April 2006 Q&A With Tommy Thayer!

Apr 01, 2006 | Posted in Q & A Archives

Question #1 I have always wondered how you guys put your makeup on so straight and neat? How is that done, man? Thanks, Dale Long, West Jacket, WV

ANSWER: No kidding, but very carefully. It usually takes us almost two hours to put on the make-up.

Question #2 What are your thoughts on the 2005 Queen + Paul Rodgers tour? Personally, I think it's great to see Queen in action again. If they came to Pittsburgh, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Thank you kindly, Aaron Greer, Pittsburgh, PA

ANSWER: Hey Aaron, I watched the Queen/Paul Rodgers concert a few weeks ago on TV, it was a bit different from original Queen, but I liked it!

Question #3 How do you mentally or physically prepare for a show? -- Debbie Albright, Tampa, FL

ANSWER: I'm pretty mellow, which is naturally how I am. I don't generally talk a lot. I like to take my time getting ready so that I don't feel rushed. Eric showed me a few stretching moves to loosen up and I like to play a little bit of guitar before the show to loosen up the fingers.
