All the more reason to find out what albums have influenced Haken, so we’ve asked Richard Henshall (guitars, keyboards, backing vocals) about the 3 albums that have influenced him the most.
Radiohead – OK Computer
We did eventually go on to write some original tracks in that band but it eventually fizzled out. A few years later we went on to form Haken, so there’s a happy end to that tale! I love how Radiohead they’ve evolved as a band over the years. They’re certainly a band that never seems to be complacent and are always searching for exciting ways to expand their music in so many directions. I find this hugely inspiring and it is this kind of work ethic that we try to adhere to in Haken.
