Pink is a true musician in every sense and his sound is very old school with guitar-dominating rhythms.
He’s making his way to Minneapolis in September so I thought I would take a look into this artistic mind and see what I’m in store for.
His concept of music first, lyrics…well, sometime down the road of creation has given his live shows something unique in that you may never hear the same song in the same way in each show. “I can't settle on lyrics,” he tells L.A. Weekly. “like I'll always just want to change them. So I don't even bother with that process. I just want to have a spontaneous *CENSORED* of lyrics.”
Pink notes “The Cure” as one of his major influences. When creating a song, he goes into character like an actor would, and writes from that characters heart. He doesn’t focus on fame as he believes the public has a short attention span and wouldn’t care long enough to worry about fame.
Pink and his band Haunted Graffiti has cut nine albums with House Arrest/Lover Boy being his debut in 2002 and his latest Mature Themes being released this year.
