Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) on The MetalSucks Podcast #198
Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree — whose fifth solo album To the Bone comes out on August 18th — is our guest this week. We discuss how social media is anti-social, the abuse and criticism people give artists’ work without even listening to it, the loss of ambitious music and the fear of change in the mainstream, how the underground maintains the arts and much more.
Brandon and Pete discuss the tragedy of Chester Bennington, the disrespectful comments that followed, how being a fan shouldn’t give you license to be disrespectful, and the unanswerable questions we’re left with following a successful artist’s suicide.
