Musical tastes: I'm a straight ABC (both the 1980s British Beat Combo, and also Anything But Country)
Movies: Easy answer is "yes", but primarily there are a few items I like more than others. I'm a big fan of John Hughes' movies from the 1980s, and help run an 80s-dedicated movie website in my spare time (http://www.fast-rewind.com). Favorite genre overall is probably sci-fi, and I also love the Carry On series of British comedies which ran for 31 instalments from the late fifties to 1994.
Drum Stuff: Mapex VX kit in Deep Coffee wrap, supplemented with either a 1970s Premier 2000 or a Pork Pie Big Black Brass snare (both with Evans Genera Dry heads). Zildjian cymbals (albeit not high end stuff), Vic Firth sticks,and remo Pinstripes on the toms..
Band: Riser - a tight four piece, supplemented by a secret weapon in Dave our sound guy, who has 20 years plus experience working in the industry, and has previously run sound for the Stones, Yes, Genesis, Camel, amongst others. Our PA rig is customised Allen and Heath, designed by Dave and Pete, and the sounds we make are crisp, sharp, loud, and cool....
Other stuff: I'm an avid reader, and follow most sports (mainly 'proper' football!). I'm a regular at a small local church, and will sometimes play drums or percussion when required. I'm married with two daughters and a rabbit....
What I'd like people to say about me at my funeral: "Look - he's still breathing!"
