Ron DeChant [Pt. 2]: Refining the Starset Trajectory
Ron DeChant (Starset) joins Benny, Siobhán, and Cory once again to discuss the incredible band Rammstein and their massive tour production, the early days of Starset and the drive that Dustin and the band had to make Starset a reality, and the current world of music marketing and where people are finding music these days. We dive more into Starset's latest tour and how much of this tour was really made DIY by the members themselves, as well as the implications for the future of music by bypassing big companies like Live Nation and Ticketmaster.
