Flare.com Asks… James Blunt, cont’d
F: What are you listening to right now?
JB: I am really enjoying the Killers, who have a new album out at the moment. I also like The Gorillas… anything that rhymes with Illas, really.
F: What do you think is the one album everyone should own?
JB: Pink Floyd, “Wish You Were Here”.
F: What’s one item you could not part with?
JB: My guitar. I’ve had this one about four years. It’s a 1966 Gibson.
F: If you could attempt any career other than your own, what would it be?
JB: Hmm… I don’t think you can be a professional drinker can you? I can’t think of one, really. I spent time in the army and although I had a great time, I don’t think I’d go back.
F: Who do you most admire?
JB: On a serious level, so much of what I do is irrelevant. I’ve been very dependent on the support and perspective of my friends and family to help me wade through a lot of the rubbish that comes my way. I also admire my tour manager, who is basically my mother on the road.
F: How would you like to be remembered?
JB: I’d hope to be remembered by people as an equal.
