Nikos Papanikolaou of X-Piral (Holiday Special)

Interview with Nikos Papanikolaou of X-Piral from Holiday Special
by Michael Dalakos at 29 December 2005, 6:54 AM

Nikos Papanikolaou of X-Piral was kind enough to pass the torment of answering my stupid questions. Let's see a guitarist's opinion on several serious matters…

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

My girlfriend.

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

I am a terrible cook. For your own good, I would buy you something.

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

A Web Designer which is actually my real job.

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

I love extreme sports. My favorite is dealing with drummers.

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

I don’t.

Your top-3 favorite movies of all time are?

Rose Red (Stephen King)
The Shining (Stanley Kubrick)
Session 9 (Brad Anderson)

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?

It is about the same interesting.

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

My clothes inside out.

What do you have in your pockets right now?

My car keys and my cigarettes.

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

I have been to one. It was freaking full of dicks. I wasn’t one of them.

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

Doro Pesch.

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

Surfing With The Alien

What’s under your bed?

A green monster. The black one is in my closet.

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

I would ask my girlfriend’s girlfriend to join us in bed.

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

Anything from Nightwish.

Do you have any phobia? And what is that?

I’ve always been afraid of my loved ones getting hurt, physically or emotionally.

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

I peed in a Christmas crib some years ago when I went with my friends to celebrate the New Year.

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


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

I am always pissed off at Dimitris (X-Piral keyboardist) about not waking up and getting late to work.

Have you ever been in jail? What for?

Many times but I never knew why. I guess they like me…

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

Film it.

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?

I would accept if it would take place at the Playboy mansion. I would like to be there with Doro Pesch of course, Avril Lavigne and Lemmy Kilmister. I wouldn’t want Tarja Turunen, Michael Jackson (he’s kind of frightening) and Bill Gates.

Was 2005 good to you?

Freakin’ good!

Your wish for 2006…

Peace, health, water and food for all, and even MORE GREEK METAL BANDS!!!
