ME \m/

I love music, that's my way of life since my birth. Come rock'n'roll with me baby! (Or boy. But it's not very classy to say that in that sentence.)







What is music to you? What does it give you?

It gives me goosebumps. I love music, my way of life, I always have headphone with me, and when I listen to music, I'm always transported or transcended. MUSIC FOR LIFE.

What is your music dream?

I think, play in a band where I sing and play guitar. ('Cause, I would love to sing in a band, my voice is kind of special. I sing like Lemmy Kilmister and an Old bluesman from the 30's-40's and more maybe.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Change the way people think. If they could stop judging or talking without knowing, the world would be a better place.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I would say Madman from Ugly Kid Joe, on the album America's Least Wanted. (But I love any song on that damn album) Kind of a fun story, let me tell you. I was 5 years old I think, and I was at the library (A place when you could borrow comics, VHS (YEAH VHS), cd and more). So, I walk up to that cd, and I remember, I was so fascinated by the cover of that album, I asked my father and he said yes. That's was kind of a surprise. Thank you dad for that.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Johnny Cash. For Ever. After that, that's kind of messy. Motorhead, Airbourne, AC/DC, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis (My god I love him.) That's what cross my mind right now, but there is a lot and a lot and a lot more ! Come tchat with me, when can discuss bands and beer.

What inspires you to make music?

Anything. I find inspiration anywhere. I'm not a musician who likes to make covers, I love creating new stuff, I would'nt go so far as innovate, but I like to mix styles.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Do what the fuck you want with you life. If you want to be a professor, if you want to be an artist, do whatever you love.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I would love to make the audience forget about life, they just come to see the band and have a fuckin' great time.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

That's a hard question, because, every artist and label got a vision on music. Some are good, and maybe some are bad, I'm nobody to judge. But, I would love to see more band, like little band who deserve so much more attention, but no, if you're not like the other, nope, you can't be a musician.

What do you think of Drooble?

That's a fuckin' amazing website. I love anything about it.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

It rarely happens, but when I can't find inspiration, but that's just 1% on, 99% of the time i've got inspiration !

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

When I was in Paris, I have few different friends who have a band, and at every concert, I encourage them, scream, move, dance, anything I can.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Be like any other musician, without personalities. That's not a quality ? What ? Without kidding, I think the musician is not the problem, if he has a great personality and some talent and moves, everything gonna be fine. Record companies have to change their criteria far too restrictive. (Not all of course.)

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

ME Without joke I would say Dead Posey, Holly Henry (Love that women voice), and I will complete that when I think of bands I've got in my playlists.
