After reading about several authors that used certain music to inspire them in their writing I started thinking about that. One group that really gets me thinking about the characters I'm writing about is Shinedown. It's not just their music, but also the lead singer and his charismatic, yet dark, persona. This is one of their earlier videos that really demonstrates what I'm talking about. The CD with this song on is in my CD player at least once a week or more.
