Megosh Interview With Rock Forever Magazine



1. For anyone who doesn’t know the band yet, what is the #1 thing that people should know about you? We are welcoming.  We want to know everyone.  We want to hear from everyone.

2. If you had to describe your music in just one sentence, what would it be? Melodic and sublime poppy modern prog rock with an edge.

3. What is the inspiration behind the band name? An 80's movie.  More specifically, the loyal friend of the main character in the movie Willow, starring Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis, dircted by Ron Howard.

4. If you could create your dream tour lineup, who would you want to go on tour with? The Mars Volta and Coheed and Cambria would open up for megosh.  What? It could happen.

5. What is your favorite song you ever released and why? I think we all have different favorites.  We have more songs in the vault, but we have only officially released our 6 song EP.  One song we had a lot of fun making was the acoustic version of our song 'Monsters’.   We took one of our songs (a hard rockin' yet unreleased demo track) and arranged it for 1 guitar, mandolin, and cello.  We arranged and recorded it all in one studio session.  Derv played the cello part and had never played cello before.  If you listen to the cello track by itself, it sounds... let's just say it doesn't sound so great.  Works in the mix though!
 
6. Who or what are your biggest musical influences? Josh likes emo, Finch likes Bobby McFerrin, Luke likes bands that sound like pop punk with a screamer, and Derv likes Elton John and George Michael.

7. What is one fun fact that fans might not know about you? One of us is a firefighter, and one of us is a nurse!

8. What are your upcoming plans and what can fans expect from you in the near future? Well that's a pretty simple answer…  after our summer tour with Alesana, we will be recording our first full length album (cd? collection of MP3's?).  Get pumped! (who says that?)
