THIERRY

Singer, Guitarist and Keys

 

Q: Thierry when did you started to play guitar?

It's a long time ago, When I was 14. I discovered the guitar with my brother

who had just acquired a superb Fender Startocaster. I was immediately

seduced by this instrument that seemed to come straight from another

age.

 

Q: How and when did you become a member of "Foggy Stuff"

 

I created Foggy Stuff in 2003. After playing in several projects, I thought it

was time to create my own project. At the time, I was playing with other

people. An old friend who played bass had contacted me to see if I was

still playing music. Gradually, the group found its first members and was

formed around people coming from different regions. 

 

Q: Which group inspires you the most?

 

The band that influenced me the most is certainly "Dire straits". Mark

Knopfler's guitar is for me a reference. There's also David Gilmour of Pink

Floyd, but also many others like Andrew Latimer of Camel ...

 

Q: What is your favorite song and why?

 

There are so many that I just can't mention them all ... I like the songs all

those bands do not necessarily at the first listening, but you know, like

wine, those songs should be assessed after several listening... 


Q: On which stage would you like to play one day and which band would you like to have as first part?

 

Madison Square Garden, Wembley, why not (laughs) But hey ! We are not

enough rock stars...

We will play at all the scenes where the audience will be there to enjoy our

music. As the first group, Foggy Stuff, opening for a famous artist (laughs).


Q: Anything else?

 

Come and listen to our music :-)






DENIS

BASS

 

 

Q: Denis, when did you started playing bass?

 

I always loved music. when i was a child, I learned the piano and rhythm

guitar basics at the school of music. Then, after getting some time off to

romp on Drums, I wanted to test the bass, this instrument that intrigued me

(laughs). I started at the age of 17, Thierry lent me his bass and that's how

it all started.

 

Q: How and when did you become a member of "Foggy Stuff"

 

After several different band line-ups and configurations, Thierry needed a

rythm guitarist. As his nephew, he asked me to join in 2013, Then, with the

arrival of Dylan on drums and the fact that I also played bass, he wanted to

test me as a bass player, which proved to be very successful after a few

rehearsals. Dylan and I quickly came to an agreement when it comes to

playing style, which allowed us to build a solid rythm structure. 

 

Q: Which group inspires you the most?

 

I listen to many bands with different styles (Coldplay, Muse, Deep Purple,

The Doors, The Police ...), but one of the groups that inspires me most is

The Who, a band that, in my opinion, revolutionized Rock'n Roll as well as

music in general. Such powerful melodies that make people shiver, even to

this day. I really admire John Entwistle's playing, he will always be a

reference to me. 

 

Q: What is your favorite song and why?

 

My choice may not be unique, but one of my favorite tracks is Won't Get

Fooled Again by The Who, First, the message that the band wants to

convey is still relevant and it will probably still be even in 30-50 years

. which I find to be remarkable considering how old the song is. Secondly

and most importantly, you can hear the massive outburst with all those

instruments, with the legendary Organ sound. 

 

Q: On which stage would you like to play one day and which band would you like to have for first part?

 

Playing at festivals such as Rock Werchter, Hyde Park, ... would be

awesome. But honestly, I'm happy as long as the audience appreciates

and enjoys our music. ...Though Muse or Coldplay would definitely attract

a lot of people (laughs). 

 

Q: Anything else?

 

Enjoy our music !




DYLAN

DRUMS

 

 

Q: Dylan, when did you started playing drums?

 

It was 5 years ago. I knew I wanted to make music but my parents were not

too keen on having a drum kit at home to avoid the noise, considering how

loud those can be. I then started to hit my desk with chopsticks, and after a

while my parents bought me a music video game with an electric drum kit.

That one didn't last very long... (laughs) 

 

Q: How and when did you become a member of "Foggy Stuff"

 

I was thierry's neighbor at the time, I trained a lot in my room which was

not soundproofed, so Thierry naturally heard me. One day he came to my

house and asked me if I wanted to play in the band. They needed a

drummer, and I was looking for a band, which was very convenient for the

both of us (laughs). We started band pratice sessions together, things went

well and there was a good vibe between us, so I decided to stay.

 

Q: Which group inspires you the most?

 

For the moment I like to listen to Within Temptation. Generally I like music

with real instruments and no drum machine. ...No I'm not a frustrated

drummer (laughs). 

 

Q: What is your favorite song and why?

 

"Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynrd Skynrd because I find very fascinating

melody and I've enjoyed learning this song when i was a beginner.

I enjoy myself to play drums on this track.

Q: On which stage would you like to play one day and which band you like tohave for first part?

For me, playing on all kinds of stages is important.The most important

thing is to play music with my friends in front of an audience that

appreciates our songs and our Show. If I had to choose a first part, I'd play

with the Foo Fighters. 


Q: Anything else?

I would like to say that Music is not just a passion. This is something that

we, musicians, have deep inside us, in our guts. It's a part of me.

 

 




DANIEL

GUITAR

 

 

Q: Daniel, when did you started playing guitar?

 

Around 21 year old. I played "alone" for +/- 4 years and then stopped due to professional

reasons and lack of time. Around 2008 I started playing classical guitar in academy but soon

came back to electric guitar. 

 

Q: How and when did you become a member of "Foggy Stuff"

 

In June 2016. A few month before I met Thierry in a cultural center, participating in guitar

workshop.  

 

Q: Which group inspires you the most?

 

I have always been a great fan of Dire Straits, group such as green day and guitar heroes such

as Eric Clapton or BB King.  

 

Q: What is your favorite song and why?

 

There is so many song I could name. 2 songs I particularly like are nothing else matters

(Metallica) and sweet child of mine (Guns and roses). A album I can't stop listening to for 20

years is Eric Clapton's Unplugged. 



Q: On which stage would you like to play one day and which band you like to have for first part?


Any stage. Most important is to have a great public. Of course it would be thrilling to stand on

a big and famous stage.
