What made you want to be in a band and learn to play guitar? It looked pretty cool and I loved listening to music so much before I ever picked up a guitar. Oh yeah and if someone says, "you'll never do it!" I like to prove them wrong. Which artist inspires your music the most? This changes as I discover new stuff from past or present. Influences on my gear choice, songwriting and covers choices just keep changing. What is you favourite song to play on stage? Pinball wizard. If you could be in any other band in the world, who would it be and why? Definitely REM. They are by far the best band ever across the board. If you were a biscuit, what would you be? Jamie dodger. If you could make anyone else in the world join Xebra, who would it be and why? Bezz from Happy Mondays, he’s cool. What current instrument(s) are you gigging? Crafter SA electro-acoustic guitar, Epiphone ES-335, Epiphone jumbo acoustic guitar and Clearwater Mandocaster mandolin. What would be the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery? I’d buy my own fully kitted out to my spec recording studio. You get stuck on a desert island, what three things would you take? Acoustic guitar, Brown sauce and my iPhone. What are you most scared of in the world? Shania Twain! What did you want to be when you were little? Big, no a chef actually. If you were an animal what would you be and why? A wolf, I like the idea of being up a mountain howling a lot. What is the best gig you have ever been to see? REM at the oval cricket ground, been couple of times so I can't remember the years. What is the best gig you remember playing? Some theatre in Manchester as support for an Elvis tribute. We got all the accolades from the Local paper the next day. Good venue, big stage and a fun night. One bit of advice you'd give 16 year old you. Don't worry it will get bigger! What would your biography title be? Stop the world I wanna get off!
