During a recent interview with Metal Hammer, Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch praised AC/DC’s iconic guitar player Angus Young.
He talked about AC/DC’s Back In black Album, and said:
“When that came out I was just like, ‘I want to be in a rock band, I want to play guitar, I want to bang my head like that, I want to be Angus Young.’
Queen got me wanting to be a musician but AC/DC got me wanting to properly play and get good.”
He also said that Metallica’s Master of Puppets album is difnes of metal music. He stated:
“I’d say Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets’ because it is just the ultimate metal album to me. As far as ‘heavy’ and ‘really catchy’ goes, it’s definitely the best.
It’s also got those great, long songs that take you on a big journey, super in-your-face but they’re super-melodic, too. ‘Master of Puppets’ has got massive hooks but it also hits you super-hard.”
