Trik Turner Quotes
Our songwriting process is not about everybody trying to conform to a hip-hop sound or a rock sound – some of my guitar players aren't even into hip hop, and that's fine. We like it like that.

Bling Bling Management is also sort of a joke. Brad and Randy, our managers, deal mainly in hip-hop.

I don’t think we are reinventing the wheel, but I think the lyrics are a big part of what sets us apart.
