Most embarrassing album owned: I’m not embarrassed by a single thing I own. Some of it people may think a bit odd in this here “metal community”, but every bit of music I own I connect with on some level. Some part of me goes to a certain place with a certain album, and I’m not ashamed of that.
Favourite venues: For gigs: Rock City (Nottingham), The Cavern Club (Exeter). For Festivals: Bloodstock, Beermageddon
First gig: Johnny Cash, Cornwall Coliseum. 1980-something. My mates took the piss out of me, because it wasn’t “cool” or “metal”. Then we all grew up and learned to appreciate things properly. Who’s laughing now f**kers?!!?!
Favourite gig: Always will be 1988 Monsters of Rock
Favourite drink: Espresso. Not coffee… Espresso.
Favourite food: All of it. Except Grapefruit… F**k Grapefruit. Oh, and Asparagus. Should just be called “bleugh”.
