Also busts his ass. He played 150 shows last year. You figure in travel time and that means he was basically touring for the whole year.
A quick setlist.fm search has Skrillex as #1 in most shows of 2011.

Obviously this doesn't include really small acts or other DJs who don't necessarily have "sets" but still.

What's more shocking to me is that someone, at one time gave From First to Last a $3.5 million dollar deal.
That is really shocking.

I think his style of music is complete garbage but I respect his hard work and dedication and a congratulations is well deserved to him.

I gotta give it him though. I've followed his music career for a very long time - about eight years now. And he truly did work hard at every single thing he did. He's a sincere young man who has yet to let fame get the best of him. He doesn't sell the rights to his music to any product who comes knocking and he really does seem to do it just for the fun.
Whether or not people enjoy his hybrid brand of dub-step, you've got to admit that he really did earn every penny of his success.
Congrats, Sonny.

PS. Throw FFTL a couple of bones. I really want another album from them :P

When you can make most of your music while on the bus, why the Hell not? He has the perfect system.

This surprises me considering BMTH only did shows for half of last year.

I think he deserves the money he gets, he's really good at what he does — only question I have is: where are we going to end? Why are bands being so ignored? What's wrong? How could we get to the point where people would rather see a dj instead of a hard working band?

I don't like his music at all but his interview on Pitchfork made him seem like a very down to earth guy

Still, I'll never forget how god awful his set was on the AP tour back in 07 or 08 where he was just "Sonny"

Because electronic music is being accepted by the mainstream. Mainstream is what sells. Doesn't matter how hard a band works. If they don't get on the radio there isn't a whole lot more they can go up.
