Why He Rocks

Serj experiments with many different types of music, instruments, and equipment, yet he can manage to make them all his own. He can play with three other people or with an entire fucking orchestra. He makes any of the sounds work. He also has a sense of humor. In that interview he starts by talking about apples. His quote "The less you fuck with it, the better it tastes," really speaks to me. He also seems to be a pretty good person. He appreciates his bandmates and enjoys what he does. He writes and composes his music and loves doing it. Overall I think he's a musical genuis and part-time badass.
