"Man, I love Epiphone--you got that right?" said Hinds, "I play a lot of country music. I listen to a lot of nostalgic Django Reinhardt jazz, esoteric composers... I don't follow heavy metal or walk to the beat of the heavy-metal-drum society in any way. I don't do many interviews because I'm often taken out of context. Like when I say 'I don't like Heavy Metal.' I didn't mean that. I just mean the general populous of Heavy Metal is not my thing. But now look what you made me do (laughs)! Now I've said it again in another interview. You see what I mean?" Visit your Authorized Epiphone Dealer while supplies last.
