Ryan replied, "I learned a lot from him in terms of work ethic and musical training and rehearsal and working with other people and what to remember and concentrate on when performing . . . (my parents) also are just generally very supportive of the fact that I'm playing music. The rest of the band basically lived at my parents' house for our first two years of playing together."

 

  • Ryan added that his parents "definitely are influential in us being a band and getting where we have."
  • The drummer added that unlike many rock 'n' roll families, his has been "stable," adding, "There was never any pressure to do anything musical, only support."
