What is your must-have travel item when you’re on tour?
- Flask filled with single malt scotch

 

What is your favorite part of the process when you’re recording or preparing to record an album?
- It could be a number of things but if I had to narrow it down I would say when I or another member of the band come up with a simple melody and then we all add our influences to it and slowly it becomes an epic score or soaring chorus or a catchy lead line. Amazing!
