Neil Fallon has sang on 13 album's worth of Clutch songs, and that doesn't even include the music he's made in the three other acts he's done time in — the Company Band, the Bakerton Group and Dunsmuir. Suffice to say, the 51-year-old singer-guitarist has made a helluva a lot of tunes over the years, and in a recent interview with Loudwire, he was asked to pick the one Clutch song that he's most proud to have been a part of.
"Probably 'Big News I,'" he said of the opening track on Clutch's 1995 self-titled album. "Because I knew it was going to be received [either] very positively or very negatively. That's usually a good move, and that's exactly what happened.
"[At the time] our sound was very much more rooted in straight-ahead, unswung aggression, and 'Big News I" was a massive swing. And suddenly it became a lot easier to write lyrics."
Listen to "Big News I" below and then watch Fallon select 11 non-metal albums (blues, funk, modern classical, more) that he thinks every metalhead needs to know.
