We have nine hungry Rottweilers on the farm.
I have got an anthology album out. The American version has got the same mixes but the European version, I remixed them in the studio and added a couple of things that I have always wanted to add.
I am writing a book and that takes third place of importance.
I love playing for people.
The first eight songs we were using someone else’s monitors and it is hard to follow the changes when you are jamming if you can’t hear those who you are jamming with.
We were gradually playing larger venues and in the early days PA systems were kind of non-existent. So to play loud, we had to use louder equipment. The PA systems back then didn’t mic the instruments – only the vocals.
I don’t wish my career on anyone.
I got a couple on per album but my problem was that I wanted to sing the songs and not let Roger sing them.
With bass, especially bottom end, the vibration has to happen on stage otherwise the feel is wrong. This is why you can’t scale the equipment down too far.
This band makes sure that we have whole sections of stuff that are free form so that they don’t know what we are doing next, that is the fun part of playing. You are playing something that you haven’t ever played before.
I don’t mind doing the Who tours when they come along but I want to get out there and play.
I deep sea fish a lot.
So by the time I taught myself the bass guitar at the age of 14, my hands were already pretty nimble.
I supply the music for Vampires, which is a new series that’s coming out.
We’ll open for anyone, we are just looking to play.
