I Don't care as long as there is music to be played, I want to take part in playing it. I am not a dramatic musician, I go with the flow, Band drama, I don't choose sides I just want to play. There is so much bullshit out there and its not worth ruining something everyone cares about over. So lets just pick up our instruments and let go all the worlds problems and lose it all in the music because when you are playing that is all that matters. I don't have any specific influences, Im not the greatest musician but I try my hardest, I keep my riffs simple with complicated strumming patterns or scale based solo's. Like I said, lets just play. I love playing with unusual instruments as well, anything new is amazing.
