Controversial Quote From Steven Wilson

In a recent interview Steven Wilson said:

I’d rather hear Dave Gilmour playing one note and break my heart, than hearing Joe Satriani playing 300 notes and not touch me in any way at all.

I agree with that, but not fully. The only part I disagree with is “Joe Satriani”. I think he just picked the wrong guitarist.

And to those wondering if he really said that. Yep, he actually did…

I’ve said it before, I’m going to say it again, Music is art, not a competition.

New album out now, loaded with lots of prog.

Merely a Coincidence? I Don’t Think So

Last night I was quickly checking my Facebook feed before going to bed and a very familiar photo caught my attention. The picture was posted by my friend Alex Argento, the amazing sound engineer and keyboard player, the very same guy who mixed Solipsistic. The title of his post was “Here is where it began!”

The picture is him as a kid playing this red toy piano that I immediately recognized… because I had one exactly like it (mine was orange), and I have a picture playing it (kinda) too, so I thought why not share it with him and with all of you.

Alex pointed out that my hand was on the power button, ready to call it quits and move to another instrument. But hey, look at that left hand constantly playing the lowest C, trying to sound as heavy as possible.

This is how you properly do a Throwback Thursdays,not with a picture taken two weeks ago.
