The Dillinger Escape Plan’s Ben Weinman Has an Online Course on How to Earn Money Making ‘Uncompromising Art’
If anyone knows how to be successful making absolutely batshit music, it’s Ben Weinman, the guitarist of the now defunct The Dillinger Escape Plan and Suicidal Tendencies. With so many bands out there sort of following in DEP’s footsteps in so many ways, the world’s best guitarist at taking a bump and soldiering on is sharing his knowledge on how to be successful while making “music that sounds like garbage cans falling down stairs to most people.”
In collaboration with Soundfly, Weinman’s course is titled The Business Of Uncompromising Art and pulls no punches on the realities of trying to forge a successful (aka lucrative) career out of making extreme music.
“This course teaches you how to stick to your guns, follow your values, create uncompromising art, and then sell that uncompromising art in a way that doesn’t suck the life out of you.”
Sounds like a worthwhile course for anyone looking to make it out there in the extreme metal scene. Hell, I’m sure some of his advice could work in any genre, really.
