Favorite artist: An impossible question to answer!. Simply too many to mention.

Best label in the world: Elusive Sound/ Dunk

Best concert ever: So, so many highlights. I’ll have to go with Anathema back in 1994 in my hometown. Raw, heavy, emotive and rough around the edges, but still an unforgettable experience.

10 Albums for the month-long-stay on the tiny island:

Best joke you always tell: I’ve a memory like a sieve when recollecting jokes. How about: I got my wife a fridge for her birthday. I can’t wait to see her face light up when she opens it!!

Best Beyoncé song: I googled it, and it said “Crazy In Love”. That’ll do!

Favorite Drink: Ice cold, creamy headed Guinness or Murphys.

Most important piece of advice to tell your 20-year-old-self: Don’t take life too serious, too soon - there’s plenty of time for that. Enjoy the moment.
