I always like these kinds of things.  It's nice to hear from guys like this.  They formed part of our childhood without us realizing it at the time.  I knew his music was among the best back then too...  You could tell.  Also, since his copyright credit was always displayed on the title screen, he was the only japanese composer I had any idea about for years.

It's interesting that he notes his influences as Western rock/dance.  Uematsu is also heavily influenced by Western artists, such as Elton John.  And you can definitely hear certain tracks having been influenced by certain songs.  Like Red XIII theme intro sounding similar to, and maybe being influenced directly by, Apache (my view).  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EzgbcyfJgfQ

What originally influenced me was... American and British music. It feels kind of strange to hear those people say they like my music. I think, “But it was your music originally!”
