Neal Weiss of Launch.com recently spoke with Michelle Branch and asked the singer who were her musical influences. “The classic rock influence comes from my parents, who are constantly listening to classic rock,” she said. “As I grew up, they’d blare it. They’d blare Led Zeppelin and we’d be in the car and we’d listen to the oldies station. It was really a music that I latched onto and was inspired by, and I always preferred it to Paula Abdul or whatever was going on when I was growing up. And people would always ask me. ‘What do you listen to?’ and I still put on those records. I still listen to Queen, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith. Stuff like that. But more of the modern stuff… I like the Black Crowes, Train, Lifehouse, and the Calling.”
