JULY 2004 Q&A With Tommy Thayer!
Question #1 What type of girl does Tommy like? Gene likes big girls, I think. How old is too old for Tommy? -- Akira Fubuki, Nagoya, Japan
ANSWER: I like girls that are fun, sexy, intelligent and confident!
Question #2 Is Sprio Papadatos going to replace Gene one of these days? Is there a particular "Paul" on the tribute band circuit you think is killer?
-- Agnes Gunnvor, Trysil, Norway
ANSWER: Spiro's a great guy and very talented, but no word on that presently. I haven't seen all the tribute bands lately, so it's hard to say what kind of talent pool is out there!
Question #3 I emailed asking if you had a signature guitar coming out and the webmaster said not yet. So now I ask, if you do decide upon such a thing, what are you going to do to make it tailored to your style? -- Shon Campbell, Henderson, Nevada
ANSWER: I've had offers from several guitar companies for my own model, so I've been tossing around ideas for a signature guitar.
Question #4 I play drums. I am to keep in check with my bassist. But my guitarist throws him off at least 4 times a set. Do you have any complaints or peeves in regards to drummers? -- Paul Steinhauser, Jefferson City, Missouri
ANSWER: No I don't. Obviously, a band is tighter and ballsier with a great drummer and they say a band is only as good as their weakest link. With that said, Eric Singer is a band's dream because he's inventive, talented and hard-hitting, and a great singer too.
