I recently interviewed Rowe for an upcoming feature in Guitar Player. Here are some sneak peeks from that interview:
"I only used two guitars on Freak — my ESP Eclipse and a Gibson Les Paul," says Rowe.
"Josh and I pretty much touch on everything when it comes to writing. He might have a riff or a vocal melody or something that he’ll come to me with, and I’ll help him expand on it, or vice versa. I would say if he does more of one thing, it’s obviously coming up with the full set of vocal melodies for a song. But other than that, we both do everything. Sometimes, I’ll come to him with a full song on guitar, and he’ll help me come up with layers for it. So it’s never really a set way when it comes to me and Josh. It’s always something different for every song."
"How I started playing guitar was that I was sitting in the car one day with my mom, and this stupid thought popped in my head like, 'You know, it would be kind of cool to play an instrument. I think maybe I’ll play guitar.' I don’t know where it came from, or why it popped in my head. I literally just told her, and she was like, 'Okay!' So I got a guitar, and then I started formulating my favorite guitar players and favorite bands. Metallica was my all-time favorite band coming up, and Kirk Hammett became my favorite guitar player for the longest time. But you know, I also loved Kiss, Slash, Eddie Van Halen, Dimebag Darrell, and so on. I was really into guitar players who were more focused on serving the song."
