Like many teens that grew up in the ’80s, Clutch guitarist Tim Sult gravitated to the hard rock music of the era.

“I got into rock and classic rock and heavy metal when I was a younger teenager,” he explains via phone from his Maryland home. “I was influenced by stuff like Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin and Iron Maiden. I liked the hair metal stuff of the day, too, like Motley Crue’s ‘Shout at the Devil’ and the first Ratt album and all that. The early Ozzy stuff with Randy Rhoads was a huge influence as well. Black Sabbath too. That was the stuff around in my era when I started playing guitar. That’s the era I come from — when hair metal was still metal.”
