Influences

The whole wide world & THE OTHER SIDE YEA!!!
Gerhard began playing Bass, switched to guitar, no one could play rhythms the way he was hearing it. In the beginning listened to the likes of ‘Pretenders’, ‘Social D’, ‘The British Invasion: Drexy, Specials, Pet Shop B, Human League, Big Country, ‘The Church’, Neil Young, Tom P,‘The Clash’, ‘Johnny Cash’, ‘Ramones’& lot’s of others. People ask him who is the girl or girl’s u write, sing about? “She doesn’t exist” she’s the fantasy girlfriend that lives in his mind. He’s very opinionated, everything, but will listen to yours; He’ll listen to your interpretation of song, take it into consideration. (most of the time) Gerhard is a musical sponge; an emotional vampire you’re the inspiration for what he writes YEA!!!;
