Q & A:

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party:

Dave Grohl, Charlize Theron, George Lucas, Irène Jacob, Cormac McCarthy, Victoria Smurfit

What is the worst job you've ever done?

De-rigging 2 x Smart Masts, in the dark, on top of an overflowing cesspit at a 5 star hotel between Nice and Monaco, and having to ask for assistance from the other engineers on site as I couldn’t do it on my own

If you could edit your past, what would you change?

To have realised that I should have taken up cycling around north Wales much earlier in life than just in the last 6 months before moving away

How did you end up doing what you do?

Was trapped for a week in the most boring conference ever at Olivetti near Hindehead, turning a video camera on and off every day, with Paul Dobson, at the same conference, operating the sound. At the end of the week Paul had decided to start his own business, Dobson Sound, and I decided to work with him as a freelancer . . . . over 20 years later and am still happy to be working with Paul

Proudest work achievement?

Providing the PA for the route from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey for the funeral of HRH the Queen Mother on a 7 day lead time


Best concert / gig you have ever been to?

Zoo TV : U2 at Wembly (Dobson didn’t do the sound) Kraftwerk 1- 8 Tate Modern (Where Dobson did the sound)

Favorite band?

Foo Fighters . . . . no, no Ian Brown . . . hold on . .. . Underworld!! . . . . or, Primal Scream . . . .Kasabian . .. oh no what about The Prodigy . . . . Cannot pick!! + Blur / Gorillaz / Damon Albarn . ..

The track to play to show off your eclectic tastes?

Slummin' It (Eno Mix) By Karl Hyde

The track you wish you'd never heard?

Acid Pants by Orbital

The track you'd play at sunset in Ibiza?
