8. Don't Eat The Yellow Snow - Butt-Out
I started playing music in the Boston area in the early
1980?s. While I was a student at music school I started to expand my musical
taste with the exciting arrival of punk and the new wave sound. Even though the
music that was influencing me at that time did not require a lot of technical
theory and music "know how", I related to the emotion and the new
boundries that this new music brought to the forefront.
Prior to that point I was influenced by the popular
music of that time but when I first went to a "Buzzcocks show I realized
that there was more to rock and roll than the rock and roll.
As a result I feel that I always have been growing as a
songwriter due to the fact that I have always felt that popular music of all
genre's came from one place and that was the blues.
When I heard the Stones...I heard the Blues. When I
heard the Ramones ...I heard the Blues...When I heard any popular music I always
hear the blues. And that is true to this day. I now realize that when I play my
guitar and write music ..I am always hearing the Blues.
