"My main advice for up-and-coming musicians is to learn music, to know your way around your instrument musically. I spent a lot of years when I was younger ... I'm sort of an autodidact when it comes to music. I taught myself everything I know. I never had any lessons, and so consequently I went down a lot of wrong roads, and I wish I'd focused on music earlier than just trying to play along with a song with something. I wish I knew why the pieces fit. I know more now than I did then." - Steve Gomes of The Fabulous Thunderbirds

Cris: How do you write your songs?
Dyson of Baha Men: We pretty much just go at it. Sometimes we have tracks sent by producers and we sit down and have writing sessions with the writers in the band. Or we have jam sessions where we are just messing around with the instruments, creating different grooves and we freestyle out little hooks or a verse, come up with an idea and run with it.
