"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...

Where’s home?

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)
