Jet's electric guitar player has identified Jimi Hendrix as one of his main musical influences.

Speaking to the Gibson website, Cameron Muncey said that when he began learning to play, he would often have his guitar amp turned up to full blast.

This, he stated, was so he could try to make his electric guitar feed back in a manner similar to Hendrix.

Muncey described the late musician, who was one of the early pioneers of controlled guitar feedback, as a "God-like figure to me when I was starting to play".

The Australian rocker went on to name the Gibson Les Paul as one of his favourite electric guitars.

"It plays really nicely," he commented.

"Every Les Paul has its own unique character."

Jet are best known in the UK for their hits including Are You Gonna Be My Girl and Rollover DJ.

The band's new album - Shaka Rock - is being released next week.
