Four Questions

It’s time for another episode of Four Questions! Here are this week’s questions:

1. If you were Slash, who would you pick as the next lead singer in Velvet Revolver?

2. How many guitars do you currently own?

3. What guitar do you plan to buy next?

4. What are your five “desert island” CDs?

Here are my answers:

1. This one was easy for me since I was a Soundgarden fan in the 90s…Chris Cornell. I’d love to see how he fits in with Slash and the rest of the Velvet crew.

2. Including my bass, I currently own five guitars: 1 acoustic, 1 classical, 2 electrics, and 1 bass.

3. This changes weekly for me based on what music I’m currently listening to! ;) Ultimately, I’ll probably buy a semi-hollow body at some point in the future, since I ended up returning Lucille.

4. The 5 CDs I’d want to have if I were trapped on a desert island would be: 1) Stevie Ray Vaughan – Texas Flood 2) Metallica – Master of Puppets 3) AC/DC – Back in Black 4) Led Zeppelin – IV 5) B.B. King – Live at the Regal. This list is also likely to change each week, but these five albums continue to move me every time I listen to them.

1. I’d like to see them pick an unknown singer.

2. Being a guitar newbie, I only have one. An Epi LP Standard.

3. I’d like to pick up a Strat at some point.

4. This would change pretty frequently for me too. Today, it would be: 1) SRV – In Step 2) Joe Bonamassa – Had To Cry Today 3) Ben Fold – Songs for Silverman 4) Tool – Aenima 5) Failure – Fantastic Planet

1. I love Slash, but I’m not really into Velvet Revolver or that whole scene. I’d suggest Robert Plant!

2. My six-string acoustic guitar Maggie, my 12-string acoustic Big Barda, my Epiphone Casino Penny Century, my Epi Les Paul Negra, and my Fender Jazz bass Myrtle.

3. My next guitar is going to be some manner of acoustic-electric, preferably a Gibson or an Epiphone.

4. Desert Island discs:
1 – Rolling Stones – “Sticky Fingers”.
2 – Public Enemy – “It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back”.
3 – The Beatles – “Abbey Road”
4 – The Stone Roses – “The Stone Roses”
5 – Stan Getz/Joao Gilberto – “Getz/Gilberto”

@Dustin – 1) An unknown singer would be nice, but I’m not sure how well an unknown singer would fit into a group with the years that the players in Velvet Revolver have. It’s an interesting proposition, though.
2) It’s only a matter of time before you start building up your collection ;)
3) A Strat is a great choice!
4) Tool’s a good choice. Aenima was about the last album of their’s that had an impact on me.

@Isaac – 1) Robert Plant would be awesome. I didn’t even think of that! :)
2) I love the names for your guitars!
3) I’ve never owned a Gibson or Epiphone acoustic-electric. Although I was really looking at the Epiphone L-00 a few weeks ago.
4) Great (and diverse) selection!

1) Amanda Overmyer.

2) Five.

3) I’d like an Eric Johnson Strat or a Hamer Monaco III. Both are expensive, so I may build a semi-hollow Strat with Warmoth wood, Sperzel & Wilkinson hdwr & Lollar or Fralin pickups.

4) This moment…
A – Hendrix – Band of Gypsies
B – Jeff Beck – Blow by Blow
C – Scott Henderson – Tore Down House
D – Eric Johnson – Ah Via Musicom
E – Robin Trower – For Earth Below

@Stratoblogster – It’d be interested to see how a woman would fit into the dynamic of Velvet Revolver. The Eric Johnson Strat would be nice. Great list of desert island discs! I’ll have to check out Scott Henderson’s Tore Down House. I haven’t heard it before. The rest are required albums for Strat lovers.

1. NOT Sebastian Bach

2. Tres (3 in Spanish)

3. Some kind of PRS.

4. Oh man…

…did you have to ask that…

…how ’bout one, 5 is too much…

…Miles Davis’ “Some Kind of Blue.” Probably the only one that would help me get through being alone in a dessert island.

@IG – 1) I couldn’t agree more. Anybody but Bach.
3) Excellent choice! I love my PRS.
4) Some Kind of Blue is a great album; great choice!

1) Janice Joplin
2) Er hang on…. 21
3) My wife says I plan to buy none
4) A bit of everything:
The Beatles – Sgt Peppers
Led Zeppelin II
Newton Faulkner – Hand built by robots
Tori Amos – Little Earthquake
Rimski Korsakof – Sheherezade

@Derek – 1) That’d certainly be an interesting arrangement!
2) 21?!? That’s just getting started :)
3) The boss has spoken!
4) Hmm. I’ve never heard of Newton Faulkner or Rimski Korsakof. I’ll have to check them out!

Thanks for stopping by!
