How long have you been a fan?: May-ish 2006
Were you on the older forums?: Some, but not all
Who is your favorite Hedley guy?: Pshhh .. I love them all, of course!! 
What is your favorite Hedley album?: Depends on my mood. I absolutely LOVE noisy rock music .. but I’m also a bit of a lyrics freak .. and I like a good sing-a-long too! See my ‘problem’?? ;)
What is your favorite Hedley song?: Again, there’s so many!! .. ‘I Won’t Let You Go (Darling)’ blew me away 3 nights running on the ‘Shipwrecked’ tour this year though .. let’s say that for now.
What is your favorite Hedley video?: All of them, for so many different reasons! Haha (I’m not good at this, am I? )
How many times have you saw Hedley in concert?: 12 times (in 3 countries), which I consider to be a huge privilege, all things considered!) .. Sending some love to Mr. *jan – brit* right now .. just ‘cause. Haha ;)

What are some of your other favorite bands?: U2, The Smiths, Neon Trees, The Killers, The Cure, Everything really (but not so much country :/, sorry, it’s an English thing!)

What are your favorite books?: God, I love books!!! LOL .. ‘The Griffin & Sabine Trilogy’ and ‘The Tao of Pooh’ are very special to me and John Wyndham writes some effing awesome sci-fi stuff! Also Nelson De Mille and James Patterson (for the pool), and bunches of sociologically based none-fiction /Nerdishness .. Bring it on!!

Favorite drink?: Beer, wine, tequila, tea, coffee, water – per the situation ;)
Favorite season?: Summer!! Bring on the sunshine and tanning and swimming and wearing shorts etc. etc.!!
Favorite holiday?: Christmas (because a huge proportion of the rest can’t even be bothered to make up a reasonable background to their appeals for card/gift purchases) ... Cynical. Moi?
Favorite color?: Rainbows .. but especially purple
Favorite car?: One that gets me from A to B

What is your favorite lyric? (One Hedley & One other):
Hedley – Wow! Again, way too many!! Jake’s writing is one of things that drew me to this band, but I think I’ll go with the absolutely BRILLIANT twist from; ‘We’ll remember the fires, the burning car tyres’ to ‘Now we’re putting out fires and changing car tyres’ in Old School for this. That whole song is so important to me. It’s incredible (and a little bit sad maybe?) that he was so prophetic and absolutely ‘spot on’, at such a young age.

U2: ‘The right to appear ridiculous is something I hold dear’ – I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight. Says it all really
