In a recent interview with Impericon, Ghost’s Swedish frontman Tobias Forge made an interesting comment about the legendary music icon, Jimi Hendrix.

Tobias Forge compared the childhood effect of the famous musicians to him and mentioned Jimi Hendrix, Metallica, The Rolling Stones, and legendary Pink Floyd.

Here is his statement:

“I would say Metallica is one of the most important bands for me — has been for a long time. Definitely a band without whom I probably wouldn’t do these things.

I wanted to be a rock musician before I knew, or before I was enamored with Metallica, but they definitely inspired me.”

He continued:

“When I was a kid and liked The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix and all that, they were clearly from another time doing something that sort of belonged to the past, whereas Metallica, when I started listening to them, they were very much current and they were very now.”
