WHEN YOU THINK OF BRIAN WHAT'S THE FIRST WORD THAT COMES TO MIND? Genuine
IF YOU COULD MEET BRIAN WHAT WOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD SAY TO HIM? Have Satch and Vai forgiven you for accidentally stepping on your pedal in
Seville and causing awful tri-tone solo's ? Ha ha......cool and funny !
IF YOU COULD HAVE BRIAN OVER FOR ONE DAY WHAT WOULD YOU DO FOR THAT DAY? I'd have to ask him how such different personalities can get on in a band
and stuff like that. It would be great to get an insight into his experience
with recording, song construction, inspirations, etc. Sorry, boring musician
WHAT SONG WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO SEE BRIAN COVER? This is going to be odd.
I'd like to see what he'd do with Paul Weller's "You Do Something To Me".
WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE BRIAN COLLABORATE WITH IN THE FUTURE? Ooh,
difficult one. Eric Johnson would be a real interesting
possibilty as they are both so musically and sonically concious.
WHAT IS YOUR MUSICAL TALENT? Guitar, vocals, keyboards, a bit of drums, and
various other instruments. Basically, all my cash
goes on guitar gear ! My guitar tech (until
recently) used to set up Brian's 'Old Lady'
(currently does Angus and Malcolm Young's
(AC/DC) and various other famous folks ! :)
YOUR WEBSITE: www.beans.force9.co.uk (hardly a thing on it as I don't have

rave and rap.

MESSAGE FOR THE FANS: "There will NEVER be a better band than Queen, agreed
MESSAGE TO BRIAN: "Brian, thank you, you've given light to my life and so
many other people that I've met. In particular my friend who has a photo of
her playing the Old Lady and a framed letter that you kindly took the time
to write from a tour. After such a long time in the music business, it is a
testament to you that you treat your fans in such an incredible way to make
them feel special. The very best of health and happiness to you my friend.
