Pata on Fools Mate 1998 April..Thanks:XJapan
Not to forget, this is Pata and NoB, from Make-Up, which is a pretty amazing band as well! Their project together was called P.A.F. and had some catchy tunes. :D
And it also included Crazy Cool Joe from Dead End as well! :D
"…Interviewer: Maybe if you’d been born some ten years later you would now play keyboards, or synthesizer?
hide: I doubt it. But if you’re asking why guitar, it’s because when I first got into rock I found the vocals too labored, because I found singers like Paul Stanley (KISS), Freddie Mercury (Queen) or Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) much too heavy. *smiles* I couldn’t stand that Western style.
Interviewer: But you love Ace Frehley and I find his singing pretty intense.*smiles*
hide: How could I explain it…I like people who make it look effortless. Take a guitarist like Jimmy Paige (Led Zeppelin), don’t you find he plays effortlessly even though he’s always frowning? And Joe Perry (Aerosmith), you don’t find him cool? That’s the kind of person I like. That’s why for me it was never about the type of instrument being played, I chose guitar because vocalists weren’t smooth enough to be my idols. In junior high I only kept photos of guitarists in my desk pad. I didn’t choose guitar because I wanted to play it, I picked it because I wanted to be like those people, you know?…” - (c) hide, Rock ‘n’ Roll Vol. 93 The Guitar Heroes, January 27, 1995
