    The backstreet boys were actually the reason I started to like music. Their adaption to the new coming age in music made me love their music. Steve Jobs has also been an inspiration for my love of music. I've been listening to music since I've been about 2 years old. Imagine babies growing up these days, and growing to love different sorts of music. It just amazes me!

    I used to spend hours trying to tune my guitar to alternate scales to emulate Joni Mitchell. Never could do it, but I still think she's inspirational.

    Hands-down listening to Grover Washington Junior playing his sax was the thing that motivated me to play.

    Blink 182 is a band that got me into music for sure.

    I'd really like GarageBand for my iPhone 4S. I am desperately bored of my apps and need something new to keep myself entertained. I have never opened GarageBand on Mac because it is very complex to non-music people, like myself. I feel based on the app other people have and apple store demos I did, it looks very easy to use. That's why I'd like this app.

    For me blink 182 was popular in high school and lead me to pick up guitar, which I've now been playing for 11 years.

    It was Randy Rhodes, the guitarist for Ozzy that made me want to play guitar.

    At first, a friend of mine in 6th grade lent me Speak and Spell, Depeche Mode's first album, and been hooked ever since.

    My tastes evolved (not much really) to include, U2, Queen, Roxette (it was the '80s ) and several other groups.

    Then, listening to some classical music, and slow songs from my favorite groups, and my mom's insistence I studied piano, I got into keyboards for about 10 years.

    Van Halen - the first time I heard the first album I knew I had to learn to play guitar! That was a powerful moment.

    To me the artist that got me into music was Gordon Sumner, A.K.A. Sting. Along with The Police and Solo, he has inspired me most.

    I began playing the drums in 5th grade, back in 1983. Why the drums? I heard an amazing song, by what many here in the states consider a "one hit wonder"

    It was the intro to that "one hit" that did it, as well as this live New Year's Eve version, that solidified it for me. "In A Big Country" by Big Country, with Mark Brezeziki on drums.

    Stay Alive!
