Favorite bands :
I was brought up on Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, that kind of thing. But at the moment I'm into bands like In Flames, The Ventures, Volbeat, Machinae Supremacy, Sonic Syndicate, Scar Symmetry, Black Stone Cherry, Alice Cooper, Bruce Springsteen, Foo Fighters. My favourite band is probably Alter Bridge. Seeing them live have been my favourite live shows so far. Really into The Cat Empire too.
Favorite guitarists :
Mark Tremonti (Creed/Alter Bridge) has been a huge inspiration, as has Paul Gilbert (Racer X, Mr Big, solo) purely because they are excellent musicians but also seem like really down-to-earth guys. Other favourites include David Gilmour (Pink Floyd), Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits)
Favorite bassists :
Don't know bassists tbh. Into a lot of surf basslines and old disco tunes though. A couple of my favourite basslines would have to be And the Beat Goes On - The Whispers, and the line from Rapper's Delight by the Sugarhill Gang
Favorite books :
Trying desperately to get back into reading. Bought a few to get through. Reading Brian Blessed's autobiography atm :D
Favorite tv :
Black Books, South Park, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Top Gear, Have I Got News For You, The Inbetweeners, Spaced. Don't really watch a lot of TV
Favorite movies :
In the past year I've seen a stupid amount so I'll say what I can remember. The Departed, Toy Story 3, UP, My Neighbour Totoro, The Blues Brothers, Wayne's World, Snatch, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, In Bruges, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Gran Torino, The Wrestler. Big fan of Westerns and kung-fu movies too.
I'm 20 years old and have been playing guitar since I was 13 or 14...never can remember...music, comedy and social drinking is the name of the game for me. I like to look at life and pretend that it aint all bad. Make the best of whatcha got
Finished studying Sound Production at college so if you have any questions on the subject of recording/mixing/acoustics and all that I could try and be of assistance.
My hopes and dreams? I don't know yet. Just drifting at the moment.
Always up for a bit of chat so pull up a stool and tell me your troubles and we'll drink til the sun comes up.
