Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy spoke in an interview with BODS Mayhem Hour and explained why do most people misunderstand Led Zeppelin’s genre.

Here’s the statement:

“When I was younger, I went through a period where it was all about hard rock and metal, and I didn’t listen to anything else. And then one day I [thought], ‘Wait a minute. This is great, but there’s so many other great forms of music out there. Let’s absorb some of that as well and see what happens.’ And that’s something that’s always intrigued me.

And frankly, that’s one of the things I love about Led Zeppelin. And I think that’s why that band is so important. People think of Led Zeppelin… oftentimes they’ll misunderstand them as a strictly hard rock band.

I’ve even read articles where people would categorize them as metal, which I would never go there. They’re just a hard rock band, blues based.

But you listen to some of those records and they were touching on so many different styles of music. You listen to ‘In Through The Out Door’ and listen to all the crazy stuff going on there; it’s awesome. And they could do it all.”

Myles Kennedy’s first solo album, “Year Of The Tiger”, was released on March 9, 2018 via Napalm Records.
