Pop Matters interview.
PM: Who were the biggest influences on you as a young guitarist?
LP: Eddie Lang. He was the first one that I heard that really influenced me. My brother and I hitchhiked to Milwaukee, went to Orth's Music Store there, and asked the guy who was really great, and he played Eddie Lang for us. We listened to him over and over and over. That was how I learned; there were no teachers back then, only music stores. Waukesha didn't have anything like that. Now, another one to come along was Nick Lucas, and he was wonderful too. But Eddie Lang -- he was the boy.
