1. What are you currently up to? (E.g. touring/studio, etc.)

Wrapping up the Lost In The Translation World Tour, next up, release
of the Soul SirkUS debut & then tour to begin early 2005.

2. Could you take us through some personal highlights of the new
album 'Lost In Translation'?

The overall freedom of doing the album(s) I want to do. I have a
respect, control as well as trust to do all the things that are
churning in me. It's nice to have the background I do as the label
I'm with don't interfere with my creativity.

3. 'Lost In Translation' is possibly the heaviest record you've done -
was this a conscious decision or was this how the songwriting turned

Absolutely, I wanted something meatier than Prism or Love Parade, The
songs have a lot of weight live, something I wanted more of for this

4. What have been the most memorable live shows for you and why?

Spain & Brasil, the 2 countries have a hot blooded passion for music,
love & life, we had some memorable moments in both.

5. Soul Sirkus - the album is out in December and is eagerly awaited.
How did the band come together and is this a long term project or
a 'one off'?

It's a rather long story that can be found pretty much everywhere on
the web now, it started with Neal & I, the rest came together very
fast & now we're ready to make our mark.

6. What are the future plans for Talisman?

Don't know yet, but I do know we will always have some life in that
band in some form or another.

7. How did the recent Australian tour go and what were the highs/lows
of the tour?

It was all great, a learning experience as well as a prosperous
1...I'll certainly return soon, but know what avenues to attack

8. Have you seen any increased interest/demand for melodic rock over
the past few years or do you feel it's a genre that has seen it's
glory days?

It's up & down, it all depends on people's economic situations
really. People want to support their music but I find the same story
everywhere, finances have a lot to do with attendances, especially
when competing against other artists the same nights or weeks apart
from each other, this forces the fans to choose 1 or 2 as they can't
afford the lot of us. But when it's good, it's really good.

9. Of all the songs and albums you sung on down the years which have
been the most memorabble and why? Who would you still like to
write/perform with?

Most memorable, Soul SirkUS, would like to collaborate with....Prince.

10. Message to your fans...

Chapter 1 of JSS completed, Chapter 2, about to begin!!!
