A Dave Stewart è dedicato un approfondimento presentato nei giorni scorsi da Jacopo Costa al Progect 2021, quarto appuntamento internazionale di studi su progressive e metal, coordinato quest'anno virtualmente da Lori Burns presso l'Univeristà di Ottawa: Between Underground and Mainstream. The Evolution of Dave Stewart’s Musical Language Through the 1970s and the 1980s.

As the fourth gathering of the International Progect Network and the first to be held in North America, the aim of this conference is to unite scholars who conduct research on a wide diversity of progressive rock and metal styles from the 1960s to the present. The two musical strands—progressive rock and progressive metal—share common origins; however, from the 1980s onward, they evolved independently of one another. This conference will merge and deepen the scholarly understandings of these two musical genealogies and cast light upon their significant cultural attributes.
