Men of note - Mr Robert Plant
'The Attack of the Duck Billed Platypus'
Duane Eddy
With a career spanning nearly 60 years, Mr Eddy, 73, is often credited as one of the great rock'n'roll originals and a true guitar visionary. After a break of more than 25 years, he is now back on the road to promote his latest album, Road Trip, out this month. Here the Grammy-award winning musician tells us of the songs that have always inspired him
'Story of Three Loves (Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini)'
mantovani

"My all-time favourite piece of music and the one I've returned to time and time again for inspiration over the years. It's absolutely glorious."
'Splish Splash'
Bobby Darin

"It went up the charts with my album Rebel Rouser, and Bobby was the first hit artist I met. We did our first tour of England together in 1960 and we were great friends until his death in 1973. Hearing this always brings me wonderful memories."
'He Stopped Loving Her Today'
george jones

"It's the quintessential country song. I grew up with country music, and the clever and sometime ironic ways with lyrics and stories is exemplified perfectly in this song."
'Heartbreak Hotel'
Elvis Presley

"The first of many Elvis recordings that changed my world, took me from playing in honkytonks as a sideman in a country band, and taught me how to be a rock'n'roll artist."
'One For My Baby'
Frank Sinatra

"A perfect performance - it creates such a mood that it's the most visual recording of any I have ever heard. It still gives me chills."
Mr Eddy plays London's 100 Club on the 21st of June and
Glastonbury on the 26th of June
