Post Jeff Martin Q&A! Leave your questions here!
Hello, all. I talked to Jeff Martin and asked him if it was okay for us to ask him ANYTHING.

FAIR WARNING: You can ask him ANYTHING but please refrain from bringing up things that could be sensitive or disrespectful. We all know what that is so don't be a dick. I'll monitor this thread best way I can. Ask him anything from his favorite food, to his most embarrassing experience on stage, etc. Racer X questions? Drummer questions? BRITNEY MIC QUESTIONS?

I'll leave this thread on for a week or so to collect questions and have Jeff answer them. I'll combine similar and related questions as well.

Questions away!

Do you keep in touch with anyone from Racer X a lot?

Do you still have that Ibanez PGM that Paul gave you, and do you play it?
How's life treating you these days?
Do you still hang out with the Racer X guys, and do you go to any of their shows when they're in town?

Can we expect you to take part in any big musical project from you, anytime soon ? Whether you sing, drum, or play the didgeridoo.
Do you keep in touch with Rob Halford, Judas Priest and in particular Scott Travis ? Any news with these guys ?
Will you reunite Surgical Steel ;) ?

Post Re: Jeff Martin Q&A! Leave your questions here!
Since a new RX album didn't happen during the last "few" years, do you have lots of unreleased song (lyrics) material lying around?
Before recording e.g. "Getting Heavier", do you usually practice a lot, doing lots of vocal exercises etc.?
Do you have a vocal practice routine?

Any chance of a sequel to "The Fool" in the works?

What is your proudest creation as a carpenter?

Boobs or Butts? :lol:

I don't mean to be an ass, but please don't ask questions like this. I don't want to set a precedent and have people ask him for signatures.

I WILL allow this, though, if Jeff still has extra copies of his solo album The Fool and is willing to sell and sign them :)

Here are my personal set of questions:

- You're my favorite lyricist. Dead Man's Shoes and Time Before The Sun could be short stories or flash fictions with just the lyrics alone. How do you go about with writing words and melodies for songs?
- What do you like more: singing or drumming?

If the answer will be no iam ok with that.. or even if you dont want to ask him this question...i just thought that it would be cool to have the superheroes album autographed by all members and than fix it on the wall :- ).

No I just mean I don't want everyone else to ask him for an autograph as well if he gives you one. I said I'll allow it if he's still selling his CD which would benefit him as well :D

You seemed to use that Mic that wraps your around your head live (at least in snowball of Doom). I would say the benefit is that you can be hands free but you held the mic a lot at least when singing hard. Do you prefer this type of mic or was it a one time thing? (Sorry, I'm not familiar with what you have been using lately).

My questions:

1. Which are your top 5 bands of all time?
2. Which is your all time favorite album? Why?
3. Can you recall the moment you said to yourself "I wanna be a musician"? Was it to get laid, to earn money, or just for "art´s sake"?
4. I know you´re a huge Bonzo fan, so what do you think about the Led Zeppelin "Celebration Day" release? Any cool stories with Jason you wanna share?
5. Of all the 80´s shred-shrapnel guitar players, which one was:
a. the most worried about his hair
b. the best band you saw/heard
c. the most annoying one
6. If you could make a dream band alive, which one would be in it?
7. Please talk about the "I Am The Walrus" cover you did on "The Fool". For me, it´s the best cover I´ve heard of that tune. It´s amazing!
8. YOU ROCK!

Did Surgical Steel ever record anything with Harley Van Kirk on lead vocals?

Did Surgical Steel ever record anything with you on drums?

What's the most outrageous lie you have been told during your music career? And the most outrageous one you've told yourself?
What's the best road/studio story you've never mentioned in an interview before from the bands you've been in?
If you had your time again, what would you do differently in your music career?
Did anyone really think the 80s big hair and spandex look was a good one, or did you think then it was horrible?
What was it like for the singer on a Shrapnel album - did Varney have a lot to say to you?
What's the music you listen to that would destroy your metal credibility forever if people knew?
What's the interview question you never want to be asked again?
What's the interview question that no-one's ever asked, but should have? And it's answer? :)
