So Download Festival is under a week away and we know it’s always so hard to pick who you go to see. There’s always so many news bands to check out along side some of your favourites at Download Festival and we figure if we give you a bit of a preview of each and let them introduce themselves to you, it may make your planning easier.
VerseChorusVerse is the current moniker for Tony Wright. It’s something new for Tony and an unknown territory. We’ll let him tell you instead though, he tells it better anyway.
Who are you and what do you do?
I am Tony Wright, otherwise known as VerseChorusVerse, I am a Singing Guitar Player, Melody Bothering Bellower and all round Rock & Roll Adventurer.
How did you get started?
Playing guitar since 8, formed a number of bands, most notably ASIWYFA, then decided it was time to open my mouth and shout/sing until I was blue in the face and cleansed in the mind.
What stage and day are you playing at Download Festival?
I am on The Jaeger Acoustic Stage on Sunday the 15th at 1650, which is, for certain, the only place to be at that time! Especially for me…
What’s the best thing about playing Download Festival?
Getting to finally see Aerosmith after all these years!
Who are you most looking forward to seeing play at Download?
Have you got any surprises in store for you Download set?
Songs catchier than than a spaceship manned by flies crashing into a planet made entirely of fly paper. (It could happen!)
What’s your best festival memory either personally attending as a fan or in the band? And what’s your advice to all the festival goers?
Seeing the Jesus Lizard about 5 years ago at Pukkelpop in Belgium and then getting to hang out with Duane Dennison the guitarist after for a beer. He’s one of my all time guitar heroes. Advice? Party hard whilst drinking plenty of water too and, this is the important one, be nice and help people out. Then everyone has a better time. Rock &/or roll.
This is your chance to have your say to make people come see your set at Download.
