Question

1. Which came first: your songs for Works v1 or the idea to compose an album with orchestral arrangements?

2. How did you feel about singing songs with more lascivious lyrics (So Far To Fall, Taste Of My Love)? All in good fun, or did you have a twinge of "Oh boy, I'm gonna hear about this later"?

Answer

I. The case of Works some if the songs were begun before the idea of using the orchestra others came after we had started. 

2. Regarding the two songs you mention I think I may have felt a slight twinge or two from time to time. I think there are very few artists who when they look back don't have at least one or two moments they wish they could erase.  Best,

Greg.

Question

Have loved your music for years. After watching you perform "Pirates" on dvd, I was wondering if you ever thought about singing in some of the earlier rock operas like Ian Gillan in Jesus Christ Superstar. Cindy Lindstrom

Answer

Dear Cindy, 

People have suggested it to me from time to time but I think I am to much of a free spirit to be tied down in that way. Basically, deep down I am rock and roll and I don't think that will ever change.  Many thanks, interesting question. Best,

Greg.

Question

Greetings and salutations Greg.

I have to say first off that so many of your songs have composed the soundtrack of my life and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  :)

It seems that your voice gets clearer, stronger and more resonant every performance I have watched. It's truly amazing!   I am a recent former smoker and I suppose an amateur singer round town and would  like to get my voice back to full strength, so to speak. I am wondering...  Do You have any special trade secrets or home remedies/teas  that you use to keep your Vocal cords in such good shape? 

Thank you so much for your music, with Warm Regards

Mary

Answer

Dear Mary,

Thank you very much for a your very kind words. From a purely physical standpoint you will definitely feel benefits from giving up smoking because as a singer air is everything.  It will obviously take time for your body to adjust to this change so don't expect things to happen overnight. The more you sing the better it is, but my advice is not to become a slave to technique. It is the expression that is important and the ability to communicate feeling.  Best,

Greg.

Question

Did ELP use a click track when recording in the studio? I can't imagine that even being possible with all the time changes you guys did. Also, when you were a kid, what name did your mom use when you were in trouble?

Answer
No click track and if I was in trouble it was Gregory! Best, Greg. 18-Oct-2013
