JP, what are your top fave 5 records which have
impacted you the most in your life musically or otherwise?
Free Live by Free
Paul Kossoff had the sound, the kool licks, the power. For a period of time… I was Kossoff!! The Band had it all, song-writing, groove, attitude, it was a big influence on me.
Buddy Miles Express
A rock sound with Horns!! A perfect blend of Rock/Soul/R&B/Funk, ahead of it’s time, no doubt. Buddy always gave front row to the electric guitar, and his mix of rock riffs with a big band sound was innovative.
Led Zeppelin I by Led Zeppelin
Powerful, seductive, dark, mysterious, killer riffs, killer drums, great musical arrangements, unbelievable vox…the sound of rock!
Van Halen by Van Halen
A breath of fresh air. Eddies’ versatility and tone redefined electric guitar. Eddie was the Hendrix of the 80’s.
Back in Black by AC/DC
Massive grooves, Pure guitar tone, screaming vocals, the ultimate good time/party band. Timeless!
