BITS & PIECES with David Cordero

BITS & PIECES with David Cordero

The first album you bought?

Europe “The Final Countdown”. I was 7 years old. When I was a kid I listened to a lot of Hard Rock.

The last album you were addicted to?

Max Richter “Sleep”. I think it is a sublime record, exciting eight hours. Wonderful.

A movie you can always watch?

Only one? I have many…The Goonies, Back to the future, Aliens, The Godfather…

A book you couldn’t stop reading?

Miles: Autobiography of Miles Davis

The weirdest thing that has ever happened to you on stage or in the studio?

I have had some weird experiences, especially on trips to concerts, rather than on stage. I remember a shocking one while traveling to a show in Amsterdam. For any reason we missed the flight but our luggage was already checked in. We were not allowed to board the plane but we could watch our instruments being shipped in the hold. We flew the next day to Amsterdam and, as soon as we arrived, we went directly to lost and found luggage, but they had only half of our set. Nobody knew where the rest of our instruments were. We were both nervous and terrified. So we went walking through the airport and surprisingly found our lost equipment going around on a baggage carousel. It has been there all that time going around, abandoned… but nobody touched it.

A favorite piece of equipment?

My reverbs: Electro Harmonix Cathedral & Line 6 Verbzilla.

A description of your music you’ll never forget?

Actually I don’t remember any in particular, but one that caught my attention was during a show with my old band Ursula, that I was told that our concert has been like a birth.

David Cordero‘s new album, El Rumor del Oleaje, is available on Home Normal.
