Alan Sculley of The Detroit News spoke with Hoobastank singer-guitarist Doug Robb on the conflicting styles he had with guitarist Dan Estrin when the two formed the group. “When we first started, our styles musically were very, very different,” Robb says. “I didn’t really like what he played. He was way into John Frusciante of the (Red Hot) Chili Peppers and couldn’t get his foot off the wah-wah peddle if you paid him money. I was into Tool and Faith No More and this kind of heavier stuff. So the stuff I wrote was always really heavy, (and) the stuff that he wrote was always really funky.” Detnews.com has since removed the article.
