What’s your favourite kind of mu­sic?

I like mu­sic that moves me and gets my creative juices flow­ing. I ap­pre­ci­ate good mu­sic I can re­late to – fast or slow beats.

Mu­si­cian you ad­mire and would like to host at Rixos The Palm Dubai?

I ad­mire artists who made it to the top and in­flu­enced oth­ers with their aura, like Fred­die Mer­cury, John Len­non and Michael Jack­son. Un­for­tu­nately they’ve all passed away, so I wouldn’t mind host­ing their fans in­stead.

A mem­o­rable mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence?

Do­ing the pogo dance to Pearl Jam’s

Rearviewmir­ror dur­ing the band’s World Tour in Is­tan­bul in 1996. Jumping up and down with lead singer Ed­die Ved­der and crew was fun.

Mu­sic you wake up to ev­ery morn­ing?

My daugh­ter Eva’s screams and shouts ac­com­pa­nied by var­i­ous nurs­ery rhymes.

Per­fect song for a Fri­day brunch?

Amer­i­can rock band Faith No More’s

Easy. Even though it’s about Sun­day, it works on Fri­days as well.
