Name: Neil

You play: Lead vocals and rhythm guitar (Gibson guitars and Marshall Amps)

Influences:
Loads. In particular Zodiac Mindwarp, Skid Row, AC/DC, Whitesnake, too many to mention.

The first song I remember hearing:
It would be 70s glam rock, so probably something by T-Rex or Sweet. But it was ‘Caroline’ by Status Quo that got me to pick up a guitar.

What’s brilliant:
The last song I wrote.

You’re having a dinner party – who would be your ideal dinner guest(s), living or dead?
Marilyn Monroe and Phil Lynott. Two people I wished I had met.

Lip Service’s music is:
Fucking amazing! It grabs you by the balls!

You’re having a dinner party – who would be your ideal dinner guest(s), living or dead?

An order of Belgian Trappist monks. Their vow of silence would mean I wouldn’t have to put up with any inevitable awkward and banal dinner party chat but they’re sure to bring some decent beer along and I can play whatever music I like as loud as I want whilst watching Match of the Day.

Lip Service’s music is:

Not recommended for romantic candlelit meals, young children, libraries, packed lifts that have broken down between floors, the anechoic chamber at Orfield laboratory in Minneapolis, WI meetings and state funerals.

When the music is loud and there is a cold beer on the table. I love playing drums and listening to music when I'm off work. Walking around wild forest makes me feel good. 

You’re having a dinner party – who would be your ideal dinner guest(s), living or dead?

Mike Portnoy and Freddie Mercury. I would cook a placki ziemniaczene for them, it's a Polish dish. 

Lip Service’s music is:

Absolutely rockin'!! A long time ago when I was 16 years old I was watching the night sky and saw the Lip Service band logo in the stars. I couldn't understand what this meant. After another 16 years travelling around the world, I have solved the mystery! I finally found Lip Service. This is destiny. It is time to change the history of the Rock and Roll!
