1. When did you arrive in Hungary and what brought you here?
I first landed here about 14 years ago. I tripped over it, best accident I ever had.

2. Have you ever been an expatriate elsewhere?
Yes, I lived in Tokyo for two years. That was an amazing experience, couldn’t be more different from Budapest.

3. What surprised you most about Hungary?
Apart from the fact that I found another home where surnames come first? Well, I probably shouldn’t say the beautiful girls and the fantastic summers, so……

4. Friends are in Budapest for a weekend - what must they absolutely see and do?
The tastes, the sights, the ruin bars, the baths and of course Palinka!

5. What is your favourite Hungarian food?
I don’t think I have a favourite, its great comfort food.

6. What is never missing from your refrigerator?
Erős Pista

7.What is your favourite Hungarian word?
Unfair question, I can’t put that in the press…but boy can they swear.

8. What do you miss most from home?
After all these years not very much, I’m more likely to miss something from here when I pop back over to the UK


9. What career other than yours would you love to pursue?
None, I adore my work, busy at the moment writing and recording the new Tuesday Night Rodeo album with a great bunch of guys. Pressure is on, we release on December 1st!

10. What's a job you would definitely never want?
I don’t think people should think that way, in these days of high unemployment anything is better than nothing. Personal pride should not come into it.

11. Where did you spend your last vacation?

12. Where do you hope to spend your next holiday?
Probably Balaton again, won’t get much of a chance to get away for a while

13. Apart of temptation what can't you resist?
Mmm, let me think about that one.

14. What was your favourite band, film, or hobby as a teen?
Marc Bolan & T-Rex. Seeing them on TOTP made me pick up my first guitar.

15. Red wine or white?

16. Book or movie?
Movie, I don’t get enough time to read

17. Morning person or night person?
Both! But when I’m working on a project definitely mornings.

18. Which social issue do you feel most strongly about?
What is happening to the world? Its population have gone mad.

19. Buda or Pest side?

20. What would you say is your personal motto?
I’m as good as the last song I wrote
