I haven’t done one of these in a while, and it’s not quite Friday here yet, but whatever.
1. What was the first band you saw in concert?
Smashing Pumpkins – Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness Tour 1996. The tickets were a birthday present from my boyfriend at the time, and boy was I ever pissed off when the drummer bit it and they had to postpone the show for 3 months.
2. Who is your favorite artist/band now?
Oh so many, my tastes change seemingly by the minute (and no current artists really have any staying power) but I’ll say the Aaron Pritchett Band, cuz Aaron’s my friend, and he’s great.
3. What’s your favorite song?
I can’t say I have one favorite song – there’s really a soundtrack to my life so to speak, and there are many songs that stand out as important to me. I guess I can toss a few out:
Andy Griggs – She’s More
Barenaked Ladies – If I fall (live version)
Aaron Pritchett – You Can’t Say that I didn’t Love You, & Perfectly Blue
Orbital – Halcyon & On & On (Live with Belinda Carlisle & Bon Jovi)
Bon Jovi – Bed of Roses
Silence – Sarah McLachlan (Paul Oakenfold Remix)
4. If you could play any instrument, what would it be?
I can play the piano, but haven’t for about 4 years, mostly because I haven’t lived with my piano for that time. If anyone wants to band together to get me a really great present one day, an electric piano would be swell (just because I can move it).
5. If you could meet any musical icon (past or present), who would it be and why?
There isn’t really any deep reason behind this, but I think meeting Sir Elton would be just divine.
