Interviewed by faerierhona :
1. What is the best gig you have ever attended?
That’s a really hard one. I’ve attended around 500 gigs in my life and seen well over 1000 live bands – many of which have been absolutely fabulous.
I could choose from so many but I think the band which possibly tops the bill for the best live act I’ve ever seen has to actually be U2 when I saw them at Wembley Stadium back in 1993. Although I’ve just checked my gig listings and The Sisters of Mercy actually slightly topped even that with there show at Brixton Academy on 21st December 1993. Other very great includes include numerous New Model Army and Nine Inch Nails shows, Fields of the Nephilim, The Mission, Marilyn Manson, Portishead, Ghost Dance, Garbage, Transvision Vamp, Republica, PJ Harvey, All About Eve and (of all bands) Bon Jovi!
2. Are you actually trying to turn into the Bill Gates of the roleplaying world?
That’d be Peter Adkison wouldn’t it?
I basically want to try and make some of the things I’ve been talking about for years actually happen. I have a 5-year plan and we’ll see what happens. One of the reasons I’m going for it now is because I can afford to and haven’t got any other commitments that are holding me back (mortgage, wife/kids, etc). I’d like to at least try to follow my dreams rather than go through life and not try to make them happen. I’d rather die knowing I tried and failed over the fact that I never tried.
3. Are you in love?
There are several very dear friends whom I love. But I am not *in love* in the traditional sense of the word at present. Although I am very fond of someone. Things change though and love can hit you at the strangest of times.
4. Day or Night?
I like both! I’m like this with seasons too – I like them all for different reasons!!!! I couldn’t choose. Sorry :(
5. Tea or coffee?
I used to be very anti-coffee but have developed a taste for it over the years. I still prefer tea though – I find it much more refreshing than coffee.
