Every musical style has some sort of early influence, and the world of Metal Rock is no exception.
So, just where did these influences come from?

Classic Rockers of course.
Well, they were considered just 'rockers' back in the day.
And by 'back in the day', I mean late 60s and early 70s.
Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Thin Lizzy, Jethro Tull, The Who and Led Zeppelin are some bands that come to mind.

We'll honor those groups and artists with double-shots of their music throughout the weekend, so enjoy, and remember to take us wherever you go…you can hear us on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at 991thewhale.com and on your mobile phone.
