Hi John. I once heard a version of the Porcupine Tree song Fadeaway with you doing the lead vocals. It was actually that moment that I discovered that you're amazing doing lead vocals and you've been recording your own stuff for quite some time. How did that happen? I mean with the Fadeaway song. Did Steven just walked up to you and said "you sing this one"? You and Steven sang it differently (and quite beautifully) so there's really no better version between the two.
Hi Drew, Steve came up one day in rehearsal and told everyone he would like to do the song, said that he would like me to give a go, but do it an octave higher as he felt it would sound nice that way... I learned it, tried and it worked great... fun stuff... thanks..JW
What model of PRS guitars you use?
Hello John, Not a ? for you, just to say I genuinely admire your talent, your voice and your style. I am 57 yrs old, have been a rock music lover most of my life. Recently scaled up to Progressive and Alternative and am loving Porcupine Tree, Riverside, Opeth, A Perfect Circle, bands similar to these. Your performance with the tours of P T was captivating. Your presence in this band was a resource for me to become a fan of your solo/band and fan-site-club. A sincere thank you, thank you, from my musical-soul. BrendaJohn Wesley responded on 09/09/2013
