Gas Giants' Robin Wilson

"The Gin Blossoms and ... a few other bands in Tempe (Ariz.), we built

the Tempe music scene. It didn't exist when I was 22 and, by the time I

was 23, we had a music scene. And it was really exciting to build something

from scratch and see it actually begin to affect thousands of people

around the city. It's something for the longest time that I took more

pride in than the Gin Blossoms accomplishments: The fact that me and my

buddies went out and built a music scene seemed like a lot larger accomplishment"
