The Weezer ‘Blue’ Album is a classic. I think My Morning Jacket‘s ‘Circuital’ is a great album to have. Any Led Zeppelin album.

A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music’s simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It’s different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I’m mutating country and folk more than a few degrees.

I read one article that called me the ‘latest pretender to the Led Zeppelin throne.’… If I saw the guy I’d knock him out. Because that’s not true – I’m not pretending anything. If my records sell, it’s because of me.

I’ve built an 8-track studio in my house that’s virtually identical to what they used at Abbey Road, and I also own the 16-track set-up that Led Zeppelin used to record ‘Houses of the Holy.’ I’m interested in producing, but I’m mostly recording my own stuff.

Lukas Haas
Music was so important to the culture when I was growing up in the Sixties and Seventies. We just expected that Bob Dylan was going to make a great record, and it was normal. It was like, ‘Okay, here’s another great record by Bob Dylan; here’s another great record by Led Zeppelin.’

From the first album, Led Zeppelin was always going to be a totally new approach from what had gone before – whether it was approaching the blues or folk music like ‘Babe I’m Gonna Leave You’: nothing existed like that.

For a long time, when I was very young, I went to go see arena rock bands. I was 16, and it was all I could get in to see, legally. And I saw Led Zeppelin and Ted Nugent and Van Halen and all that.

My daughter wasn’t into that type of rock music and kind of played it off. But then these teenage boys started coming around, and Led Zeppelin, I don’t know, it became reinvented. Now she’s very proud of her grandfather.

Imagine a music business where all the music press talked about, all day long, was cover bands of old rock and pop groups. Beatles cover bands, Rolling Stones cover bands, The Who cover bands, Led Zeppelin cover bands. Cover bands, cover bands, everywhere you go.

When I met Groucho Marx, I had butterflies in my stomach. And I met him at a Led Zeppelin party, which is ironic.

Fox News‘ will one day come to an end. Led Zeppelin will not. It’s as simple as that.

We’d love to see Led Zeppelin on ‘Guitar Hero.’

Probably every band – you get back to like, The Stones are kind of the tough guys, Beatles are kind of psychedelic, Led Zeppelin was kinda mystical, The Who are kind of mods. You know, you just go right through. Everyone’s kind of adopted their so-called persona or flavor if you will.

I wanted to be a composer before anything else. And my sister was listening to Led Zeppelin in the other room! When I heard that, it was a game-changer.
