... it's alright for some!!
Who is your biggest musical influence?
Well I've been influenced by many over the years,
I'd have to say The Beatles are probably my main influence,
followed by Noel Gallagher and Bob Dylan's songwriting.
You have supported some big names such as Roger Daltrey, Peter Green and Feeder. Who have you enjoyed meeting the most and why?
I was very fortunate to support Roger Daltrey when he visited
the Island and after the show went out for some drinks with his
band. It was there I met Simon Townshend, he's a great guy,
fantastic musician/songwriter and has been very supportive of my
music. I opened up for him at The Ealing Club, London too, we had a
great time, brilliant memories and we still keep in
If you could have written one song what would it have been?
Ah, good question! I often think, 'Wish I'd written that!'
I would have to say 'Georgia' by Ray Charles - although this would
probably change tomorrow, it's a hard one to answer, so many great
songs to choose from isn't there. Also, Happy Birthday, think of
all the royalties!
What is your favourite guitar and why?
My Guild acoustic (Gad 30). Just love the look and sound of it, would be lost without it and have written some of my favourite songs on it too.
If you could be one person for a day, musical or otherwise, who would it be?
I don't think I'd like to be anyone else to be honest, It's hard enough being Chris Gray!
What's next for Chris Gray?
Playing at Amber on 17th May, debut album being released on the Sunn Creative label around summer time, hopefully some more UK gig dates later in the year.
