Mon, 02 Jul 2012 12:21:16
Morning Parade guitarist (and avid golfer) Chad Thomas was game for a Take Aim interrogation at the hands of Amy Sciarretto. He's a brave soul, right? Nah, just an awesome band dude happy to do an interview with his pals at ARTISTdirect.com. Read it and weep. Or sleep. Or go deep.
The band's self-titled debut is rad, too.
Pick ONE song on your album and share a writing or recording story.
"Running Down the Aisle." The title of this song came around deep within the sub consciousness. I remember Steve finishing up on a rough draft of the track and looked up and said: "What shall we call it?" For some reason I shouted out "Running down the aisle" It reminded me of some past moments in my life and it seemed to come out before my brain had a chance to evaluate the sentence. A truly lucid song title.
Do you have any non-music hobbies, skills or talents? If so, what are they?
We all have our own little interests, it's hard to fulfill any of them as we tour so much. But me and Phil are big golfers, sneaking our golf bags on any buses or vans that have the space!
If you were not doing music, you would be...?
Climbing Mount Everest or floating around space somewhere.
The U.K. is one of my favorite places to visit and travel. Play tour guide. What are three sites/places/locations Americans need to visit in the U.K.?
You obviously have the classic sights of London with all its history and diversity... Get yourself to the Museums, They are free and there is so much to check out! But the Royal Observatory in Greenwich is one of my favourites... It's where time began!
