I have a lot of respect for TWY dudes, but they're certainly not my heroes. If anything, I think it's almost gratifying to have such normal people making relatable, passionate music. It's like why people love Taylor Swift: she's "relatable" and writes her own songs.
Pretty much this.
I wouldn't say Soupy is my hero but I definitely love his mindset and what he is doing for the scene. He's just a regular guy and that's why I like him.
