One Question Interviews: Invisible Things

Jim Sykes (Invisible Things-drums)

SPB: n songwriting, how do you draw the line between taking influence and mimicking?

Sykes: Honestly I think bands should be sued if they cop someone's style. I don't care if it's the same melody but played in a totally different style - that shows creativity. But when I hear a band write an "original" song but it sounds exactly like Coldplay, I get a very sad feeling inside. As a drummer I think it's okay if I copy John Stanier. How could I not?
