TURN-ONS: Humor, Lightness, Creativity, Eyes and eyebrows
DREAM GIG: Definitely Roskilde Festival, on a sunny day on one of the great tent stages. A dream of mine since my first visit there as a kid. The crowds are the best I’ve ever seen.
FAVORITE LYRIC: “I showed my heart to the doctor. He said I’d just have to quit, Then he wrote himself a prescription, your name was mentioned in it, Then he locked himself in a library shelf with the details of our honeymoon, And I hear from the nurse that he’s gotten much worse and his practice is all in a ruin”- Leonard Cohen
CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: An old acquaintance who used to jumped out and “Boo!” me every bloody day for at least a year. At work, in the darkness while opening the door to my flat, coming out of an elevator… He was actually crazy I found out a bit later. Crazy, funny and unstable. He’s doing alright these days.
SONG I WISH I WROTE: The Robots, Kraftwerk
5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Kate Bush, Stephen Merchant, David Bowie, Jack Nicholson & Lindsey Buckingham.
MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Radiohead in Berlin 2009, Porno for Pyros, Denmark 1993 or Afghan Whigs in London 1995. Still, being to quite a few great Metal shows as a kid was the ultimate concert experience. Thanks Dad for taking me to see Iron Maiden, AC/DC, Dio etc in the heydays of the 80s. Changed me completely, as a person and as a “fan”. And not any concert can have that impact ever again, how fantastic it may be.
I WROTE THIS SONG: Ola Frick together with co-writer and better half Carina Johansson Fric
