I love reading or hearing about albums or musicians that have literally changed peoples life. But what is really cool is hearing a rock star talking about his inspirations.

Serj Tankian recently sat down with U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine where he talked about the albums that have changed his life and why he decided to become a musician.

The new album from Serj Tankian is entitled "Harakiri" and is set for a July 10th release date.

Check out the video of Serj talking about the albums that changed his life.
