In short, post, the reason why you play guitar, who got you into music what your bands influences are and why.

For me it was Nirvana who got me into music and subsequently learning the guitar

And my writing is influenced by; The XX, The Horrors,The Foals,My Bloody Valentine and Sonic youth.

So what are yours?

I am the biggest musical influence known to man.

There are many, but I think it was Poets of the Fall and Eagles who got me to play guitar. Now I only play death and black metal, lol.

LOL, for some reason the impression I get from you is like some wacky Frank Zappa of metal pulling pranks at the Grammys and telling crude jokes during interviews.
You are biggest musical influence?

Anyway, people who inspired me early on was Megadeth and Tool, now I barely listen to them.
Love, hate, joy, dreams, anger, happiness and passion.

Oh! And Zeppelin.

the only reason i started playing guitar was because my best friend played drums. We pretty much grew up together, been in various bands together. then he started drugs. i've not spoken to him in 4 whole years. its sad, he was the reason i started guitar.

Originally picked up guitar because of Trivium (DON'T JUDGE ME!!!!!). Now though my writing is influenced alot by Metallica, Mercyful Fate and Koji Kondo (yes, the dude who writes the music for Zelda ).
