There is no substitute for jamming and getting to know each other on the road.
The voices on the record, that was trying to treat my voice like guitar players treat guitar tones.
I was growing up listening to Queen. Freddie Mercury threw those incredible melodies into his songs.
I have a little history. I met Stone Temple Pilots, and their guitar player was a huge Extreme fan. Somewhere down the road, Extreme made its statement.
You have Extreme and Van Halen and the history that I have with other people I played with. There are some effects that will hopefully break that stereotype.
