Devin Townsend Responds to Brent Hinds’ Comments About Needing a Break

Some comments Mastodon guitarist Brent Hinds recently made about the relentless grind of his job as a touring musician — “The most brutal job I’ve ever had,” amongst some very not-nice things about the music industry — made the rounds this week, generating quite a bit of discussion about the modern realities of making a living as a musician.

Those comments caught the eye of Devin Townsend, who offered his own thoughts on Twitter (incorrectly attributed to MetalSucks, but thanks for the love, Dev!) and then engaged in a candid back-and-forth with several fans. It’s no surprise that Devin was sympathetic to Hinds’ situation, and in typical Devy fashion he added some of his own insight into the nuanced psychological aspects of the whole thing.

Read some of the most relevant portions of that discussion below, and click on Devin’s original tweet (top) for the whole thread.
