Interview conducted by James Macfarlane
JM: How have your tastes in music changed over time?
IT: In the early years, I was hard into Ozzy, Crue, AC/DC and Maiden. My first concert was Somewhere on Tour- Iron Maiden-1987. Eddie was walking around the stage at Maple Leaf Gardens, it was cool! That crew of friends got in a lot of trouble…Next, I was into anything from CFNY-Smiths, New Order, Depeche Mode, Cure. Then went to Uni, and the Grunge era was upon us: Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Jane’s Addiction, in addition to UK imports like Oasis, The Verve and of course Coldplay. But through it all I still have my top 5 that I can listen to on a deserted island.
JM: What was your favourite song when you were in high school?
IT: Probably something from a John Hughes Movie – “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” by Simple Minds – Great soundtracks from his movies. Always great songs for High school dances!
