The Black Dahlia Murder
Live Interview with Shannon and Ryan from the band The Black Dahlia Murder conducted by Miranda Wilson (Aka Sidine). I would personally like to take this opportunity to thank the guys of The Black Dahlia Murder’s for sitting down with me and taking the time to answer a few questions, it was truly a pleasure to speak with them.
Miranda: How long have you guys been together?
Miranda: How did you guys choose the name “The Black Dahlia Murder”?
Shannon: Um actually that was our singer Trevor’s decision, When the band was forming in the late teenage years. I guess any time a bands forming and they go “Oh we need to think of a name” you’re constantly going through what’s left, you know what hasn’t been taken. I guess Trevor had heard about the stories of The Black Dahlia Murder and was very intrigued by it, it’s a great story it’s creepy and chilling and it sounds cool and nobody has it.
Miranda: Who influenced you to play the instruments you chose?
Ryan: man, that could be a long answer but um, I don’t know just people like Bad Religion in the early days, Slayer, and guys like Marty Friedman, Jason Becker, Eric Johnson really made me want to play the guitar. I saw him on Austin city limits one night when I was like 16 or something and I said WOW! That’s how you play guitar, so there you go.
