Exclusive Video: Mikael Akerfeldt On Competition With Steven Wilson For Progressive Music Award
Friends and collaborators Mikael Akerfeldt and Steven Wilson are too close to let anything like the Progressive Music Awards come between them… aren’t they?
Well, that’s what it’s going to look like as a far as Opeth mainman Akerfledt is concerned.
They’re both nominated at tomorrow night’s inaugural event at London’s Kew Gardens, hosted by Newsnight presenter Gavin Esler.
In the exclusive video below, Akerfeldt has a laugh about how things might go if he loses and Wilson wins – and considers more seriously which award he’d be most pleased to take home.
