Chris Marsden’s Quick Questions!
What inspires you?
“Family and friends, as there is never a dull moment in life. They make me feel I need to strive to do better each day, living each day, as if it was your last!”
What would the name of your debut album be?
He can sing as well.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would play the lead role as you?
Jim Carey or Ryan Reynolds. They both have some of my traits!
The quirkiest job you’ve ever had.
Worked for ONE HOUR in a magot factory, hand stirring magots and freezing mice, spiders and crickets for exotic birds!
Tell us THREE facts about yourself that others might not know?
1) I was falsely arrested by unmarked policemen for carrying a wooden leg. They thought it was a shotgun and I made the national news.

3) If I was born a girl, I would have been called Joanne.
