Eddie Trunk
In between 15 and 20 – probably at around 17 – my interests switched from hard rock to punk rock. And then by 20 they were circling out of punk rock back into Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, the stuff that I didn’t get to when I was younger.
Rick Rubin
What Jimmy Page did was pretty inspiring for guitar players. He married a lot of acoustic elements into hard rock. The kind of chords he used were very left of center, with a lot of dissonance – I absorbed that like a sponge. It’s all over the music I write, always.

Rick Rubin
The feathers have been retired to the London Hard Rock Cafe. I don’t obsess about it as much. Also, it’s strange – the better physical shape I get in, the less I care about what suit I’m covering myself up in. I’m not really out to flaunt it, but I’m just more comfortable in my own skin.
Brandon Flowers
One thing people would be surprised about is that although hard rock and heavy metal are without question 90% of what I listen to and my passion, there are other things I enjoy. My first ever favorite band in my life before KISS was a power-pop band called The Raspberries.

Roger Glover
The knowledge from an enlightened person breaks on the hard rocks of ignorance.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Dmitry Medvedev
I write almost all my songs on an acoustic guitar, even if they turn into rock songs, hard rock songs, metal songs, heavy metal songs, really heavy songs I love writing on an acoustic because I can hear what every string is doing; the vibrations haven’t been combined in a collision of distortion or effects yet.
Corey Taylor
I like mellow music. I like some jazz. But I’m not a big hard rock guy.

I work to loud music – hard-rock stuff like AC/DC, Guns ‘n Roses, and Metallica have always been particular favorites – but for me the music is just another way of shutting the door.

Socialism also brings us up against the hard rock of eugenic fact which, if we neglect it, will dash our most beautiful social construction to fragments.
Havelock Ellis
I listen to tons of hard rock and metal, like Iron Maiden, Motorhead, etc., but I also listen to Beethoven and Mozart, to Discharge and the Bad Brains, and to Charlie Parker and Duke Ellington. So I think there’s merit to both the melodic punk and to the hardcore stuff too.
Dave Smalley
Hard rock will always be hard rock, but you don’t really know what is rock – and what isn’t – anymore. I don’t consider a lot of the pop things I hear on the radio to be rock n’ roll. It’s just kind of fragmented.
Alice Cooper
Hard rock will always be hard rock, but you don’t really know what is rock – and what isn’t – anymore.
I don’t consider a lot of the pop things I hear on the radio to be rock ‘n’ roll. It’s just kind of fragmented.

So when I got to be about 13 or 14, I started listening – even though my parents music was way cool – to contemporary hard rock at that time, which was Aerosmith, Cheap Trick, Black Sabbath, AC/DC, Ted Nugent and all that, and that’s just where I came from.

Joan Jett
I personally wouldn’t want my second album to sound like my first; it might sound very rocky or hard rock – and that wouldn’t be melancholy. So if people think my music is melancholic, then so be it. It’s meant to be uplifting, and I’m just basically saying what needs to be said.
