What’s your earliest musical memory?

Hearing Elvis on the radio. Hound Dog

 

What was the first record you got/bought? 
“Meet The Beatles” LP

 

What is your favourite listening medium and why?
Radio. Its something that I grew up with and is very comforting and enjoyable to me. But I listen to my ipod because of the amount of songs I can conveniently listen to when I want.

 

One album you’d like to hear re-recorded/mixed/mastered/ done differently? (Can be your own album or someone else’s)
I would like go back in and re-record/remix and master one my records “Beastwomen from the Center of The Earth”

 

How much do you listen to your own records?
As much as I listen to The Doors and Led Zeppelin. Quite often. I always workout to “Lightning Strikes” and “Thunderhawk”.

 

Is there a genre/thing that you wish would see a second coming? Is there a combination of sounds/styles you’d  like to hear that hasn’t been done yet?
I would like to see a second coming of “Rock n Roll”. Maybe “Rock, Metal, Classical, Waltz and Polka” combined.

 

How do you feel about the current state of music production/music scene?
There are some great artists and producers out there. I would like to see Rock make a comeback into the mainstream.

 

What do you think will be the listening medium/environment in let’s say 10 years from now? Do you think digital will reign supreme or do you think there’ll be a physical medium that will catch up?
I think people will soon tire of all the manufactured pop and rap out there. Technology is constantly moving forward at a rapid pace. There will be something else to replace digital.

 

Any hot new bands out there we should check out?

I think Ghost is a very interesting band.  They are currently on tour with Iron Maiden. I am always impressed with a band that has great music and is theatrical and wears masks.
