Well as you probably guessed I'm still stuck in the 80's when it comes to music and everything that is associated with it. Rock and Roll should be about having fun and partying your life away, none of this doom and gloom shite that happened in the 90's.
I grew up listening to "new wave of British heavy metal" in the early 80's - UFO, Maiden, Def Leopard etc, along with all the 60's and 70's heavy rock before it eg Sabbath, Zep, Purple, Hendrix etc. As the early 80's became the late 80's I got into the Glam Metal scene of the time, Jovi, Poison, Skid Row, GnR, and I suppose that's where I've stayed ever since - hence the haircut! Those times where the most outrageous in Rock and Roll, everyone done everything to excess. Cool!
I like some modern day Rock, S.O.A.D., Puddle of Mudd and such, but to me most bands now are just heavy indie bands or boy bands that think their playing punk - how fu**ing sad!
My main influences when it comes to playing the guitar have to be Hendrix, Blackmoore, Gary Moore, Satriani and an old mate of mine Bob Lynas (local lad - White City/Clucking Bell). He used to blow my mind with all the technique and scales he knew, and this was when we were only 14! Nice one Dude!
My all time hero has to be Sebastian Bach, singer from Skid Row. He just doesn't give a damn about anything and he speaks his mind, even when most people wouldn't (e.g. the death of Kurt Cobain). Old Seb is Mr Rock and Roll - he doesn't give a f**k for trends and fashions - he believes in what he wants and has never sold out. I'm totally for that, there's nothing worse than sheep who follow the crowd because its the latest thing to do.
My other passion is Motorbikes - I've got a 1976 Streetfighter Z1000, which looks the nuts (see pic below) and has been in the Streetfighter magazine, and won numerous awards.
I've been in a few local bands before Break the Chain, mainly being Final Sunset and Black Rain who both had a good following. Thanks to all of you who have supported us throughout the years! The highlight with Final Sunset was probably playing in Paris representing Ramsgate, that was excellent! And with Black Rain, the highlights must of been playing at the Leas Cliffe Hall Folkestone, and numerous gigs for "The Rejects Brotherhood" MCC (see links page), Thanks you guys!
See you soon, Baz......
My Baby! (ahem......your baby no 2!.... Jax)
