Artist Q&A

@JamminJavaMei's Q&A With Bobby Long


Where and when was your first show?   I played at a school show with our band, Grand Old Duke.  We got dressed in shorts and painted ourselves head to toe in paint.  The paint didn't dry, and we got paint all over the stage and onto others.  We were basically stupid.

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence?

Probably the Beatles.  Without doubt, my favorite band and as a kid they were all I listened to.  They have such a vast collection of work that it’s easy to forget some of the great songs they had written.

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?

Probably being on the bus when I was on tour with Steve Winwood.  He is one of my Dad’s favorites, and, as a kid, I listened to a lot of The Spencer Davis Group. I bothered him by asking so many questions, but he is such a gent and a kind man.

Favorite Food:  Sunday Roast Dinner

Favorite Drink:  Black Coffee and Beer

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself?

I would have Paul Giamatti play me.

Cat-Person, Dog-Person, or both?   I love my cat but I am more of a dog person.

Lulu & Isis

What two words would best describe your music? Banana and Radio
