Would you like to make music for a Film?
Yes - would be wonderful - i did a soundtrack once before for this http://www.atom.com/funny_videos/daddys_little_helper/?channelKeyword=channel_love_sucks - it won a few awards - its a great short film. I hope to do some more - i've submitted a few things. We shall see...

Do you think we'll ever terraform another planet and actually migrate there?
Well really as Terraforming (literally, "Earth-forming") of a planet, moon, or other body is just the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to those of Earth to make it habitable by terran organisms. I can't see it being too much of a problem.I'll go.
Have you considered playing the ukulele?
I'm loving playing the ukulele at the moment - its very comfortable to play lying down while i get over my back injury. I'm currently playing Buzzcocks, Van Halen and Burt Bacharach on it. Lotsa fun and helps with the boredom of not really being able to do anything.

What would you do if you had to give up making Music?
I don't know - i think it would have a detrimental affect on my mental health. Probably make rubbish films or art - although i have F all talent in those directions. Music keeps me (relatively) sane or perhaps i could start drinking again?

Have you considered taking up an occupation that involves lying down a lot? No, wait, that sounds bad ... ;-) Hope you get your back sorted soon (and permanently) mate!
I've no idea what you mean. My friend Dave used to play the guitar lying on the floor so thats one idea. But yeah things with my back are very frustrating at the moment - its useful to have a think about what direction your life is going in thou.
how did the physio appt go yesterday?
Hurts even more now!!! The idea is that the exercises that he has given me will strengthen the rest of my back and take the strain of the place where the slipped disc is. I was in a lot of pain today and the electric shocks came back. Not good but I am hopeful things will get better.

Do you think that 'standard' tuning is a misleading name? It's only been common for a fraction of the history of guitar like instruments.
As fripp said its "mandatory". Its just that way because it was probably easiest for a luthier 500 years ago. The standard tuning is illogical(holdsworth has said as much) but I'm not going to relearn now. Maybe Fripps tuning is a better idea?
