I got the interview from De Nieuwe Revu in my mailbox today. It's great. Quite different than a normal promo-interview. It's not about the record itself, but about the difficulties making it and Tom's ambitions. A must read!

  • he wants to make two more movies before he gets 40. And he wants to win the Golden Palm in Cannes
  • he thinks he will stop playing music within a year or five.
  • he also talks about his father, who died when he was 17. He only heard one song of Tom.
  • His father is in the Guiness Book of Records with the world's biggest kroonluchter.
  • Tom wants children. He has some names in mind: Charles Magnus, Montgomery, Marie,...
  • He wants a wife with balls and good cooking qualities
  • Tom has got a best of-list of his ex-girlfriends
  • He talks about having made two records with Guy Van Nueten. Is that cd1 and cd2 from the Live-album? Or can we expect something else.
  • Tom talks about Craig and Danny quiting. Looks like he even fought with Danny. After that they drove all the way from Edinburgh to Antwerp without stopping. Tom wrote 6 songs in the back of the tourbus, but he hasn't listened to them.
  • Tom has a great feeling about the rehearsals for the tour. They are rehearsing during the day because 'Good music should do it also in daylight'
