Clutch: Ten Albums That Changed Vocalist Neil Fallon’s Life
Clutch frontman Neil Fallon is the latest musician to share a list of albums that profoundly impacted him (via teamrock.com). While many of the albums Fallon selected won’t surprise you — records by Led Zep, Sabbath, Bad Brains, etc. — there are definitely a few that will. Take, for example, his number six choice, Public Enemy’s 1988 sophomore release, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back. Says Fallon of the record:
“Another soundtrack to high school. I gravitated towards that because starting Clutch, it was easier for me to be rhythmical than melodic. Chuck D was, and still is, one of the best rappers out there. He had a big influence on Clutch, you wouldn’t think so on the surface, but he did. This Public Enemy record influenced Clutch in a big way.”
