1975 Rush played at Seneca College in Toronto as the backup band to Nazareth. Great Concert it was.
What are you looking for from Fandalism?
Anything that sounds like David Gilmour and Jimmy Page's styles. Michael Oldfield is the type of music format I like playing. Longer with mix of sound/tempos.
What gear do you use?
Gibson Les Paul 50's Tribute, Yamaha Electric Acoustic, Takimine nylon electric with tube preamp, Epiphone Les Paul with e-tune, Roland A-49 Midi Controller Keyboard, Zoom R8 8-track digital recorder, Zoom G5 guitar effects with effects pedal and tube preamp built in.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Jimmy Page, David Gilmour, Neil Young, Andres Segovia & Michael Oldfield
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Never. Just jamming in the garage with friends and/or backup tracks
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
David Gilmour - Slow trance style blues including steel slide guitar (ie One Of These Days). Hard heavy riffs to blow open a relatively sombre song (ie: Comfortably Numb and Sorrow). The guitar work on Endless River is great and a great overview of Gilmour's Pink Floyd musical input over the years all on one album save for the fact there is no real heavily overdriven lead work. Gilmour's most recent album is also excellent.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
My garage and at parties with those who care to jam.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Tough choice really The Wall (Pink Floyd), Physical Graffitti (Led Zepplin), Tommy (The Who) or Tubular Bells (Mike Oldfield). Love them all and have never tired of them. I guess the Wall because you get more out of it (2 lps ). Also the mix of music makes a long stay on deserted island more palatable.
