DAM also draw their influence from such controversial issues as terrorism, drugs and women’s rights. Musically they take their inspiration from both Hip Hop artists (Nas, 2Pac, Mos Def, IAM, NTM, Saian Supa Crew, MBS etc.) and Arabic music (Marcel Khalifa,Kazem Saher,George Wassouf, Majda al Romi etc.) "The legendary Ron Splinter, guitar player, songwriter and co-leader with Wally Tax of the monumental Outsiders, is back doing what he does best; playing thunderous rhythm and solo guitar in his unique way and writing songs. He has found a new partner in crime, singer-songwriter Jerry Turner, who played in famous local bands. Together they turn out one catchy rock song after another.
