The Jonah Keri Podcast #31: Steven Hyden

Jonah Keri and Steven Hyden, music writer (formerly Grantland, soon to be Uproxx) and author of the new book “Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me: What Pop Music Rivalries Reveal About the Meaning of Life,” drop the mic about: topics that gain and lose relevance in the lag between writing and publishing a book; the definition of cool; LeBron vs. Steph Curry; Prince, David Bowie, Eric Clapton, and longevity in the music industry; choosing experiences such as concerts over assets such as music purchases; the new phenomenon of surprise albums and appointment album releases like Beyonce’s; why bands break up or stay together; merged bands like Prophets of Rage and Dead and Co.; feuds like Beatles vs. Stones, Tupac vs. Biggie, Drake vs. Meek Mill; whether misery and self-destruction are necessary to make great music; fame as credibility; what constitutes controversy; the Tragically Hip’s final tour in response to Gord Downie’s terminal brain cancer; the demise and legacy of Grantland; and Steve’s Life Tip.
