Singer, Guitarist and Keys
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
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.
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 ...
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...
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).
Come and listen to our music :-)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
Enjoy our music !
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)
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.
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
"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.
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.
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.
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.
In June 2016. A few month before I met Thierry in a cultural center, participating in guitar
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.
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.
Any stage. Most important is to have a great public. Of course it would be thrilling to stand on
a big and famous stage.
