For guitar I've always been influenced by John Frusciante, Jimmy Nolen, Jerry Garcia, and other jammier/funky guitarists.

On drums QuestLove from the Roots and Airto Moreira are my biggest influences.

As for vocals, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Nick Drake, and Barry White have taught me a lot.

Today I was improving on piano on noticed I was gravitating towards a Thelonious Monk-inspired sound. I guess that means he would be an influence. I feel kind of ridiculous saying that though considering I'm such a **** musician.

That's why you aim high, and kill your self to attempt to achieve. Thelonious is an amazing place to aim. I mean, I'm a keyboardist, and I listen to a lot of Liszt, Scarlatti, and Rachmaninov. Can I play as well as those three? **** no, but it doesn't stop me from exposing myself to as much as I possibly can, and noodling around as much as my time allows me.

Because I am a 7 year drummer my influences are definitely Neil Peart, John Bonham and Jimmy Sullivan.I also have started the bass guitar recently after seeing Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rush play. So, Geddy Lee and Flea are also large influences in my life. My top music influence is of course John Lennon. Not only is he an amazing musician, but he made a big difference in the world with his Peace act.

I was influenced by Erkin Koray/Orhan Gencebay to start playing the Turkish Saz.

Erkin Koray was one of the first real Turkish rockstars. He plays sik riffs on electric guitar, and crazy mad riffs on the electric Saz, a bit different to the traditional style.

Orhan Gencebay is a traditional Turkish artist, virtuoso and master of the Saz.

Also Jimmy Page cos I dig his style man.

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Dr. Know are probably my biggest influences, guitar wise.
