Why this name?
I've been using this as my internet alias for about 5 years. I used to be a HUGE Metallica fan and loved Kirk Hammett. I later discovered Dream Theater and since then John Petrucci has been my main influence. I really liked both guitarists, so I just combined their names.
Do you play live?
No, I don't play any of this music live. I might eventually start a side project band to play my music, but for now I just play live with Threat Signal.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet allows your music to be distributed/heard for free! You could post your music on a site like this or on a forum, and many people all over the world will hear it. If your band is good then you have a much better chance of being heard because of the internet.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Of course. Many people consider signing with people like Roadrunner is "selling out".....I don't know why someone would turn an opportunity like that down. Promotion for your band is amazing, you get to go on amazing tours, your music gets distibuted in all major music stores. What more could you ask for!?
Your influences?
My main influences are Dream Theater, Meshuggah, Periphery, and TesseracT.
Favorite spot?
Not really sure yet....but, I would really like to play in Europe and Japan. Oh, and Winnipeg, Manitoba is pretty sweet too.
