As a matter of fact, the first thing that piqued my interest in Pro-Pain, as far as auditioning for the guitar part, -was- I was such a fan of the Crumbsuckers. I heard the similarities right off the bat, although it is quite a leap -- I could still recognize the style of some of the riffs [between the two bands]. There are at least some imbedded characteristics. From the first time I heard it, I was a fan of Pro-Pain.
Wherever we play, we must attract a certain type of person, so that the people that do come to our shows are Pro-Pain fans. We've never been the flavor of the week; the people coming to our shows have our records and they are familiar with us. All around the world, I see more similarities than differences -- from the Germans to the people in the Czech Republic to places like Croatia. All over the place they seem to be there because they have a similar feel they get from the music.
