Influences? Well....tastes change over the years.
Major influences include barmaids, big men with bad attitudes, people with fuel efficient vehicles, shortwave radio, and Fridays.
Oh....musical influences! I get it
Well, as a kid I liked the British Invasion stuff like the Rolling Stones, etc. Seriously, its hard to grow up in a bedroom next door to drunken musician parties (which I did for awhile) without picking up some of their stuff too! I also got an opportunity to pick up on the Mexican radio stations while living in the trailer park in Scottsdale, Arizona for awhile.
Later, I worked on the campus radio station where I got an early exposure to some off the wall stuff like Atomic Rooster, The Good Rats, Velvet Underground, MC5, Deep Purple (early)....well you get the drift.
Military life first heavily exposed me to country music including Roger Miller, Hank Williams Sr. and Freedy Fender. Later opportunities led me down to the path to the Long Shot Band, where I stayed for awhile and played about 150 shows doing outlaw hillbilly music. With a songlist of over 300 songs, you either sank or swam.
In the wonderful age of ipod and satellite radio, the choices are more diverse. I'm currently listening to modern alternative rock on either satellite or local stations with side visits to modern and classic punk.
