New Issue Of Prog On Sale Now

P79

Steven Wilson graces the front cover of the new issue of Prog. With new album To The Bone ruffling some feathers because of a more contemporary approach we ask progressive music’s biggest modern-day star if he’s ditched the prog for pop, why he’s so desperate to be acclaimed by the mainstream and what are the real musical influences behind his new (and still) progressive sounds.
