  1. Where are you and what are you doing?

Right now I am in Tenerife, on a bus to somewhere I don’t know to get a McDonald’s. 

  1. What is your favourite view?

Everton Parks “The View” looking down across the city towards the docks. Lovely place to sit at day or night. 

  1. What is your favourite swear word and why?

My favourite swear word is probably fuckoff. This is universal in every sentence I make. It can be used aggressively or in a nice manner. Usually saying it by accident as 99% of my vocal is swear words anyway.

My first record I bought with my own money was a Catfish and the bottlemen “The Balcony” Vinyl. My first CD was the “With the Beatles” CD. 

  1. Marmite. Yes, or no?


  1. If you could go to a gig right now, anywhere in the world, which band would you see? And in which venue?

I don’t care what venue at all, it could be in a pub in breck road for all I care. The person I would want to see would be Paul McCartney. He’s my idol and my biggest inspiration. I love him.

As said above, Paul McCartney but other artists and bands such as Oasis, The Beatles, Arctic Monkeys, The Libertines, Jake Bugg, Stone Roses.

Scrambled, little bit burnt with cheese and ham. Love eggs me

I’m left handed but play the guitar with my right

  1. Which city do you recommend we visit – and why?

Krakow, Poland. Unbelievable place for people who love history, but also great for people who just want to get away for cheap. Ice cream is also boss over there and the Fanta Smak (Orange) is to die for.

  1. What’s your drink of choice?

Pepsi Max is my go to, but can’t beat a cheeky Lucozade Original now and again

  1. What band or album do you think we should check out right now?
