Favorite bands :
This changes every five minutes, so I will list but a few of the very best:
Alice Cooper, Ocean colour Scene, Muse, Eric Clapton, Radiohead, the Listening, The Who, Boston and pretty much all other classic rock and indie bands.
Favorite guitarists :
In my eyes the best guitarists arent those who can play with all the skill in the world, but those who make that indescribable sound. Blues guitarists like Gary Moore and Eric clapton know what I mean, Im also very appreciative of Steve Craddock from Ocean colour scene for his experiments and vast array of expression pedals (and his constrant frustration with the world) also Matt Bellamy for just doing something different and putting all he has into it.
Favorite bassists :
I cant name many famous bassists who really do it for me bar Stanley Clarke. the problem with bass is that people can be oh so skilled at it and it sound aweful or really bad at it and it sound ace (or at least doing the job). I hate to say it, but the best bassists I've ever seen are small time Christian bassists. At least they put their soul into it. The rest of the world best get a move on and make some soulful bass!
Favorite books :
History; particularly the classical period (Greece and Rome 700BC - 75AD), the history of Venice, the industrial revolution and the history of the electric guitar/bass.
Theolo gy; favoured authors so far being Shane Claibourne (the irrestable revolution), John Eldridge (wild at heart), Rob Bell (Velvet Elvis) and Pete Greig (Red Moon Rising - 24/7 prayer movement).
Favorite tv :
Most of the time i like Quizcoms, such as; have i got news for you, never mind the buzzcocks etc. However Im also getting quite into Heroes and the re-make of Battlestar Galactica. Anyone who watches lost, get over it seriously, they are all a load of retarded invalids who need to take a long look at themselves and ask the question "Am I really this retarded?"
Here is an accurate impression of matthew fox "Hi, Im matthew fox, I love myself... so i guess... you probably should too..."
Favorite movies :
Top 5 of all time (at the moment):
The Twelve Monkeys
Kill Bill 1&2
Catch me if you can
Dead man's Shoes
My name is Charles, and I am a Believer!
I beleive in the Lord almighty.
I believe in the true sound, that every guitar was created as part of the search for perfect tone, that tone and sound that can only be found through persperation. The true sound, that every Amplifier and effect pedal could be used to help discover, or hinder if used improperly.
I seek the perfect tone, and I believe that I will eventually be close.
