How did you become a musician?

My mom handed me a violin before I knew what it actually was and before I could say NO.

 

Where do you see yourself 20 years from now?

Either living in a really tiny house without money, still enjoying life, or in a plane, travelling the big, wide world.

 

Musical inspiration:

Artists that make extraordinarily good live albums or who play all the instruments themselves.

 

What’s in the music folder on your phone/computer/other device?

Covers the whole music history, because it reaches from Shostakovich to Queen, from John Mayer to Bob Marley, etc.

 

What is your favorite song from each of your albums?

I like Worst Enemy a lot, but you can’t pick a child! God, what a question.

 

Favorite song ever to play live:

That would be one of the amazing organ intros John Lord used to do live with Deep Purple.

 

Best country to tour in:

The ones where you get booze when you arrive.

 

Warm-up ritual before you go on stage:

Walking around a little with my hands on my back, or just a nice, cold beer.

 

Favorite food/drink:

Mediterranean or oriental kitchen.

 

Favorite movie/series:

Bambi/ Friends.

 

Favorite reads:

Erik Krikke

 

Favorite cartoon/comic:

TINTIN!

 

Favorite game/sports:

Racket sports or cycle racing and of course FIFA!

 

Your kind of heaven:

A world where all popstars make music together with some sort of a driving fridge, completely filled with booze, always by my side.

 

Your worst vice:.

I want to be liked.

 

What you’d do with a shitload of money:

Buy a really nice, old Porsche and drive as far as I can.

 

Hobbies, or rather what you do on tour to pass long travel/wait times:

Play old shitty games on my iPad or watch Friends all over again.

 

Place(s) you’d like to visit:

If the other boys weren’t so scared of flying, I would say Australia, South-Asia, South-America, all across the USA, etc, but well… Pussies, hihi.

 

Wise words:

Carpe Diem

 

Last but not least:

Is there something you need??! Ehmmm, a big ass Hammond?

 

Things to know about me:

I love a fresh, clean bed. I can’t handle maximum speed. I always check the internet for things I can’t afford. When I open a bag of crisps, not one will survive.
