Get To Know Amy Lee

Posted

Want to know more about Evanescence’s leading lady Amy Lee? Amy sat down to answer some of your questions and tell you more about her music. Read on to see what she has to say then check out the tour dates HERE to see when you can see Amy Lee in a town near you. Also, make sure to follow Amy on Twitter HERE.

1. Who do you consider to be your greatest musical influences? Michael Jackson, Bjork, Nine Inch Nails, Mozart, Beethoven, Danny Elfman, Smashing Pumpkins, Depeche Mode, Janis Joplin, Alanis Morrisette, Radiohead, Garbage, Soundgarden, Massive Attack, Nirvana, Neil Young, Portishead, Tori Amos. I could keep going but I’ll stop ;)

2. Why did you pick piano and how did you get started playing? I saw the movie Amadeus when I was 8 or 9 years old and was completely enthralled. I knew I wanted desperately to make music, for a living, for life, for sure. I begged for piano lessons and took pride in being able to play more and more advanced pieces. It’s funny, at first I was kind of frustrated and hard on myself because it wasn’t sounding like it did in the movie- I wasn’t a crazy genius who could just pick a whole song out by ear after hearing it only once and I don’t have perfect pitch like Mozart- WTF! It actually takes WORK?? Haha. So I worked. It was worth it.

3. What’s your latest art or fashion project? I guess my latest art project is my new stage outfit that I designed for this tour. It’s a skirt made of flags, representing all of the countries we’ve been so honored to play in the last year on tour. I was flying home from Europe a few months ago and thinking about how every night on stage in other countries, it’s so emotional when we bring out the country’s flag. It means so much to them and to us, that we’ve made it so far. So I thought, what if I could have ALL of the countries represented at once, and show them how much we appreciate and love them all on this last part of the tour? It’s my way of showing my gratitude.

4. What are your must haves from home when you are out on the road? Vicks Vapo-Rub, GLITTER, one perfect pair of all-purpose boots, throat coat tea bags, my lucky Michael Jackson T-shirt, and Beth Wilson!

5. What song do you wish you had written? Without You’ by Pete Ham and Tom Evans. Not only is it one of my favorite songs (especially the Mariah Carey version!), it’s been covered by 180 artists and has touched an infinite number of people. Such soul.

Get To Know Tim McCord

Want to know more about Evanescence’s bass play Tim McCord? Tim sat down to answer some of your questions and tell you more about his music! Read on to see what he has to say then check out the tour dates HERE to see when you can see him rocking in a town near you. Also, make sure to follow Tim on TwitterHERE.

1. What’s your favorite song to play on stage?
 ’The Change.’ It has my favorite groove out of the Evanescence records. It’s always really fun for me.

2. When and how did you get your first bass? I was 14, so that was around 1993. I had saved up a few hundred dollars to buy a bass and my dad matched me dollar for dollar since he was also a musician and encouraged my creativity. With his help, I was able to get a 1973 Sunburst Fender Precision Bass. It was the bass I wanted because it’s the same model and color that Sting plays, who at the time was my favorite bass player (and is still near the top of the list).

3. What other instruments do you play?
 I also play guitar, some keyboards, and in most bands I’ve been in I sang backup vocals.

4. What are your favorite places to travel and anywhere you haven’t been that you want to visit? Wow, we’ve been to so many amazing places it’s hard to choose favorites. I’ll have to say Japan, Australia, South America. Brazil especially, the Netherlands, Prague, Athens, the UK. I’ve still never been to Thailand or India and would very much love to see those places.

5. Who first inspired you to be a musician? I grew up in a household where my dad was a guitarist/bassist and my brother was a drummer. Some of my earliest memories are of them having family jam sessions in our garage on weekends. I suppose it’s years and years of this that got me interested in playing.
