The Age (Australia) on April 26 talked
to Jimi about many things from his favourite hobby "...
the golf world is kind of crazy.. you have to deal with
these people thet you just don't like... I always get
stopped by people saying 'You can't play in that outfit,
blah, blah, blah...'" to his next album which he
says will be "very different to Utopian Dream",
quoting Yes and Rush as "big influences!"
Time Off (Australia) on April 17 interviewed
Jimi: "When I was about 30 I started to get frustrated
about music... I felt as if I wasn't going anywhere
and started to think I should work on something else...
That all changed though, which was for the best."
"I like working with big bands, and I'll do more
of it in the future, I know this."
Revolver (Australia) on April 17 interrupted
Jimi's breakfast for an interview. "I think I'm
considered more like some kind of outsider artist than
a star, lets say like these people who do sculptures
behind the gas station on the lawn and some guy has
done an art peace out of a log with a chainsaw. I think
I'm that sort of a guy but with music... I think my
chainsaw is my flute and my log is, oh I really don't
know, lets say my maracas."
The Drum Media on 16 April ran a Jimi
Tenor story... "A lot of my friends do the powerbook
thing but I just can't get it. Especially when they
bring it live, because there's not much live element
in it. It's a strange concept to me. I'd rather see
someone making a fool of themselves on stage."
