As far as my musical taste goes, I like mainly rock and metal. Some of my favorite bands are Tool, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, A Perfect Circle, and Nirvana. They all serve as the inspiration for me and the music that I want to make. Alice In Chains in particular delivered some of the greatest music of all time in my opinion, and was incredibly evocative of my emotions and my desire to make rock music, especially now that most of those acts have lost members, broken up, or have aged. I recently saw a Tool show and was blown away at their amazing performance 32 years after they first formed as a band, and I think that they are one of the best groups around that still makes new music, and their technical ability is just staggering to where I think every member of their lineup is top of their class as well as giving their best effort in every performance. The rock scene is due to be reborn. Rock music has helped me get through all of the toughest moments in my life, and I think it's what a lot of people like me need after these past few years to express our fears, frustrations, confusion, and struggles in this world that has changed so quickly in such a short amount of time in such a bad way.
