In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wood named some of his favorite visual artists, “Through the years, since my art college days, I always loved Caravaggio and Rembrandt, through Picasso and Expressionists and Impressionists. I love Georges Braque and Goya. It’s a whole different field to express myself, taking influence from the great artists and molding it my way. You know, you can apply the same thought to music. You take a little bit of Mozart, a bit of [lastfm]Chuck Berry[/lastfm], and a bit of [lastfm]Bob Marley[/lastfm] or something, and you mix it all together and it comes out your way.”

On a music-related note, Wood is set to release his first solo album titled I Feel Like Playing on September 27, 2010. This will be the first album release for Wood since 2001.
