- the angst and swagger of artists like MC5, The Who, The Clash, Howlin' Wolf, The Rolling Stones, Oasis, The Stooges, Tom Waits
-the soul and pulse of artists such as The Four Tops, Sly & The Family Stone, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson
-the earnestness of Neil Yong, Elliott Smith, Simon & Garfunkle, The Cure
-And the sass and sense of humor of bands like Supergrass, T. Rex, David Bowie

...And wield them into a new sound that forges ahead while still paying homage to the traditions of the greats.
