Tommy Joe Ratliff chats to Pressparty about his "amazing" fans, his journey with Adam Lambert and his career highlights to date

1. You originally auditioned for Adam Lambert’s band as a guitarist, but joined as a bassist and are now back to guitar. What would you say are your main musical influences and have you been able to incorporate them into your current work with Adam Lambert? Is there one particular record or song that changed your life or how you think about music?

To be honest, I've always been a guitarist. It took a little while to get the finesse for the bass, since I use a pick and was a guitar player playing bass (which really upset a lot of traditional bass players haha!). My influences for the bass were Twiggy Ramirez, Simon Gallup and Cliff Burton.

Adam's first album 'For Your Entertainment' was sort of his homage to glam rock. So my style of bass playing worked well for the live show. Switching back to guitar has been so much fun for me. My main influences on guitar have always been Jimi Hendrix, SRV, Slash, Kirk Hammett and of course Prince. When I first heard the songs, I knew they were going to be SO much fun to play live and I already had ideas right off the bat. It's hard to say what my favourite song is, because there are so many different styles on the album and they're all really fun to play and think of guitar parts to fit live.

Hello tjrpics visitors!

When this page first started, it was a personal project of mine that I did for fun, I wouldn't have guessed that the page lasted this long with a vast growing number of pics on it. When I first started, I used my personal photobucket (the one named battlerainbutterfly) to host all the pics.

As the site grows bigger, the tjrpics team had been working
on moving ALL of the pics to our official photobucket :
tjr_pics


Feel free to follow our account on there, browse around (the pics are organized based on the type of events), or hotlink any pics you need.

From now on, we are NOT going to renew the pro account of our old photobucket. But since there are still pics linked to it on our page,

This is a request to NOT HOTLINK FROM OUR OLD PHOTOBUCKET.


If you see battlerainbutterfly on the URL of the pic you want to post anywhere (LJ, twitter, tumblr, forums, etc) please refrain from hotlinking, rehost them to your own server first. If I see you hotlinking any picture from that photobucket, I will have to delete it to keep our bandwidth from exceeding the limit.

Thank you!

Disclaimers :
- Inspired by this post and the format is a complete rip off.
- Posted in chronological order (the order is based on my observation from Tommy's pics, might not be accurate)

Note :
In the Tommy's Tattoos Appreciation Picspam that I posted a while ago, someone asked whether there's a complete list of Tommy's tattoos or not, and after seeing Frank Iero's Tattoo catalog, I got inspired to compile this post. It took me a really long time and so much effort to complete this, I appreciate it if you don't copy the entire post and re-post to your blog, but link to us instead :)

Heya...

Soo... over the past few days I had an "overdose" Supernatural and so I decided to make some icons... but since I wanted to make some new "Hawaii Five-0" icons for a while now, it wasn't of course the only thing I did... and in the end it's a "Multi-Fandom" Icon post including also "Grey's Anatomy" and "Adam Lambert/Tommy Joe Ratlif" aka "Adommy" ;-) I hope, you like them!

Icons:
08x Grey's Anatomy (Callie/Arizona, made for ca_stills  Challenge)
33x "Adommy" (Adam/Tommy - 11 of them made for adommy_contests )
55x Hawaii Five-0 (mostly Danny/Steve but also including Kono and Chin)
58x Supernatural (ALL Dean/Castiel - Sorry, Sammy-Fans ;-))

Heya...

So over the last few days I saved like a TON of beautiful pictures from tjrpics  and since there were REALLY pretty pictures, I started to make icons... well... I think, I "overacted" a bit, because in the end, I made 242 icons... *blushes* I haven't done THIS many icons in an eternity... *lol* more than half of the icons are Adam/Tommy, but there are also many other "combinations"... ;-)

Credit for the pictures goes to their respectful owners! I don't wanna steal, so if someone wants credit for his picture or wants me to delete the icons I made with his pictures - just ask ;-) I don't bite!


Icons:
020x Adam Lambert
049x Tommy Joe ratliff
010x Taylor Green
022x Adam/Taylor
001x Tommy/LP
001x Tommy/Taylor
002x Tommy/Monte

Heya...

I was VERY inspired over the last days and even though I wanted to post those icons tomorrow (because it's already 2.16 a.m. here when I start typing this) I'll post them now, because I can't sleep anyways... too much going on in my mind, too much to think and Christmas won't be "nice" for me anyways... so I thought I could maybe make some people happy with an early Christmas gift and post my icons =D

There are lots of "combinations" this time and I know I'm silly, but I kinda have a "thing" for Taylor/Tommy at the moment... I didn't plan to, it kinda "just happened"... now I hope, you like my icons anyways =D

Icons:
02x Taylor Green
04x Adam Lambert
23x Tommy Joe Ratliff
04x Adam/Brooke
06x Adam/Terrance

Like I already announced before and after working on this community for the past hours, I can now officially open my new challenge community

adommy_contests 

A challenge community for fans/lovers of Adam Lambert & Tommy Joe Ratliff!

There will be different challenges - mostly including Adam and Tommy TOGETHER - but because I really like to be "different" - there might also be Adam-centric and Tommy-centric challenges - maybe with some of the other band members or dancers - we'll see =D
