Today marks the 40th birthday of the one and only Brent Hinds! Now, even though fanzines are blacklabeled to elaborate only on the sentimental, I have to point out when posting about Brent’s birthday, we’re talking about an underrated, humble, and extraordinary musician who’s so hard to find these days, especially in both rock and metal music scenes (well, admitting that pop is merely an industry rather than art, and that the avant-jazz/noise scenes are doing pretty much well). Brent’s huge contributions to progressive metal, a genre that was becoming more of a generic output for some uninspired virtuosos who lacked the ingenuity, raw spirit, and sparkle of its 70’s Rock counterpart, with his crisp channeling of surf rock, psychedelia, and grind, as well his signature hybrid picking style and uncanny vocal lines have dramatically changed the course of events.
