| You have a tour over the UK planned for people who haven't been to watch you yet what can they expect from your live show? |
It's a proper medicine show, it's like a pantomime, it's the full lot!
If you were to have some one to come on stage and join you who would it be?
It would have to be Elvis although we would have to put some smelly stuff on him he is bound to be a little smelly by now don't you think. It would have to be someone big none of these pop singers or any of the other non sense!
Not including Alabama 3 how do you take today's music scene in general?
I listen to a lot of house music, there isn't many guitar groups I like, I like Coldplay though I think the lead singer is a really good writer good at ballads, I like ballads but other than that there isn't much, I got a great remix the other week a remix of Paul Oakenfold's Starry Eyed Surprise by Josh Wink. When I go and buy records I usually buy things like that, Josh Wink is a mad genius. I was watching the television the other day and The Datsuns were on I just thought wow that's Deep Purple and they have shrunk, but then I noticed it wasn't Deep Purple it was a group of teenagers. I don't really have much to say about other peoples music at least they are having a go so anybody who tries
I take my hat off to them, but when it comes to personal preference I don't listen to many Guitar bands, I listen to a lot of Hip Hop and Jazz. I just bought an old classic mix of Kenny Dope Gonzalez with all his classics that is a brilliant mix.
Power in the Blood is Alabama's new album what are your favorite tracks?
I don't know my favorite, it keeps changing but at the moment it is bullet proof, I think that is really good.
How did you come up with the title?
It's an old very popular prosperterian hymn. Also it is an indication of all this relative hysteria that is going on at present, there's a lot of religious forever.
Your website is fantastic did you have anything to do with the design?
Because we have been so busy with the album we haven't really had chance to get on it and spend much time on it, but we are going to take more time over it when he have a little more time. What we did, we wanted to set something up that was kind of like a computer games as well so people could have 5 minutes of amusement on it as well, we are going to set up individual sites for each member and then tie them into people we knows site.
