Steve DiStanislao was thrilled at being invited to answer some fan questions, so please make them good ones.
Again, I won’t consider long lists of questions. I only want a maximum of three questions per person, so please don’t abuse Stevie’s kindness by taking advantage of this unique opportunity.
I’d much prefer it if everyone gets an equal chance of getting a question answered, so long lists of questions will be deleted immediately, even if they contain some really good questions.
All questions (well, almost) will be published here for everyone to see, so please read what’s already been asked before submitting questions of your own. The prevention of unnecessary repetition is always a good thing.
Not all questions will be answered, of course, so please try and make them as interesting as possible.
The latest answers from Guy about his career might help give you an idea of what makes it through my blog sieve.
There’s a chat going on right now, if you can make it. Everyone’s welcome.
On Lemon Jelly’s remarkable album ‘Lost Horizons’ I spotted your name in the credits of the wonderful track entitled ‘Nice Weather for Ducks’. What was your role on this track? Did you play bass? (Julie Gunn Davies)
Yes, isn’t that what I usually do? My duck call isn’t up to much.
Being somewhat of an Icehouse fan, I have to ask how that experience compares with working with David and the Floyd? (Erik)
I haven’t got the first idea of how to answer that. But before the first show of this tour, Jon Carin and Steve DiStanislao got to be in Icehouse for a day, as I’d been asked to do a TV show with Iva in Germany, and he asked if I could put a band together. So we went to Munchen and mimed ‘Hey Little Girl’.
Who was the one person that influenced you the most? (Renee B.)
Do you plan to do a little more on the singing side? I would love to hear more of your distinctive voice. I know it’s more yelling than singing that you do, but I love it. (Karen)
Why, thank you, Karen. I’m only really happy as a backing singer, to be honest. Unless it’s shouting, of course.
What was your most musically challenging session gig? (EchoesBob)
I remember doing something for Jeff Beck a few years back that kept me on my toes. When I played on the score of ‘The Last Action Hero’, Michael Kamen did actually ask me to play something that, after a few tries, I had to confess I just couldn’t.
What is your most memorable gig and why? (Tim C)
Venice with Pink Floyd. Because we were on a bloody great oil rig in the lagoon.
Are you involved with your father-in-law’s next album? (KenF)
I hope so.
