Interview with Otabek Salamov aka NEEDSHES

  1. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  2. A: The Killers inspires me to this day. They stayed true to themselves no matter what happened around them. They neither started to play frank pop and frighten off their faithful fans nor started to make niche music and crazy experience with sound on the scene. The Killers never lowered the quality of their music and live performances.
