I am going to interview the legendary Jordan Rudess for Delicious Agony Prog Rock Radio, member of such acts as Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment, Rudess/Morgenstein Project, Dixie Dregs, etc.

So if there is something you would want me to ask him just post it below!


I'll publish a transcript of the interview here!
Michael's Sonic Kaleidoscope Mondays 5:00pm EST(re-runs Thursdays 3:00pm) @ Delicious Agony Progressive Rock Radio(http://www.deliciousagony.com)

I have a couple of questions...
 
Why does he needs to generate or make music in such things like an iphone, when he have many of the best keyboards and synth at his hand...? is it an addiction to gadgets or what?
 
Which is his favorite song or part that he has compose for Dream Theater and why...?
 
 
Thanks and good luck with your interview pal... have fun...

Other than anyone in Dream Theater, whom does he enjoy working with the most?

What is your favorite Dream Theater album?

What type of stuff are you listening to nowadays (favorite bands, etc...)?

What's it like playing some of the Kevin Moore-era songs in a live setting?

If you had the opportunity to make an album with any of your musical heroes, who would it be, and why?

Just a few off the top of my head. Have fun with the interview! Smile

I'd like to know what, seeing that his solo output is so different in style from what he does with DT, his actual musical preferences are.
I like the music of any era, regardless of when it was made.

Hi,
 
Don't be a geek in your interview.
 
Be a person and make him feel good about talking to a person and sharing good talk about music.
 
What's up next? How does he feel about his work, from the first day to today ... does he look at it as I was a silly boy, and today I am a composer ... make him feel at home and let him have the fun of it all, including silly stuff and jokes if he likes it that way ... this way we meet a "person" ... not some over blown star out there!
 
With a person we can learn a lot more about what the music means to him, them and what they hope to accomplish.
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

Are there any artists you'd enjoy the chance to work with? I'd love to hear you with Rick Wakeman or Jon Anderson.
Hello, mirror. So glad to see you, my friend. It's been a while...
