Early Life

Stockdale was educated in Brisbane, Australiamarker, at Ashgrove State School, Wimbeldon Middle School, The Gap State High School and Kelvin Grove State High School, and lived in Ashgrovemarker and Wimbledon Village, London as a child.

Styles and Method

Stockdale's influences are most commonly cited among late-sixties and early-seventies hard rock and heavy metal guitarists. Vocally compared to a "cross between Robert Plant and Ozzy Osbourne" by Allmusic, his guitar antics and stage persona are commonly traced to Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi and Jimi Hendrix, while his style can often be compared to progressive rockers Pink Floyd.

Equipment

Stockdale plays Gibson guitars, primarily a 72' SG standard with a Bigsby vibrato tailpiece in vintage sunburst. He has also been seen using a 61 Reissue Gibson SG. Other times he uses a Gibson Dot Studio ES-335, a white Gibson Flying V and an alpine white Gibson EDS-1275 with golden hardware. For the recording of the Wolfmother album he used a borrowed Gibson ES-355 through a 60's Marshall. When playing live, he uses a Vox AC30 and a Marshall JMP. In the past Stockdale has been noted to use Orange amplifiers and cabinets. Stockdale also states to use a Fender Stratocaster, though he prefers the Gibson guitars. In recent times he has also started using a Hohner Blues Master Harmonica microphone for some vocals.

Stockdale's current pedalboard consists of a Fulltone Clyde wah, a Fulltone Supa-Trem, an Electro-Harmonix Microsynth, an Electro-Harmonix Small Stone phaser and an Electro-Harmonix Big Muff.
