Q: What was your inspiration for the awesome song "facing the battle"? It totally rocks!
A: The music was inspired by Accept's "TV War" from the Russian Roulette album. The lyrics were initially inspired by the 1990-1991 war with Iraq (I wrote the song in this time period) and further inspired by struggles to improve and succeed as musicians, and that led to generalized inspiration from working through life's difficulties with determination & willingness to do the work required for as long as necessary to succeed. Thanks for the question! I'm glad you're enjoying the song.
