What’s your favourite kind of mu­sic?

Give me James Tay­lor, Harry Chapin or Joni Mitchell and I’m just fine. It’s the sound of my youth and since I’ve never grown up it’s per­fect.

Mu­sic that re­minds you of Dubai?

Feel­ing Hot Hot Hot by The Mer­ry­men. It re­minds me of a gig I did in Dubai once when the air con­di­tion­ing broke down.

Mu­sic you grew up lis­ten­ing to?

My par­ents were big mu­si­cal the­atre fans and I know all the Richard Rogers and Os­car Ham­mer­stein II stuff by heart.

The first CD/record you bought?

This makes me feel so old. It was an LP, Sly and the Fam­ily Stone’s Great­est Hits. How can you not love a band that uses the lyrics – “Boom shaka-laka-laka”?

What’s your all-time favourite song?

Joe Jack­son’s Can­cer. It’s one of the best pi­ano so­los.
