    You have the chance to be a sub-in guitar player for any band still together and that tours. Who would that be?

    Your proudest achievement to date?

Bon Scott was essentially a God to me as a kid. I was always open to other cool bands from Down Under from that point on pretty much. If a band was Aussie I would definitely take a shot at them. Turns out there were tons of amazing bands there, I don't know why for sure - lots of cool reasons that all kind of blended together to make a pretty rich music scene.

    AC/DC, The Angels & Rose Tattoo are massive faves. The Angels and Tatts spawned quite a few spin-offs over time and AC/DC well they've done OK I guess.

    The Lime Spiders, Radio Birdman, The New Christs, The Screaming Tribesmen were a whole other scene Down Under and they are or were all killer bands.

    There is a rawness and spirit that is unique to Aussie bands that I love. Lots of other great bands from Down Under too that I stumbled upon over time but those above were almost all game changers for me.

      The pilot goes first and I am thinking I hold out as long as possible.


    2. Apocalypse comes and you're short on food and trapped in your own neighborhood. Who on your street do you kill and eat first, and why?

      Guy that lives behind me, he's kind of pissed me off a few too many times.

    3. You are a master chef working at a busy restaurant but times are tough . . . you don't have enough money to buy meat one day, but you discover that your best waitress has accidentally been locked in the walk-in freezer and frozen to death. What cuts do you take from the carcass, and how do you season/prepare the flesh in order make it tasty enough for your diners that evening not to notice anything's amiss? (Remember, the more dishes you prepare, the less chance that someone will find incriminating body parts in your freezer.)

      Serve her whole? Not my problem, probably need a lot of BBQ sauce.

    4. The zombie apocalypse has come. Most people have fled their homes. Production of food in your country has stopped. Zombies roam the streets looking for a fresh meal, and you have escaped your quiet suburban neighbourhood with the rest of your family (let's say this is a typical family . . . 2 kids - one 8 year old/one 12 year old, and 2 parents).

      You enter a new town looking for food and are attacked by a chick. You manage to fatally wound the person, but before she dies, she tells you that she was an elementary school teacher and was trying to kill you to provide enough food to keep the surviving members of her class alive (there's no food in town). You also find out that she's been teaching the survivors from a classroom of 11 year olds to kill and cannibalize people passing by in order to survive. They've been doing this for a while now. She tells you where they are living, and to protect them.

      Do you risk your own families safety (and the safety of any other passers by) by ignoring the cannibals and hoping that they don't follow you? Do you risk confronting and executing the kids to guarantee your safety? Do you take the cannibal kids with you and try to teach them to be regular human beings again? What action or inaction would you take, and why?


    They're screwed, they can find that chick and eat her after we are long gone.

    The fact that all of your questions are about cannibalism is quite disturbing.

    Best UFO album Obsession. It is a perfect album.

    Best UFO lineup Phil Mogg, Michael Schenker, Pete Way, Paul Raymond, & Andy Parker. (2nd fave line up just take off Paul, 3rd switch Michael with Tonka/Paul Chapman and Paul Raymond for Neil Carter)

    Top 3 UFO songs Cherry (my fave UFO song), Only You Can Rock Me, I'm A Loser

    The 2nd and third could change anytime but Cherry stays!



    I love UFO with Michael and Tonka not so much with most of the others. With Vinnie Moore they are actually really good but his guitar sound sucks the life out of it for me.

    Been listening to UFO all day since I read this question, been a while since I did that. I was blasting the first Schenker Group album the other day, what an album, still kills me how great his playing is.

    Actually I would probably get a Sunburst first. Someday I hope to have both, only USA Hamer I owned was a Blitz/T-Bird bass.

    Was there a particular 'eureka' moment that made you say, "Guitar! That's what I'll play"?

    If guitar wasn't an option, what would you play?

    You mentioned Original Ray's. Is traditional Italian-American your favorite cuisine, or is there something else you prefer?

    Enlighten us on your choice of avatar. I know who he is, but for the benefit of those just tuning in...

    Did you and your wife "meet cute", did you hang out in college, or was it a 'friend of a friend' thing?

    Well I kind of wanted to play drums too but my Mom figured my Dad would last oh maybe 5 seconds with that noise. So since I had been asking for a guitar for birthdays and Xmas every year for about 4 or 5 years that was the clear winner. It was never a letdown though I wish I knew how to play drums. I started playing when I was 12, fall of '77. My world was never the same, Rock N Roll engulfed me.

    Hehe drums!!

    You mentioned Original Ray's. Is traditional Italian-American your favorite cuisine, or is there something else you prefer?

    Americanized Italian or Mexican are my two faves.

    Enlighten us on your choice of avatar. I know who he is, but for the benefit of those just tuning in...

    My current avatar is the Robert Johnson, King of the Delta Blues. Every guitar player should know who he is! For such a short life he made such an impact, he forever changed the course of modern music. His 100th birthday was the 8th of this month so I am keeping his pic as my avatar til the end of May. A beautiful box set of his original 78's was just released as well as a remaster of the original recordings on CD that apparently blows away the CD box set that came out maybe 10 years ago or so, I'll pick that up too I would imagine. Yes I still buy CD's.


    Did you and your wife "meet cute", did you hang out in college, or was it a 'friend of a friend' thing?

    My wife was a mail order bride from Jersey, it was her only way out. Hehehehe! I actually met her at a bowling tournament when I was 15 and we pretty much fell for each other instantly. We started dating within a few weeks of meeting and we're married 22 years this coming October. Yeah I know start throwing up now but I have a great marriage and she is truly the best friend I have. I don't know how I got so lucky, love is truly an odd, powerful and wonderful thing.

    I should've, we met 30 years ago this past January 5th. We spent a long weekend at a place that is very special to us up in Maine, I'll have to take her over to the Lanes though, it would make her smile. Funny we haven't bowled in ages. I can't really hold a bowling ball properly anymore due to an injury to my hand but it would be fun to try.

    Good call!

    Do you still have the Harley Forty-Eight? Where are your favorite places to ride? What's the longest trip you've taken on it? And what kind of helmet do you have?

    Oh, if you win that $10 million somebody else mentioned, you should buy your wife that bowling alley and rename it "Memory Lanes."
