He shared how when he joined No Doubt their sound was such a huge departure for him musically and how its paid off in such a great way. Tom says that he’s excited for the “new paths ahead” and is “looking forward to taking more risks”.
Tom is such an inspiration to so many of us and we’re excited to see what he’s up to next!
A big part of creativity is having the courage to take risks. For me, this means getting out of my comfort zone, & trying something different, wacky, quirky etc. It’s about telling an old story a new way, or finding a new path never before taken. Sometimes when we take a risk, we fail, & learning from that is an important part of the process. When I joined ND way back in the day we were more of a ska band, and I had a hard-rock musical background. They took a chance and embraced what was different about me, and we fused our styles together into something new. I’m excited about the new paths ahead, and looking forward to taking more risks!
