Steven Wilson Loves Meeting Fans But Wary Of Online Comments

(Classic Rock) Steven Wilson has described how he has to always be on his toes when meeting fans while on tour. Wilson stars in the latest episode of FreqsTV's Ghosts Of The Road series.

And while he loves the 'meet and greet' sessions that are a part of modern touring, he says it's easy to ruin your reputation if you're not at your best all the time.

He says: "I don't want anyone to go away with this idea that I'm an a**hole. With the age of the internet, bad news travels fast. You can be nice as pie to 99 fans. And if you're a little bit short with that 100th fan, you've had a bad show or you've got a cold, he or she is the one that will go on the internet and say, 'Steve Wilson's such as a**hole.'

"Suddenly that goes viral. I'm aware of that and I've been a victim of that so I try to be what I need to be." Read more and watch the episode here.
