Who are your influences and how have they shaped your bands’ sound?
After graduating from New York City’s THE JUILLIARD SCHOOL as a violin virtuoso and realizing that Classical music was DEAD and killed by non-virtuoso composers, I decided to UPDATE Classical music by bringing it into the future with modern popular music. I searched all styles of pop music and found rock and heavy metal music. I met Timothy Leary, famous Harvard psychology professor and mind-altering guru and we collaborated on the rock song "Right Brain Lover". Timothy Leary wrote the wild psychedelic lyrics and I composed the music and played electric violin. Timothy Leary and I recorded "Right Brain Lover" starring my electric violin virtuosity and rock singing and Leary rapping the lyrics with his inimitable voice. "Timothy Leary Papers" at The New York Public Library Archives & Manuscripts Features Timothy Leary & Kat Thomas' (The Great Kat) "RIGHT BRAIN LOVER" Song at http://archives.nypl.org/mss/18400#c759755.
AFTER THAT, The Great Kat decided to BRING my GENIUS to METAL and the “METAL MESSIAH” was born to SAVE ALL MUSIC!!!
