I have some blues and jazz influence from a young age. I liked to blues artists like B.B. King and well as a jazz musician name Billy Holiday. If you do not know these people they are big numbers in music. I was saddened by B.B. King's death and the drama that ensued. Billy Holiday was a little beyond my day but none the less influential. Keep rocking in the free world.
I have been enthralled by this band since my "little" nephew turned me on to them. I love Mike Ness' and his style hits home. Reminds me of growing up and the pains and trials I had to go through. I am have since grew up a little bit...lol...but still like to reminisce. I think I should try to see them in concert too. I would dig a show.
