Wolfmother’s Influences: Beck, Not Zeppelin
Wolfmother drummer Myles Heskett spoke with Popworld.com in a Q&A, where he was asked if the Australian band always had the sound they have now. “No. It’s really funny ‘cos everyone always compares us to Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath and all the ’70s bands, but when we met, we were into Beastie Boys and Beck,” he responded. “None of us really had one instrument we could play so we’d just swap around and have these really crazy funk jams. We’ve got all these computer hard drives full of these weird funk, electro things. But when we went to play live we thought we’ll play rock because it’s exciting and powerful.” Popworld.com has since shut down.
