Ben Weinman on Soundfly
Ben Weinman is a songwriter, guitarist, film scorer, and manager best known for founding and playing in mathcore group The Dillinger Escape Plan. Together from 1996 to 2017, Dillinger became legendary for their complex music and wild shows.
After twenty years, and with Weinman the only remaining original member, Dillinger had become known as one of the most influential bands of this era, winning countless awards for their success as innovators and for being predominantly independent throughout the course of their career.
During this time Weinman was named one of SPIN Magazine’s “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and one of “The 20 Most Influential Metal Guitarists Of The Modern Era” by VH1. He's created remixes for numerous artists and performed and collaborated with artists such as NIN, System Of a Down, Suicidal Tendencies, Soundgarden, and The Prodigy to name a few. Ben has scored four motion pictures, written music for HBO, joined the band Suicidal Tendencies and formed a supergroup called Giraffe Tongue Orchestra (with members of Alice In Chains, Mastodon, The Mars Volta, and Zappa Plays Zappa). He’s also a voting member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and has managed and consulted Grammy award-wining artists.
Ben Weinman's online course, The Business of Uncompromising Art, is available now exclusively on Soundfly.
