They were in Kuala Lumpur last month performing for the first time on Malaysia’s soil with over 3,000 fans rocked to their famous songs. Just hours before the concert, the CLEO team and other local press were lucky to meet Amy Lee and the rest of the guys for a short and fun Q&A session!
What is it like being the only lady in a band? Do you get bullied by the guys or are you the one bullying them?
Amy: I don’t think anybody’s bullying anybody. We’ve got a pretty cool thing going on here. I’m just like one of the guys.
You’re often seen in black clothes or dark coloured clothes. Do you ever step out of that and try to add a bit of colour?
A: All the time, all the time. I think that our image or the sound of our music has a lot of big, deep, dark feelings. And especially on stage I want to fit that, but at the same time, I think our music has grown into something a lot more dynamic. And I’m sure you’ll see tonight there’s a lot more than black going on there.
How long does it take for you to put on your makeup? A: About an hour. You sang a song for The Muppets. Are you a fan of The Muppets personally?
A: Totally. I mean, who wasn’t as a kid.
Which one was your fave character?
A: Maybe Rowlf, he’s a brilliant dog. It’s pretty awesome!
Is there anyone that you guys would like to collaborate with? Any band or singer?
A: We don’t have any specific ideas in mind. But I usually think that collaboration would be coolest when you’re doing it with a very different artist. Instead of two rap artists or two pop artists working together, I think it’s really cool when two extremes come together to make something unique. So I’d be on the look out for something like that for us.
How about Justin Bieber?
A: That would be great, wouldn’t it?
Could we have each of you to complete this sentence? You are happiest when…
Troy: ...I’m happiest on the beach with my kid and my wife.
Will: ...I’ll say I second that, but than I’m also equally as happy behind my drums.
Terry: ...yeah, that’s true. I’m very happy on stage.
A: ...I had a super happy moment in our last show in Hong Kong. The crowd was amazing and that was part of it, but I lost my voice a little bit from the two previous shows and I was feeling totally helpless. Because when you’re sick, there’s nothing you can do about it. My voice was kind of broken but I didn’t want to cancel the shows because we’ve been wanted to see the fans so bad. I didn’t want to let them down so we just power through it and kind of did it as best we could. I was hating myself, but then my voice came back right before the show in Hong Kong and we had a killer show. Bush was there playing with us, they watched the whole show and they were so amazing. I just had an awesome time in Hong Kong. We’re all going to do that same thing again tonight.
