Q: hey man, great tunes, listen I wanted to ask you, what's your favorite band/artist/? Peace, Ron,
A: The Back Street Boys are the reason I started music Ron! All kidding aside, that's a hard question. I see myself more of a sponge when it comes to gaining influence. I tend to absorb certain things from certain artists. Some notable bands that I've been influenced by are The Beatles, Nirvana, The Band, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Nick Drake, Muddy Waters, CCR, Eric Clapton, Weezer, Wilco, METALLICA, Pantara, Anthrax, Joe Cocker, Bob Marley, Neil Young, .. mostly anything from the classic rock genre up until late 90's.. anything after the late 90's I feel is pretty much a mute point.
