Ten Questions with...


Guitarist JJ Marsh has worked with Glenn Hughes plus the Hughes Turner Project & he also appeared on last year's Legends of Rock tour in the UK.

1. What are you currently up to?

On tour with HTP-II

2. What has been the highlight(s) and lowpoints(s) of your career to date?

Highpoint - HTP Tour - we played to a lot of people. Lowpoint - Almost dying of starvation whilst I waited nearly two hours for a plate of lasagne in a Cardiff hotel, and then when it arrived it was still frozen. Luckily there was a gorgeous young redhead at my table who took it back to the kitchen and beat up the chef for me. Unfortunately I was so weak from hunger that she had to carry me up to my room, and the lowpoint of my whole life was waking up 36 hours later with a picture of Donald Duck tattooed on my left buttock.

3. Who have been your main influences on your career?

Jimi Hendrix, Ritchie Blackmore, Jeff Beck

4. How long have you been working with Glenn Hughes now & how did you hook up with him? How is the new album progressing?

Glenn and I met at a friend's wedding in 1995. HTP-II will be deeper than the last one.

5. How did the recent UK Legends of Rock tour go? Any good road tales to share?

Tour went well. Uli's keyboard player wears women's underwear.

6. You are also doing some work along with drummer Morgan Ågren. Could you tell us more about this? If you could create a fantasy band line-up who would you have in it and why?

It's a band called Kamakazi United. We just started this band - it is the music of Simon Steemsland.

My fantasy band: I would play Drums. Jeff Beck: Guitar, Glenn Hughes: Trombone,Uli on Double Bass, Singer: Eartha Kitt

7. What made you want to play guitar and how did you first start out?

Because of Ace Frehley and Sweet.

8. Any up & coming musicians/bands we should look out for in the coming year? Who would you like to work with in the future?

All the new bands suck, except my band Spellbound. Anyone who will give me a lot of money.

9. What do you do in your spare time outside of music?

I go for walks. I write the music. I play Badminton.

10. Message to your fans...

Hope to see you on the next tour. Check out the new Glenn Hughes record Songs in the Key of Rock. We Rock!

Peace to all, KT
