Mr. Hiatt's focus shifted when he began to play his then favorite '70's Blues-Rock inspired artists, like Aerosmith and Joe Perry. Finding influences in many places, he mixed his love of rock and classical music and found one Yngwie Malmsteen. As Rustin has progressed, he has drawn inspiration from such players as Tak Matsumoto [松本孝弘], Steve Vai and Akira Takasaki [高崎晃].
Rustin Hiatt's other major influences have been artists such as Randy Rhoades, Eddie Van Halen, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, X-Japan, and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
