(Prog) Steven Wilson says he aims to get the audience onside by reminding them that he's "just an idiot." The prog hero says humility is the key to forming a bond with gig crowds and adds that he goes out of his way to remind them that he's just a regular guy.

Wilson tells Musicradar: "I'm just trying to highlight the fact that I'm no different to them, except the fact that my job happens to be - if you call it a job - writing and performing songs.

"I'll put on the best show I can, but I will always go out of my way to remind the audience that I'm just an idiot, basically. I do try to talk to the audience and I think it's important, when you're on stage. I mean, there's something inherently bizarre about the idea of being on stage in front of a couple of thousand people. So, between songs when I'm talking to the audience, I'm kind of just joking with them." Read more here.
