Meet the Band - Anoop

What first got you into music?

Mums Boney M and Abba music cassettes, which eventually led to deep purple/ Eminem etc to Pantera slipknot lamb of god.

Why did you choose to be a drummer over any other instrument? 

Coz punching people in the face is frowned upon lol, in school I used to come up

with beats on my desk and i found that it took me to a peaceful place, finding new beats became a sort of passion and then a five-piece acoustic kit found me :-)

Who inspires you as a drummer, and why?

Shannon Larkin (Drummer of Godsmack) unique versatile style of drumming, John Otto (LimpBizkit) clever and thought-provoking aggressive  drumming 

If you could achieve one thing with Linked Instincts, what would it be?

Sign a record label and tour all over the world. 

If for nothing just get drunk and play/make music. :-) , ideally, have fun.

Why should anyone come to watch Linked Instincts?

The blend of different styles of music and our sound, esp in our own comps surprises me. We are just fun-loving people and total entertainers on and off stage. Once you come to a gig you will no why :-)

Slayer Vs Slipknot, who do you prefer and why?

Slipknot: More relatable lyrics, but then Slaaaayerrrrr!!!! 

Oasis Vs Blur, who do you prefer and why?

Neither but Blur for woohoo!!

Rolling Stones Vs Queen, who do you prefer and why?

Queen, amazing songwriting skills.

Finally, Greenday Vs Offspring, who do you prefer and why?

Tough one, maybe both 

You have to pick the best band line up, who would the band have in it?

Corey Taylor (Slipknot): Vocals

Chris Adler( Ex Lamb of God): Drums

Wes Borland( Limp Bizkit): Guitars

Reginal Arvizu “ Fieldy’ (Korn): Bass

What is the most useless talent you have?

I can eat, and keep on doing that for hours.

Tell us about the best gig you have ever attended, who was the band? 

Korn 2012 Bangalore, India. Path of Totality Tour. 

Korn is my all-time fav band and seeing them live was a dream come true. A little embarrassed to say this but the moment they started playing “Here to stay”, my eyes started gushing fountains :-).

What do you think 2021 will look like for Linked Instincts?

It looks great  the way things are going but these are unprecedented times so fingers crossed 

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Any DJ who can bring some nu-metal effects to the music or somebody who can play the violin.

What is the best advice you’ve been given?

Don't wish for heaven, coz none of your friends is gonna be there.
