7 Days, 7 Questions: Day 1

Let’s explore some of this passion we have for music. All this week I’ll b asking some questions, sharing my thoughts and, hopefully, hearing from you!

If you could pick one band, past or present, that you could be a member of, which would it be and why?

Bonus marks for explaining what your position in the band would be (you wouldn’t be replacing anyone, just one more band mate).

For me, U2 has historically been my favourite band over time. Not necessarily in the moment but overall that’s who I’d go with.

It has something to do with both the music, the lyrics and the personalities within the band that attracts me. Their music has moved me at times, brought out passion for the world and even pissed me off royally. They aren’t a band I have blind passion for but they do hit me on all sides of the equation.

As for position, that’s tough. I had no exposure to learning music growing up. I can’t sing to save my life, sadly (my wife can confirm). That said, I do love to write so I think I’d have to go with co-lyricist with Bono. I think we’d have some grand arguments!

So how about you?

    I think I’d have to go with Metallica. That’s the band that made me want to get serious about playing guitar. i’ve been a massive fan since I first heard Ride The Lightning back in around 1985. I was 12, maybe 13, and it just knocked me on my ass. I’m not just a blind adoree though. Like everyone, they’ve had missteps over the years, and I’m not afraid to hold them accountable when they release garbage. And no, I’m not talking about St Anger. Lulu anyone? S&M? Reload? Yuck.

    Although I’d be completely redundant, playing rhythm guitar on a nightly basis with the guys who had such a massive impact on my palying would be amazing.

    Having said that, i’m pretty confident that Lars’ personality and mine would clash in a major way!

    For me, it would have to be Ultravox, and back up signer to Midge Ure. To me they were the band of the alternative 80s, with profound lyrics, incredible music, and something that made me pick them as the best band.

    I could say the same -The Beatles, Radiohead or U2, but I think I’ll be kicked out after the first album. I can say Nirvana because I think we can go on & experimented after Kurt.

    But I’ve never asked this question myself so I would have to go with a band from my generation, a boyband to be specific- Take That. I’ll be part of one of the greatest modern boyband ever & have the most successful comebacks in music history.
    Sing, dance, play instruments, & write timeless songs. I can do that until I die.
