Who or what is used as inspiration for music?

Pete: "We each have our own musical backgrounds and inspirations. Mine own are classic rock and classical music."
Lane: "My inspirations are often books. There are so many great stories and I always wanted to use music to write our own 'book'.
What is the most difficult and what is the best part about being in a band?
Tyler: "It's always about creating. When you can enjoy the process nothing beats it. The most difficult would be trying to navigate the current waters of the Industry. For us, having a great sound and live show will guide us, we focus on that. "
Pete: "The most difficult part is the way one has to develop a way of becoming a “product”, so that you can gig and be noticed, he best for me is the creation of music with band mates!" Lane: "The most difficult for myself was before I had a band and having a vision and searching for people who believe in the vision and want to donate their own blood, sweat and tears."
