Barry van Trigt of Whispering Gallery (Holiday Special)

Interview with Barry van Trigt of Whispering Gallery from Holiday Special
by Michael Dalakos at 29 December 2005, 6:54 AM

Those of you who've heard Whispering Gallery before, I am pretty sure you think of them as some really serious / doomy personalities. Well, their bassist Barry van Trigt is here to prove us wrong…

Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone before answering these questions?

That would be my colleague, to ask him why the hell he had sent me spam mail (and no, I don’t mean this interview). But one which made my computer totally crash.

Are you a good cook? If you had us over for lunch, what would you cook for us?

I know how to boil an egg but I think I would pick up the phone and call the Spare Rib Hotline; they know where to find me!

If you weren’t a musician, what do you think you’d be?

I think I would have started a career as a Porn Star.

Do you like extreme sports? If so, is there an extreme sport you like doing in your spare time and what is that?

I like to run around naked, pretending I’m an airplane. Is that an extreme sport?

Do you like ordinary sports? If so, what’s your favorite team (if any)?

I think I’m one of the few guys who don’t like sports at all. Just give me a beer and I am one happy camper.

Your top-3 favorite movies of all time are?

Return Of The Living Dead
The Toxic Avenger

And many, many more, there are too many good movies and mostly the best movies are the worst ones!

How political are you as a person? Would you prefer a really bad porn movie full of transsexuals instead of going to some politician’s speech or is it the other way around?

I’m totally non political and yes, just give me the bad porn as long as there are no politicians in it telling everybody how to fuck (can I say fuck?).

What is the weirdest thing you ever wore to go out at night with your friends?

That’s a hard one. I don’t have a clue. That’s a question you’ve got to ask my friends…

What do you have in your pockets right now?

That would be my wallet, some bubblegum and two wish lists for Christmas… Santa is coming to town.

Have you ever been to a beach full of nudists? What was it like and were you one of them?

Never been there before but you made me wonder, so I think I will….. I’ll let you know how it was, I bet I would like it!

Band/Artist you’d love to be trapped with inside an elevator.

Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden. When he starts screaming maybe someone will hear us and help us out of the f*cking elevator.

If aliens ever abducted you, what song would you play for them?

Space Oddity by David Bowie.

What’s under your bed?

Don’t have a clue. I’m too afraid to look under the bed, I’ve seen too many scary movies…

Your girlfriend/boyfriend turns out to be gay. Your reaction would be?

Lovely! Can I join the fun?

A Metal/Rock album that everybody loves but you hate.

There’s not much that I hate. I dislike Guns ’n’ Roses, any album, there are lots of people who love them but I ain’t one of them..

Do you have any phobia? And what is that?

Hmmmm I don’t think I have any phobia or being afraid your dick won’t work anymore should be a phobia? Then I have one.

The most ridiculous thing you have ever done because you were drunk.

Getting even drunker.

Have you ever done anything that made you feel terribly guilty afterwards?

Not at all and if I did, I’ve totally blocked it out.

When was the last time you got pissed off at a friend of yours and why was that?

Pissed off, hmmm, that’s probably a long, long time ago in a galaxy far away. It takes a lot to get me angry especially for a friend.

Have you ever been in jail? What for?

No, not that I can remember. Maybe a day or two for humping a penguin!

What would you do if you ever saw an elephant humping a penguin at the zoo?

I would take my camera, shoot a few action pictures and send them to my friends as a Christmas card. Even penguins need some sweet loving; Happy New Year!.

If they would offer you a role in an all-star celebrity reality show, would you accept? Who would the top 3 of celebrities be that you would like to have along with you? And who would be the top 3 celebrities that you would ABSOLUTELY NOT want in it? Ok, let me think about the top 3 I would love having around:

 Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Connelly and Jessica Alba or the Olsen Twins (do they count for one person?).

And the I think I’ll get crazy top 3 is: The guy from the Full House (the father) TV series, the other guy from the Full House series (the funny man who wasn’t funny) and Squarepants (ADHD) SpongeBob.

Was 2005 good to you?

2005 was great for me! I bought a house with my lovely girlfriend, I got fired and hired, so I still got my pay check. We (Whispering Gallery) signed with a great record company, Burning Star Records who will release our album in December. What a great way to end the year! So, I’ve got nothing to complain about.

Your wish for 2006…

That many of you guys and dolls out there like our new album, Shades of Sorrow. And off course win the jackpot, be healthy, have fun, the usual!
