Fergie Names Her Rock Influences
The Black Eyes Peas singer has received raves and constant praise from Slash, with whom she worked on the track "Beautiful Dangerous" from his 2010 solo album.
When asked about her vocal influences, Fergie laid out a healthy list of rockers. "There are so many different people that I've emulated vocally," she said. "In the rock world - Sebastian Bach, Vince Neil, Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant. They all had amazing vocal talent. And as far as female vocalists, I love Heart, Joan Jett, Courtney Love, Laura Branigan, Linda Ronstadt, Barbra Streisand-or going back to when I was a child-Aileen Quinn, the original Annie. I have so many different influences, and if you listen, you can hear all of them throughout my songs. I like to use different parts of my voice, and I don't limit myself." - What does Slash have to say about her?
