I love the more prevalent classic rock influence in Paul and Dustie's playing this time around. It's stupid how versatile they've gotten.
Based on their interviews and videos, I have to think the classic rock influence is primarily Paul's. He strikes me as a guy that listens to Skynyrd, CCR, and probably The Allman Brothers.
Definitely agreed, but I think they both incorporate it quite a bit. I've heard/read in several interviews that both of them idolize Warren Hayes (Allman Brothers) and try to emulate his tone.
