UranianWilly: If you weren’t doing what you are doing at the moment, what would you wish to do and why?
Jonathan: For sure be a painter, art is a huge part of my life and I cannot imagine it without creativity. The visual form of art is just a different way to express your inner self, instead of writing music, painting is the alchemy of colors and shades, the wisdom to picture everything in a unique perspective!
UranianWilly: If I was to turn on your music player right now, what 3 artists/songs would I see on your recently played list?
Jonathan: Well, recently I was listening lots of stuff, for sure you’ll gonna listen to Fastway, an ‘80s heavy metal band formed by Fast Freddy (ex Motorhead Guitarist), Aborted with their “Necrotic Manifesto” album which is simply annihilating and the last Gorguts album “ Colored Sands”, a simple masterpiece in my humble opinion!
UranianWilly: If you had a chance to bring one person back from the dead, who would it be and why?
Jonathan: Uh, very difficult question! I adore many musicians passed away but if I have to choose one I will pick Pete Steele from Type O Negative,I’m a huge fan of the band! Honestly also Dimebag Darrel should be a great choice!!!!!
UranianWilly: What is the most trouble you’ve ever gotten into and did you learn anything from it?
Jonathan: In our lives we’ll always get into troubles and all the time we’ll experience one bigger than the other and so on. If I have to tell one which then learned a lesson well I can say: “ Do not let people tell you who you are and never underestimate yourself just ‘cause someone else feels like the one which hold the absolute truth in his pockets!” Hope it’s clear enough!
UranianWilly: What three things you regret not learning to do?
Jonathan: Surely to paint in a proper way ( I’m self taught), to brew beers and sculpting!
UranianWilly: What do you like most about the work you are doing in the moment?
Jonathan: Basically I like to deal with people with ideas and strong will to create and release excellent music!
UranianWilly: Do you believe there is intelligent life in the Universe?
Jonathan: Definitively I do! Sincerely I can’t understand those people which they keep denying about existence of intelligent life forms in the Universe, in the last 50 years we collected many proofs about that and its clearely undeniable! The only huge problem is those communities of people brain washed by religions of all sorts, everyone of them claim that’s there’s only one God, their God and they refuse to admit that we are just a small insignificant point into the galaxies.
UranianWilly: What 3 adjectives would you use to describe your personality (even the weirdest or funny example)?
Jonathan: kinda difficult to describe myself, I mean,I don’t know how to properly do it ‘cause this is the kind of thing other people do to you.If I have to well let’s say : Weird, funny and Creative.
UranianWilly: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
Jonathan: My own motto is “ The main limit is to have limits!”.
UranianWilly: Ten years from now you will be where or what?
Jonathan: Surely still an active musician with many others chances and with more experience!
