Hard Rock ist offen gesagt eines der am unklarsten definierten Musikgenres. In der Umgangssprache wird es oft für so unterschiedliche Musikrichtungen wie Punk, Industrial Rock, Grunge oder Heavy Metal verwendet. Musikalisch baut ein Song meist auf einem 4/4 Takt auf, die Betonung liegt auf den Backbeats. Notorisch im Hardrock ist das pentatonische oder erweitert pentatonische Gitarrensolo, das sich mindestens über die Länge einer ganzen Strophe erstreckt. Hauptsächlich will man sich mit der Bezeichnung “Hard Rock” vom kommerziellen Pop-Rock abgrenzen. Die Wurzeln von Hardrock liegen im Beat und im Psychedelic Rock der 1960er sowie dem Blues. Besonders stark sind auch die britischen Einflüsse auf das Hard Rock Genre: Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin und Black Sabbath stammen allesamt von der britischen Insel und überraschten ihr Publikum durch poetische, englische Lyrik. Auch AC/DC hat einen schottischen Teil, waren textlich aber schon immer deutlich handfester. Auch die Nordamerikaner gingen in ihren Texten eher direkt vor. Der deutsche Beitrag zum Thema Hard Rock stammt aus Hannover und hört auf den Namen Scorpions. International verständlich wird das ganze durch zwei E-Gitarren, einen E-Bass, Röhrenverstärker und Schlagzeug – bei Bedarf auch eine Hammond-Orgel. Dabei wird den Stilvorgaben in der Regel treu geblieben. Der Hard Rock Musiker ist wie ein erfahrener Handwerksmeister, der die geheimen Regeln seiner Zunft kennt und sie nie bricht. Immer wieder gerne dazwischen: Das epische Gitarrensolo als Meisterstück. Später entwickelten Black Sabbath und Alice Cooper dann die Spielart Heavy Metal, die schnell zu einem eigenen Genre heranreifte und das stramme Korsett des Hardrocks durchbrach.

Then came 1976 and walking home from Jr. High School Trunk made his usual stop at the local record shop he passed every day with a friend. It was there that he was introduced to a record by a band called Kiss. Their brand new album at the time was called Rock & Roll Over. However, since his buddy hadn’t heard that one yet, he recommended the previous Kiss LP called Destroyer. Needless to say, like any other kid growing up in the 70s, the Kiss obsession began (and still continues!). From there it led to other hard rock favorites such as Aerosmith, UFO, Black Sabbath, Billy Squier (whom Eddie had seen open for Kiss with his old band Piper at his first concert ever in December of ’77 at Madison Square Garden), Rush, Y&T, and countless others. Trunk never cared about trends and if bands were considered “cool,” and was often made fun of for the bands and music he liked (there was no band considered more un-cool than Kiss in the very early 80s). As a result, he never spent much time with the “in crowd” in high school, and spent time listening to records and reading about his favorite bands. As a senior in high school (where he never had good grades), Trunk was asked to write a record review section for the high school newspaper. It was there that he could earn school credit, while also doing what he loved, listening to music. A music career was born.

In a review for the Los Angeles Times , Randy Lewis opines that "the importance in life of sustained effort along a particular direction" is "a thought that's inescapable listening to the latest release from former Beatle Ringo Starr." He also states that "he spends a bit of time here simply banging away happily [...] But the heart of the 10-song collection comes from his continued exploration of how to hold on to noble ideals in the face of ever-rising cynicism and violence." Lewis concludes that "he holds securely to an upbeat perspective that borders on cliché [...] that's somehow reassuring coming from the guy who's spent most of his life in an intimate relationship with time."
