SAM MARGIN SINGER
I am happiest when ... I walk off stage and have a beer with family and friends. You wouldn’t know it but ... I’m terrified of public speaking. My most embarrassing moment ... when we played Triple J’s One Night Stand a few years back and it was our first time on TV live. My mind went blank in the first song and I forgot my lyrics. The last time I cried was ... every time I watch a movie on a long haul flight. The last book I read was ... A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. My favourite films are ... I love the first three [Jason] Bourne films [The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum]. I really want to ... go to Russia. My guilty pleasure is ... Vegemite on eggs. Not that guilty I guess. Life has taught me ... to be impatient. I’m about to ... learn some new songs for this album tour we’re doing. My first job was ... making pizzas. My most memorable (current job) work-related moment is … winning the Hottest 100. One of the best days of my life! What I enjoy most about my work is … playing live. Every show is different. And so is every crowd. It never gets boring.
