        Top three bands you like:

        Top three bands who have influenced you as a player:

        Besides metal what genres of music do you play?

        How did you first get started in music?

        Do you play any other instruments?

        Do you prefer to write your own stuff, or just learn other people's tunes?

        Favourite flashy guitar trick?

        You have a typical metal band (2 guitarists, singer, bassist, drummer). Who could you afford to have go AWOL and perform the gig without?

        You into the more modern cookie monster screaming thing that's going on in most metal these days?

        What's the most unmetal thing that you do?

          Great questions Man!

          Top 3 bands I like = I only get to pick three??? Judas Priest, Iced Earth, Shadows Fall these days.

          Top 3 bands of style influence =
          Slayer (pure speed and aggression), They wrote the book.
          Dokken,I know dokken isn't so METAL... but george's style and emphasis got me off when I was starting to find my sound.
          Metal Church, that chainsaw-chugga chugga and harmony minor.... man they got it right.


          Besides Metal, I like soft female singers... Jewel, Fleetwood Mac, the occasional country ballad, etc. I am fond of older country once in a while... but 98% of all that I ever listen to is Metal. Oh And I love James Taylor.

          1st got started in guitar by sneaking back into my grandmas back room where she kept her old country pickin guitar, I would play it and strum it and once she caught me back there and just sat me down and taught me a g-chord. From then on I was hooked, worked my ass off digging mesquite trees off my dads proprerty at $2 a stump to buy my first electric guitar and amp. Taught myself some ac-dc and had to have my cousin tune it for me whenever I could find him..... on into twisted sister, wasp, other easy metal bands and here we go...

          Other instruments= I can play a bass....sort of, but what guitarist can't right? No offense all you bass guru's.... I'm not that great at it. I can barely keep a beat on drums...

          I prefer to write my own stuff, but time constraints of being an adult really ruin that creative process ..... I learn other peoples stuff all the time. Trying to make myself better. I have written over a hundred songs easy, but haven't recorded anything in a couple years now. I have probably recorded about 30 songs.

          Favorite flashy guitar trick? Work the wah and delay and finger tap all over the place....... the kids really think thats cool???

          AWOL.... hmmm I have only ever played as a single guitarist, so the other guitar guy could go.... also my first gig was just myself and a drummer.... we rocked the house down! So it can be done..... ha ha ha..

          I don't mind cookie monster voice really, if the guitars are getting it done with good riffs, I can look past the cookie monster.
          However.... that being said, I really like the voice to be distorted because he is gripping his nuts and belting it out so hard that the mic can't handle it. Think Pantera, slipknot, ripperjones/Priest, etc. When I sing/scream, I crank that **** out so loud that it breaks up. Growling and snarling and belting out the pissed off accressive vocals IS part of Metal and what its about IMHO.
          Those guys with the vocal harmonizers and gurgle voices (ie cannible corpse, coal chamber etc).... they are cool to listen to but get old quickly.


          The most un-Metal thing I do?..... I make pancakes with little bits of love every sunday morning for my children before we go to church.

                Oh I have love for some of the hair metal bands, Lots!
                They looked so cool and so heavy back then, but they don't look so cool nor sound very heavy these days....

                Dokken, Stryper, Motley Crue, Skid Row, WASP (even Pantera did some big hair back before they grew nuts.) Loved a lot of that stuff! I still warm up to a bunch of Motley Crue Shout at the Devil stuff when I am tearing it up in the garage.


                Absolutely No love for the spandex scene though.... thats just gay... unless Steel Panther does it, then its tongue-in-cheek hilarious!

                As far as those high squealing sissy big hair kind of bands in make-up and whatnot.... I really hated them, Poison, firehouse, Warrant, Slaughter, I would have lined them up and shot them in the 80's.
                They were getting lumped in with the good bands who had big hair and that sucks for 80's metal......... They ruined it for everyone.
                When I was in 8th grade I bought a poison album from a kid just so I could burn it.... and that felt good.

                  Boxer briefs.....the ones with the long legs, not whitey-tighties......
                  because it wouldn't be polite of me to just let the junk hang on out everywhere now would it? Boxers might catch my junk on fire when I walk!

                            My standard Well question:


                            1. What's a band you're embarassed to admit to liking?


                            2. What's a band that you're not embarassed to admit to liking, but they fall in a completely different category than the stuff you normally listen to.

                            It either case, explain what they do that makes you like them, despite not being in the normal genre(s) you like.

                              1. Ace of base. I love the girls voice and the simple rhythms...it makes me wanna shake my butt. And believe me when I tell you I can NOT dance!

                              2. ABBA who doesn't like abba ....seriously. they have mad talent and cover so many styles.

                              Great questions bro. I was gonna answer Neil young haha.
