Bill Wyman took 23 years before he released a new album under his own name. In between he has: left the band he co-founded - the Rolling Stones after all; started the Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings project; composed film music; remarried; founded several restaurants; written books... What you do when you're a rock 'n' roll legend. And now the bass player and singer has just recorded a new solo album, "Back To Basics". And this one is once again dedicated to blues rock.
eclipsed: Your solo career doesn't seem to have been important to you for a long time, or why else have you waited so long with a new studio work under your own name?
"The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories)" is Steven Wilson's latest prank. With his phenomenal third solo album, the Brit immerses himself in the past to redefine his own future. And Porcupine Tree will not belong to this group in the foreseeable future, as he clarifies in a conversation with eclipsed. In contrast to the ominous raven in the title of his record, Steven Wilson willingly provides information about himself, his music (and other stories).
