It's three strikes felony law in California. You get three felonies of any kind, you get life in prison. (In Regards to bands name)

It's been together for about two and a half years from the harbor area of Los Angeles, like San Pedro. Our guitarist, Todd Deguchi and I started the band back in '88 because we had similar taste in music, and we had a demo CD for a while. It kind of didn't go anywhere and this is our second attempt; a different band. '3rd Strike' formed about two and a half years ago. Besides Todd and I there is Erik Carlsson on guitars, Gabe Hammersmith on bass, and P J McMullan on drums. We recorded a record last summer, and we've been touring ever since.

Definitely Ozzy and 'Black Sabbath' of course. I like some hip-hop too. I like a lot of oldies kind of stuff, like old motown kinda stuff, and old metal. I'm not to into new metal though.

Yeah, of course. People are always going to compare us until we are up there and then people will be comparing other bands to us. I don't mind it, I just don't like when people generalize stuff so much that they don't get into it and find out the differences. Yeah we might have rap melody, and metal guitar. If you're really a music fan, you can tell the difference. Even if two bands are playing the same style of music, you can tell a difference.

Basically it just ranges from everybody that inspires us. We tend to not want to write in one style, you know? We don't just want to write heavy songs, mellow songs. We basically just want to put together all the styles that we like and our influences and put it into a way that 3rd Strike would do it. We all have different influences and none of us listen to the same things. Basically a collaboration between all of us is what has been the end result of all that.

Well, I guess someone with Delta Force came to our record company and was looking for a band to put on the videogame, so they came to us about it. Since we love to play video games, we thought it would be great to do it.

Well, Jim writes all the lyrics, and Jim writes about what he knows and what he has lived through. All the songs are basically written about something that he has experienced in his life. Things that he has seen, things of that nature. And anything that he has been through is what he writes about. But I don't think he intentionally writes a certain song for whatever. Basically the songs just kind of come to him when he listens to the music, and he writes about that.
