George Tsiones: 4 Questions
Q: What’s your earliest musical memory?
When I was 5 years old I distinctly remember being irritated by the yodeling to a cowbell in that Stealers Wheel tune “Stuck in the Middle With You“.
PS: I love that song now and have played it in a couple of different bands.
Q: What’s the most unusual instrument you’ve played?
When my oldest son was learning violin I bought a cheap electric violin to try to help teach him. Its made of resin with no thought whatsoever to playability, but I still get it out every now and then to tool with it.
Q: Do you have a good luck charm or some kind of ritual before a performance?
No charms, but I pray beforehand if I’m really sweating a gig and will give a prayer thanks afterwards if things don’t go too badly.
Q: Share with us some of your musical guilty pleasures!
Guilty because its usually synth bass instead of the real thing. I love that plastic sound with some Euro-diva wailing over it.
