He's more a small scale touring act these days than a recording artist but one whose sound bites attract outsized attention. I personally haven't paid too much attention to him in recent years- aside from when he released Ringleader of the Tormentors a few years back.
Take the latest zinger that is attributed to him while in Colorado for a show (and if you're Sam Smith or Ed Sheerhan- take cover).:
"There are no bands or singers who become successful without overwhelming marketing,” he said. “There are no surprise success stories. Everything is stringently controlled, obvious and predictable and has exactly the same content. So, we are now in the era of marketed pop stars, which means that the labels fully control the charts, and consequently the public has lost interest. It’s very rare that a record label does something for the good of music. Thus we are force-fed such as Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, which at least means that things can’t possibly get any worse. It is sad, though. There’s no spontaneity now, and it all seems to be unsalvageable.”
