Hi Bt ,would love to know why most of the early tracks had Robin playing lead picking strings, eg, food for thought,King,Earth dies, and many more, reminded me of ALbatross from cant think of the band at the mo, Can Robin just throw some of that stuff in or does he have to go through the rest of the guys, just sounds so fresh.
Not sure if i have asked a proper question,just a great thread and thank you

Okay 10 questions some very serious some a bit querky


This one is for Norman - (he may not want o answer okay if not)
Did he feel he may have lost his place in the band after Conrad did such a great job whilst he was away?


For Duncan - How bad are the nervs now before a gig?


Earl - Does he feel like the young hip member of the band, or has Tony now got that job

Tony - Did he ever dream he would make it into such a massive band?



Robin - Does he feel he has to be extra protective of Duncan?

Astro - Can he play a non percussion instrument, did he play the triangle at school ?


BT - Do you ever get sick of answering questions?

Jimmy - How many pairs of drimsticks do you think you have givcen away over the years?


Martin - When the band took you on did you ever think they would be so ready to accept your fetish ways?

Laurence - Are you scared to close your eyes whilst traveling on Pikey One?

I know you are not really into awards as such :P but...........

If you were nominated for an award, which one would be preferable
Voted on by the public or voted on by fellow musicians/artists?
presuming you are all of the same opinion I don't mind who answers

Over the years ur kit has changed a few times so i was wondering which kit is ur favourite and why do u change ur set-up every so often, how do u get that distinctive sound from ur snare?


cheers Jim-bob

take this opportunity to ask a question of a particular band member...state who the question is for and then ask the question...we will get them filmed and posted.

Be imaginative...remember JB and myself have answered so much stuff here so pick on...i mean ask the other guys stuff you REALLY NEED TO KNOW, and lets make it candid, personal, investigative, journalistic..remember the guys don't have to answer, they can decline to answer so expect nothing and you may be surprised...I am asking now so that they can be shot and prepared for a feature on the new web site I'll wait until next Sunday before printing off the questions so you have a whole week..No rush.
are you serious
