Spirit of Eden", or some pieces by J Coltrane, would have been at all possible had they been made by classically-trained musicians. BUT, let me be absolutely clear about one thing: I'm not suggesting that If you're a classically trained musician, you're necessarily doomed, BUT I do feel such type of training very often works against Music.

(please note I'm not really into prog rock, which is a 'genre' I mostly find very boring, often quite pretentious, pretty self-indulgent and generally seriously lacking substance, ie basically, not real music)
