Touring for nearly the past two and a half years, Drive A has done everything right in the attempt to dominate the rock scene. They may have a myspace and reverbnation, but the internet has nothing to do with Drive A’s success. The constant pounding of pavement with bands like Rise Against, Bullet for My Valentine, Four Year Strong, Set Your Goals, and Billy Talent (to name a few) is the basis for the growth of the bands’ ever emergent fan base around the United States and Canada. Gear Vault recently had the opportunity to interview guitarist Jason Nott of the tear-it-down rock band Drive A to gain a little more insight into what the road is like, what gear he plays, and where his inspiration comes from. Today we talk to Jason Nott from Tempe, Arizona where Drive A is the support for headliners Escape the Fate on the first leg of their tour. Read more

Brian Vodinh is one of the founding members of alternative metal band, 10 Years. He started off as the drummer for the band, but later switched to guitar. Some of his band members say he is a guitarist first, a drummer second.

Brian started taking guitar lessons at the age of 11 years old. He grew up around music as his father was a first-chair violinist in a symphony orchestra and his mother was a huge Elvis Presley fan. Brian says growing up with rock ‘n roll meets classical helped shaped his style.

Brian’s guitar influences growing up was bands like Deftones, Metallica, and Korn. Brians says you can hear a James Hetfield-style in his guitar playing, especially in his right hand attack. What helped him develop that style was his determination to learn Metallica songs, especially Master Of Puppets at the age of 13. See pictures of Brian Vodinh’s gear taken from the Carnival Of Madness Tour at the DTE Music Theatre in Clarkston Michigan.
