Andrew Stockdale

Wolfmother’s Andrew Stockdale

For the show-stopping “Woman,” Wolfmother’s lead man twists his faded-brown Gibson SG, which features a Bigsby and is either a’72 or ’73. During a 2016 interview with PG, Stockdale described his influences: “Jimmy Page, Keith Richards, George Harrison. I like Robby Krieger from the Doors. I like guitarists who don't necessarily just shred. I’m into people who try to bring some kind of melodic structure to the solo, so it’s almost like a hook.”
