Everything from Chuck Berry and 1950s rock 'n' roll, over The Beatles, The Stones, Dylan, Hendrix, and Motown, to 1990s heavy metal, alternative and independent music, from Einstürzende Neubauten over Slayer to Radiohead. Which doesn't mean that The Bleeding Outlaw will sound like any of these, of course.
Highly influenced by Karl Popper when I was a teenager, and so I'm not supporting one specific political party. In favor of a cooperative and collaborative Europe and of open borders, but highly suspicious of the lobby-driven monster the European Union has become. I can't support politicians who don't respect the youth, society, and the planet.
Freedom of speech and human rights are more valuable than copyright.
I know that most artists will disagree, but I don't care. I am against all kinds of censorships, and I strongly oppose the current EU copyright legislation, especially articles 15 and 17 (formerly known as articles 11 and 13).
As far as I know, I was the only artist in Luxembourg to openly oppose censorship in 2019, while most well-known musicians from our country either openly or secretly supported the new law, including the implied risks of censorship.
The internet is not my enemy.
I do not share the views of most musicians, and I will not blame Google, YouTube, Facebook, file sharing or the younger generations if my records won't sell. If an artist doesn't sell, then in most cases it's because the music is crap. Read my book on this subject if you'd like to know more about that philosophy:
GEMA / SACEM disclaimer
In order to physically publish music in some EU countries, an artist is legally forced to be registered and/or to register all works with a government-mandated collecting society and performance rights organization such as GEMA or SACEM for example.
Which means that I will be legally forced to cooperate with such organizations, but I do NOT share their views and I do NOT support their actions. It's quite the opposite in fact.
