An old neighbour of mine , about 20 yrs ago we used to jam and I loved his clean simple sliding scale work. A bit like the scale work behind ' lyin eyes '.Doesn't necessarily have to be a professional musician.

Guitar wise, I have never been drawn to lead work. I love rhythm guitar so a lot of my influences played (IMO) that important role.

James Hetfield, Scott Ian, Kurt Goedhart, Malcolm Young, Johnny Ramone and Nancy Wilson all have some influence in my playing. Out of them all you can hear more of Hetfield and Ian's influence in my style.

Drumming, going to be a couple of what people would call cliche drummers.

Pete Sandoval, Jimmy Kyle, Charlie Benante, Ben Hall and John Bonham definitely influenced me to hop behind a kit. Though I haven't been playing long and have had massive breaks between. Drumming is one of my favourite things to do.

Bass was the very first instrument I ever picked up and I must say if it was not for the likes of Roger Waters, Cliff Burton and John Paul Jones I probably never would.

Last of all is my vocals. I'm not entirely a "clean" vocalist. I draw a lot of influence from Chuck Schuldiner, whenever that man screamed or growled he sounded absolutely tortured and it sucked me in instantly. On the other end of the spectrum it would be Clint Boge from The Butterfly Effect and Dax Riggs ex-Acid Bath. Both vocalist possess amazing range and captivating voices. I practice my vocals probably more than anything else at this point in time.

The Beatles - Paul McCartney is a big influence on my bass playing, and the pop element of their songwriting comes through in mine a lot.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - I learned to slap by watching a video of Flea demonstrating it, and he was one of the reasons I became okay with playing bass.

Nirvana - They helped the songs I write be more heavy and in your face.

Weezer - Partially influenced the pop element of my song writing, along with The Beatles, and the sheer amount of music Rivers Cuomo writes inspired me to be more productive.

I had such high hopes for Weezer, i thought they were gonna pick up where The Pixies left off but they didn't.

but though they fell short, they did influence me a little. especially the songs 'Say it ain't so' and 'Susanne'

I was listening to The Pop Group's Y the other day and I kind of realized how much my style has been influenced by Garetg Seeger. I've diversified a little bit by now, but three years ago I could have started a pretty good Pop Group cover band.

Jun Senoue.


Jun was the first artist who's work i heard (his work on Sonic 3 in 1994).

after i heard Crush 40 in Sonic Adventure i began thinking about picking up the guitar.

though, i wouldn't actually get round to picking a guitar up until 2004.

but, yeah. he's my main inspiration.
