Who has influenced me the most? BRITNEY SPEARS!! I sang oops I did it again to my little sister when i was 4, she was 2. She cried. From that day on, I never sang seriously in front of people again. That is an influence right?

Even though my main genre is metal it's the "soft genre people" that inspires me the most. People like Eric Clapton, Chuck Berry, Steve Vai (maybe not THAT soft) and people like Isaac Albeniz.

Paul Weller and Bruce Foxton from The Jam. Weller's affected my songwriting, and I've styled my bass-playing off of Foxton.

if i cut off your arms and legs
and wrap you in some fucked-up cocoon,
would you still look at me and say
"you can't catch what you can't see"
well i caught you honey,
like the clap sugar.
what do you think of that?

Paul Gilbert and Scott Henderson.
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt.
He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice.

Remember: A prudent question is one half of wisdom.

Probably Mike Einziger. He got me thinking about expanding my playing into more genres, such as jazz and funk and he has this thing about trying to use open strings, and actually making it work. I've tried to take that to heart, and I've used some of the chords he likes to use without meaning too.

Aweosme guitarist.

I masturbate while my parents are home anyway. Sometimes I invite everyone in the living room for a "family meeting", then spontaneusly whip it out and start beating it. I love family meetings.

The beatles for inspiration more than influence...i wish i could be influenced by them but it's almost impossible to capture their energy.

Actual influence on the music i try and make...Bowie and Dylan are probably the biggest. Smashing Pumpkins too, Libertines...
