Guitarist Zach Myers of Shinedown says all members have an equal part of the band. He said, “If I’m gonna voice my opinion and somebody doesn’t see it my way, then I’ll move on. But a lot of the times, we’re very open to each other’s opinions.” He has no plans of working outside of the band, in fact he said, “For me, man, I see a lot of side projects, and I’m not downing anybody who does a side project — I’m never in someone’s situation, but I honestly can say that I would never try to get a rock side project off the ground. Because I’m in a rock band, and I get everything I need from that rock band.” Shinedown has had fourteen #1 hits on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart. The only act with more is Three Days Grace with 15.
