3. What’s your worst date experience? When you ask your date “What music do you like?” and they answer “Whatever’s on the radio” … (Actually that’s never really happened to me, thank God!)
4. What’s the movie that made you cry? The Colour Purple. I have the movie soundtrack on vinyl and still listen to occasionally.
5. Which song do you sing in the car? Highway Star by Deep Purple. Or Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf. Or Driving In My Car by Madness. Or In Your Car by The Dugites. Ah, it’s too hard to pick one! 6. What’s your favourite movie or TV series you never admit to loving? Charmed. Ah Phoebe (Alyssa Milano)! 7. What’s the most sentimental thing you own? A rosecoloured vintage woollen blanket from my early childhood, passed on from my parents, which is older than me!
8. What was the last thing y you Googled?
A list of movies being p presented for the Alliance F Française French Film Festival in Brisbane. B
9. What’s your most embarrassing e moment? Singing the National Anthem at Hyundai ALeague Grand Final at the Telstra Dome, Melbourne, in 2007. Having h heard horror stories of singers b being fed the wrong song into their in-ear monitors at similar events, I opted for old school floor-style foldback monitors for the gig. Which sounded great during soundcheck, but by the time of the actual gig with a full stadium, I couldn’t hear a thing and had to blindly guess where to start singing, and at what tempo, in a nationally televised live performance.
10. What’s on your bucket list? Recreating Ernesto (Che) Guevara de la Serna’s journey through South
America as outlined in the movie
“The Motorcycle Diaries”.
