It generally takes me a couple of days to acclimatise and work out where I am, but after that I find myself walking miles. My main interest is the music part obviously.

    What are your thoughts on classical music? Do you have any favorites?

    What one famous guitar would you most like to add to your collection?

    You get to spend an evening with any two women in the world. Nobody will ever know. Who do you pick and what do you do?

    I'm not much of a classican fan to be honest, but given a choice I'd go for 'The Planets Suite' by Holst

    I'd go with Steve Hackett's '57 Goldtop

    I'm sure it was Soundgarden's second show at SXSW in March - it was done open air on the roof of a multi-storey car park in downtown Austin, surrounded by other high-rise buildings. Very unusual, but it made for a great atmosphere.

    #1 would be Sigourney Weaver, and all we're gonna do is talk Aliens

    #2 would be Frida Kahlo and we're going to put the world to rights...

    My playing is fairly limited though

    Whilst I obviously couldn't do this justice, it would have to be Rush - Limelight, Closer to the Heart, La Villa Strangiato and Between the Wheels would have to be on there

    I'm really not that fussed which of them gets to valet the car

    Quote Originally Posted by Aceman View Post

    I suppose classical style like Steve Hackett or Rodrigo y Gabriela can do

    The Electric Light Orchestra were first all the way back in 1976

    Soundgarden were the last in March this year

    The best concert is a tough one, but I'll go with Fleetwood Mac in 1980 (I think) at Stafford Bingley Hall - never before have I seen an entire audience dancing on their seats, in what basically amounted to a cow shed (it's the County Showground other times)

    Quote Originally Posted by Aceman View Post

    I still think it's out there, but a) I rarely get to see it because of where I am, and b) the kind of stuff we tend to appreciate is not getting much in the way of media attention right now - the industry appears to have finally work out how it wants to package and sell things; what we like isn't it.

    Sorry, lost me with that one

    Give me a roast dinner with all the trimmings and I'm happy.

    A pint of Guinness if you're offering please

    We met in May 1996 in a pub in Preston, got married in July 2000, and the fact that she was willing to let me take a job in somewhere like Saudi Arabia speaks volumes for her - she did that when we were planning a wedding, and weren't actually able to live together properly until August 2002 when she joined me out there.

    It would seem from afar as if there is something of an imbalance in such things right now; they have a habit of 'correcting' themselves eventually, which some may find rather painful when it happens. You'll survive though

    Gavin Rossdale from 'Golden State', Steve Hackett on 'Firth of Fifth', Gary Moore on 'Empty Rooms', QOTSA on 'Little Sister' and Dave Gilmour on 'Comfortably Numb'

    Probably this one, my 1982 GPz750. It could quite easily keep pace with one of my mates' Z1, which was a couple of years older in design and rather heavier. It was the last of the twin rear shock versions before they all went mono-shock. It looked a little like this, though I can see at least one non-original part on it
