Jonny B- i def gotta give it up fpr alot of my metal roots. Metallica(old shit only!), Megadeth, Helmet, Pro-Pain, Morbid Angel, Sepultura(before "roots"), Napalm Death, just a few of the bands i was into when i was like 9yrs old. When i got into the HXC scene its bands like Slapshot, Bad Brains, Mad Ball, Blood for Blood, 25 Ta Life, V.O.D, Black Flag, too many to name. of course without my pops i prolly would of never picked up a guitar so Thanx dad! aside from other bands i listen to i play my heart thats the real influence. Stay true, Stay up, Stay hard!
