Steve Brooks: Pride

Steve Brooks, guitarist and vocalist for melodic stoner rockers Torche, is one of the few out gay musicians in the world of metal. And he brings his unique perspective to bear on this handmade Pride playlist, which is practically a who’s who of queer rock: Queen, Judas Priest, Joan Jett, The Magnetic Fields, Hüsker Dü. “I’ll never forget the past, and no one should,” Brooks tells Apple Music. “Our diversity inspires me and I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished due to the Pride movement. Come out—it’s liberating.”
