40. Funny concert moment?
Being too old to be in the Marilyn Manson mosh pit seemed funny at the time. While waiting for him to come on they were playing The White Album through the PA, and it seemed that me and my friends were the only ones who knew what it was (that said it probably isn't very "goth" to be singing along to Rocky Racoon).

No, because I'm not a cock.

53. What famous musician do you want to marry?

55. Any musician pet hates?
Freshly sculpted haircuts/jumping around like a tit/throwing your guitar over your shoulder and catching it when it comes round, I'm thinking Lost Prophets and the like... idiots. That and self-professions, for example Johnny Borrell's "as good as Dylan" rant. Whatever happened to humility?

    I do love Elliott's voice, I'm listening to him now funnily enough. It can just be a little weak at times (not on record obviously but if you've seen any live footage you'll know what I mean). But then I suppose that was part of his charm. Jeff Buckley however, was just a monster vocally, he was ridiculous! Just to re-cap, I definately love Elliott Smith!

    It's difficult to spot a one word quote without any intonation. Fair enough though.

    Thanks very much, you should have a go, it takes a while but if you're gonna waste an hour or so on something it may as well be music right? :)
