METALLICA-Fronter James Hetfield, BLACK SABBATH-Sänger Ozzy Osbourne und VELVET REVOLVER-Gitarrist Slash haben im amerikanischen Rolling Stone ihre zehn Lieblingssongs vorgestellt: »James Hetfield: 01. Free Bird – LYNYRD SKYNYRD James Hetfield: "Nothing tops this workingman's ballad. 'Free Bird' fit my life for the first 20 years on the road — not really getting too attached to stuff, living life for the moment and moving on." 02. Stairway To Heaven – LED ZEPPELIN James Hetfield: "When I first got a guitar, I figured out the first couple of fingerings to this, and I ran around the house saying, 'Check it out — I can play this!' My family was like, 'Where's the rest of the song?'" 03. Jailhouse Rock – ELVIS PRESLEY James Hetfield: "I remember seeing that video of him jumping around behind bars with all his buddies. It encapsulates rebellion, which is really just misguided creativity." 04. Behind Blue Eyes – THE WHO James Hetfield: "This song had all that teen angst bubbling under it. It's about asking for help but not really wanting it. Reminds me a lot of me." 05. Candle In The Wind – ELTON JOHN James Hetfield: "'Saturday Night's All Right For Fighting' was more my style, but few songs can top this melody." 06. God Only Knows – THE BEACH BOYS James Hetfield: "I got on a BEACH BOYS kick again about six months ago. I gew up in Southern California; to me, this songs speaks to a higher power." 07. Yesterday – THE BEATLES James Hetfield: "It instantly connected with me. It makes you think, but not too gard." 08. Black Sabbath – BLACK SABBATH James Hetfield: "This song scared the shit out of me. It's beyond heavy." 09. Smells Like Teen Spirit – NIRVANA James Hetfield: "When all that Eighthies hair metal was getting overproduced, NIRVANA came along with this thrashy garage sound and a huge hook. It was what music needed." 10. The Boys Are Back In Town – THIN LIZZY James Hetfield: "Phil Lynott was never afraid to write from the heart, even if it was a little corny. THIN LIZY inspired a lot of METALLICA's guitar harmonies." Ozzy Osbourne: 01. A Day In The Life – THE BEATLES Ozzy Osbourne: "It takes me back to a magical time in my life." 02. Imagine – JOHN LENNON Ozzy Osbourne: "This song will never get old for me." 03. Live And Let Die – PAUL MCCARTNEY AND WINGS Ozzy Osbourne: "A fucking great song. I Love it!" 04. Money – PINK FLOYD Ozzy Osbourne: "Reminds me of my LSD days. I'm glad I survived" 05. Mississippi Queen – MOUNTAIN Ozzy Osbourne: "This one brings back memories of my very first U.S. tour with BLACK SABBATH." 06. Hey Jude – THE BEATLES Ozzy Osbourne: "Hands down one of the greatest songs ever written." 07. Yesterday – THE BEATLES Ozzy Osbourne: "I would have loved to have heard the working-title version, 'Scrambled Eggs'." 08. Don’t' Let Me Be Understood – THE ANIMALS Ozzy Osbourne: "It's always been a favorite of mine." 09. Dazed And Confused – LED ZEPPELIN Ozzy Osbourne: "My world stood still the first time I heard this." 10. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road – ELTON JOHN Ozzy Osbourne: "Great melody. Great lyrics. Great song. I love Elton John!" Slash: 01. Back In The Saddle – AEROSMITH Slash: "I heard this in junior high at the house of this girl I was trying to date. She put it on & I completely forgot about her." 02. The Ocean - LED ZEPPELIN Slash: "A great ZEPPELIN riff." 03. Helter Skelter - THE BEATLES Slash: "It's got that screaming British hard-rock sound." 04. Can't You Hear Me Knocking - THE ROLLING STONES Slash: "This defines the STONES for me." 05. Down Payment Blues - AC/DC Slash: "The chord progression on this is just great." 06. Won't Get Fooled Again - THE WHO Slash: "Arena rock at its best. THE WHO were so before their time." 07. Tie Your Mother Down – QUEEN Slash: "I used to play this with one of those ridiculous old-school Panasonic tape recorders pressed to my ear." 08. Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - BLACK SABBATH Slash: "One of the heaviest riffs ever recorded." 09. Magic Carpet Ride – STEPPENWOLF Slash: "This is an awesome song, even if nobody understands it." 10. I Wanna Be Your Dog - THE STOOGES Slash: "Pure raunch."« Ich finds recht interessant .
