My band GYROJETS has been around for about 5 years now and I think a lot about the things that have influenced me. Some of these are old songs that for many years have made me want to start a band in the first place. I started going in order but then the list degenerated into all the influences that I wish I was talented enough to rip off. And finally, as always, I just ended up in Japan. This was a lot of fun and all I did was ask myself: What makes you pick up your guitar but also then inspires you to keep going back over and over even though it never feels like you've done your favorite artists justice?
