My influences... would have to be Audioslave and A7X. Wierd mix? You bet'cha. Audioslave was a one of a kind band for me, they were absolutely epic. Tom Morello is probably the most innovative guitarist I've ever known, and Chris Cornell is a great singer. A7X because they're a very constructed rock band, and they still know how to have fun. Duets are very great too, it takes real skill to play together in harmony.
