    No, I really don't have the need for management at this point. The Braithwaite gig runs itself, just using booking agents around the country, and any other work just comes through to me direct. With "The Truth" we were managed by Grant Thomas, Crowded House's manager. Unfortunately, he hand-balled us to his younger brother Brent, who was better known as a guitarist and songwriter than a manager. Grant was always busy trying to collect Neil Finn's publishing royalties from around the world, and understandably so. 20% of Neil's publishing was certainly more of an incentive than a band promoting their first album, trying to recoup!

    In regard to your career as a chimney sweep:

    Tell the truth - Mary Poppins was a cougar in the sack, wasn't she? She had to be. All prim and buttoned up with those rosy cheeks. I'll bet once you got her hair down and those boots off of her she turned into a ravenous slutbeast. So... details? Into the dirty stuff, right? Do tell.

    Second, in regard your secondary career as a guitar person:

    Two cyclists start biking from a trail’s start 3 hours apart. The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour. How much time will pass before the second cyclist catches up with the first from the time the second cyclist started biking?

    I can't remember, I was only a baby. But you would think that my folks would have mentioned it. Then again, maybe not. So I would have to say, possibly. Most Aussie kids get kidnapped by dingos at least once, so I'll say yes, just to be safe. Yes, I was kidnapped by a dingo when I was a baby.

    I've definitely wondered what is down the road for me, but I have spent the past couple of years studying the notion that neither the past nor the future exist as anything other than thought, and that the only moment which actually exists is now. I am learning that it is completely useless to worry about the future because it doesn't exist. I can make my little plans, but there is no guarantee that they won't be replaced by some other eventuality. Besides, worrying about anything is destructive to the entire being. As long as I get the sense that I am providing a service to myself and others through playing music, I will continue to do it. I like the freedoms that it provides in my life, and I have also enjoyed the process of watching all of my initial motivations and delusions of glamour dissolve before my eyes, leaving service as the only motivation which has any substance. If this changes, then I will change with it, but for now, this is my perception.

    There is nothing about the 9 to 5 existence which appeals to me. I've seen enough people around me pass from this plane of existence to know that the notion of security is an illusion that can be shattered in an instant. I am learning that the truly important things in life, like peace and love, are not to be found in the outer world, but exist within and always have. As a result, I am no longer looking for them in the world around me, where they are not to be found with any form of permanence. I believe in finding a way to do what you love and love what you do, whilst still providing a service. Then it becomes a service fueled by love, which I believe carries more substance than a service fueled by a sense of duty, especially if it involves or generates some form of resentment. It doesn't matter what form the service takes, guitarist, plumber, window cleaner, it's all the same. The only important element is the intent behind the service. For me, that means being a musician, for now. It means that I have to be prepared to take on all manner of work as a musician, and that I will not always have the luxury of choosing what it is that I will be playing, but that fits in perfectly with my larger quest of gradually dissolving the ego, which is a whole other story in itself, but intimately tied in with these notions.

    Now I'm off to rest under the Bodhi tree and contemplate my navel.

    Lord Tosh was indeed the man. I couldn't imagine anyone else doing that gig.

    Should we tell them about the Dropbears as well? And all our other cuddly wildlife?

    Did you try some extendet Range instruments like 7/8 or more string guitars/basses?
    Can you imagine to use totally different guitar types than your beloved Strat?

    Wow...! Thanks a lot for giving me/us a great read as answer to my questions - that was most interesting! I am glad you let the personal taste shine through on the first question because I have never heard of Kossoff (I don't know if I should be saying this out loud..?)... I liked that you also could elaborate that thoroughly as to why you would recommend that music.. I will have to check out some of his works.. Thanks.

    I'm a very simple player db, any more than six strings and I would just be even more confused. I haven't really been drawn to the technical extremities, my path has been more about exploring the emotional depths, and playing the most common forms for the common man. It feels like there's more than enough there to occupy one lifetime! Although I've messed around with a baritone and that was great fun. I don't have one, but that's something I could imagine getting into.

    I've tried a few other types of guitars. As I mentioned earlier, I had an '89 PRS Custom, and I tried really hard to like it, but it was just too wishy washy and indistinct. It was trying to be "every guitar" and only approximating any of them. I've got a Squire Tele that I really like, and I would love to have a real one, I think they're beautiful guitars. I love the sound of Les Pauls, but I don't enjoy playing them. I liken them to driving an automatic car. They almost seem to play themselves, and I guess I've gotten used to really having to wrestle with a Strat for a more intense result. But I love what other players do with Les Pauls, and the sound of a good one is such a classic rock thing. When they've got their action too low, they sound like toys, but that's the same for most guitars. One guitar I would love to have is a 335, it may seem odd but I think of them as a Strat player's Gibson. But my old Strat has been a loyal friend, it has been with me for my entire professional career, and we have an understanding.

    If you're interested Tor, you might like to have a listen to the Free album "Fire and Water." Some truly beautiful guitar playing from an 18 year old Kossoff.
