Exclusive Interview with Gurf Morlix
Why country music ?
~ It is the blues. It's all about the blues. Without the blues, there is nothing.
If everything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Hank Williams and Muddy Waters. Come on, try to imagine that!
What song you ever recorded means the most to you and why?
~ I love them all.
Who would you like to write a song for you?
~ I don't know why anyone would do that.
Whisky wine beer or ...?
~ A glass of red wine. And then some beer.
Give us one country song you never want to hear on radio anymore and tell us why.
~ Pretty much every modern country song I have heard, in the last 20 years or so. There are a few exceptions.
What is the question interviewers never seem to ask you and...you wish they would? (Please provide your answer as well.)
~ What keeps you going, despite all the sacrifices?
I'm just looking for some art. Wherever I go, I hope to make some, every day. A little bit of art goes a long way.
Describe the ultimate recording studio (not the technique but the facilities)
~ My home studio - Rootball Studio.
Johnny or June ?
~ Both! Johnny wuz an amazing talent, but June wuz his reason to live.
Are you still nervous before going on stage and if so, do you use any "rituals" to calm you nerves.
~ No reason at this point in my life to be afraid. Of anything. Or in your life either. Trust me.
What was the most memorable day in your musical career and tell us why.
~ Today. I am finishing up my next album, every album is better than the one before it. And every day is better than the one before. So far.
