"Marillion and Yes? Nah, I liked Motörhead": Inside the world of Devin Townsend
The great and good of progressive music give us a glimpse into their prog worlds - this month, Devin Townsend is up...
I live in Coquitlam, British Columbia.
Earliest prog memory?
I had a guitar teacher who gave me Marillion and Yes records, but I didn’t like ’em! I really liked Motörhead, you know?
First prog record bought?
Kilroy Was Here by Styx! I bought it from Discus Records at the Guildford Mall.
First prog gig you attended?
I guess it was Mr Bungle, but I preferred the support band, Grotus. They blew my mind!
Favourite piece of technology?
I’ve got a Vitamixer. It kicks ass. You can grind up anything. Aside from that, it has to be Pro-Tools.
What would your prog Mastermind subject be?
I don’t know anything! (laughs)
