Daughtry talks musical influences (including LIVE), craziest thing he ever done on tour with 3 Doors Down, and more

The Baltimore Media Blog did an interview with Chris of Daughtry and talked about various things including his musical influences, craziest thing he did on tour and more.

On musical influences Chris said:

“Rick Astley. ::both laugh:: When I was a kid, I remember when “Never Gonna Give You Up” came out. I thought it was the catchiest song and I was addicted to it. As a teenager, when I REALLY started having an interest in music, the band LIVE was a huge influence for me.”

On American Idol:

::pause:: “Transformative. It transformed everything: my life, the way I make money, the way I raise my kids. It beats the 6am – 5pm job I was doing before. I get to make music for a living.”

The transformation from Idol to being in a band:

“No, not at all. I always knew I wanted to form a band. Was never a question in my mind. The challenging part was performing every night on the Idol tour and recording the first record at the same time. My voice was extremely tired and I was flying all over the place. It was crazy. But it was also fast schooling on how the industry works. You have to have a strong work ethic, which thankfully I have.”

Craziest thin he did on tour while on tour with Three Doors Down

“Wow. Craziest..hmm. Probably that one time I did a back flip on tour with Three Doors Down. It was an indoor football arena. I went out and decided to do a back flip on the turf..after a few shots of Jack Daniels.”

“I didn’t land too well. I had to get an XRay the next day but all was fine. Looking back, it was probably a stupid thing to. There are tons of other crazy things, but that’s the first that comes to mind.”
