Did you ever see Marc Bolan/T.Rex live, and if so, how did it compare to your concerts?
“My approach with these gigs will be one of a more settled and relaxed appearance, as we’ll be sitting down as one with the audience. I’ll answer questions some may want to ask, whether they be about T.Rex or T.Rextasy.”
What should the audience expect to see?
What is your favourite song to perform from this show?
What preparation do you need to do to get ready for the gig?
“I try to get to each venue in good time as I have a sequence of events that I follow through, such as on arrival I go into my dressing room, unpack my clothing and make-up, and set it all out in order. I then go out to eat. It takes our roadie about 90mins to unload and set up all the equipment, then another 30mins for the engineer to mic up, so it gives us time to chill before sound-check. In the band, we all have our specific sounds that we require in each stage monitor, and after that, we sort out the out-front sound. With our regular sound-engineer, this normally takes only about 30mins, which is great. After sound-check, it’s backstage to sort out my band merchandise, and then I normally play music on my I-Pod which relaxes me while I’m putting on my make-up and change into stage clothing. Then I go to side-of-stage to check the tuning of all my guitars, then believe it or not, the time has disappeared and it’s showtime!!!”
