During an appearance on 107.7 The Bone, Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy, who had worked with Led Zeppelin in the past, talked about playing with some of the all-time icons of rock music, specifically with Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash, as well as Led Zeppelin.
Myles Kennedy talks about Imposter Syndrome
Durng the interview, he was asked if he still has “pinch me” moments or if he felt the “imposter syndrome” when playing with Slash and Led Zeppelin.
Myles replied that it is the ‘imposter syndrome’. He revealed having that feeling from the very beginning. He said:
“Oh, the imposter syndrome, absolutely. I’ve had that from day one. I always feel like – and I’m sure you can test the same emotion, where you’re like, ‘They’re going to find out I’m not legit! Oh no! What am I going to do? I’m going to go back to teaching guitar!”
He believes that it is ‘funny’ but that is ‘what drives us’ and maybe that’s why they work so hard. Myles Kennedy believes that things shouldn’t be taken for granted and he reckons that the time it is being flaunted, it eventually leads to downfall. The former Led Zeppelin member said:
“And so I guess that’s a good thing because I think if you take it for granted, the minute you start taking it for granted and phoning it in, and you don’t care anymore, and I’ve seen that happen, yeah, then it’s curtains.”
Myles is currently promoting the new Slash album “4.”
