As far as rock and roll interviews go, few artists are as expansive, expressive and animated as Craig Owens. Recently, Noisecreep sat down with Owens to talk about his current band, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows (D.R.U.G.S.). Afterwards, we wanted to know, as an aside, who some of the artists were that helped shape this bold front man into what he is today (and where he is headed tomorrow). True to form, just like he does onstage, Owens dug deep and got personal, reflecting on the legends that, not too surprisingly, he seems to channel every night.
