Favorite bands :
Bach is the greatest composer ever (NEW RAMBLE): Bach uses an 8 measure theme, unlike traditional 4-measure passacaglias of earlier composers, and works as much with the harmony as the melody, so this piece may be better thought of as a chaconne. His ingenious mind comes up with many marvelous variation. Just when you think he might have exhausted all possibilities, he piles another variation on, the most virtuosic of which is a series of triplets in the right and left hand against the theme in the pedal. The first four measures of the Passacaglia theme are then re-used as his fugue subject, which is introduced with an bouncy counter-subject.
Favorite guitarists :
Steve Vai, I don't think he "wanks" at all, I think he knows just when to shred and when to slow down. John Williams. My classical guitar teacher: http://www.myspace.c om/wormholeprophet
Favorite bassists :
Flea, Billy Sheehan.
Favorite books :
Stuff that challenges things. 1984, Frankenstein, Animal Farm, Shakespeare, The Outsider/Stranger (by Camus that is). Epicness: Wilbur Smith.
Favorite tv :
I don't watch TV that much. Chaser's War on Everything and Summer Heights High (on Australia's public tv channel, ABC) are top shows though. As is the IT Crowd (British show), very very funny.
Favorite movies :
I like films quite a lot and have seen many in my time. I'm often found criticising people for not having seen a movie I have.
