Vasja Ivanovski

– Something about your musical beginnings, what got you into music?
    Hearing BB King when I was 12 years old, I had to play the guitar when I heard him, then Freddie Albert Jimi etc. I'm still blown away by all these guys. Also Peter Green when he was in Fleetwood Mac, WOW?!!
    
    – Your early influences were…

     B.B. King, Albert King & Freddie King, but also soul stuff like Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin etc. I also listened to a lot of punk stuff like The Clash. Led Zeppelin and Free were also big influences.
    
    – Who would you regard as your biggest influence so far?

    I have to say again B.B., Albert & Freddie, the three kings and Peter Green.
    
    – Is there anyone you would like to work with?

    I would love to play a small blues club with B.B. King ,maybe we could get Stevie Wonder on piano.
    One of my favorite soul bands ever were the Average White Band and last week I played at a Jimi Hendrix tribute gig in London with Hamish Stuart from the AWB which was a thrill, his voice is amazing. I wouldn't say no if Aretha Franklin asked me to play guitar for her either.
    
    – What unfulfilled ambition do you have?

    To play football for England. (ha ha)! I would also love to play in Macedonia!! I've been to Croatia & Slovenia & loved it, great PIVO?!!!!
    
    – What was the first record you bought?

    Ray Charles – Live At Newport. My first record was B.B. King – Live At The Regal but I had no money and was so desperate for it that I stole it from a shop I'm afraid to say. ( I was only 12).
    
    – What was the last record you bought?

    I bought 3 yesterday : The Magic Numbers CD, a 3-CD Gospel Collection and The Average White Band re-issue CD.
    
    

– Five desert island albums of your choice would be…
    B.B. King – Live At The Regal.
    Donny Hathaway – Live.
    Stevie Wonder – Innervisions.
    Jimi Hendrix – Electric Ladyland.
    and any Peter Green era Fleetwood Mac album
    
    – Beside your material, which covers you usually do on stage?

    Otis Rush – All My Love, Tampa Red – Don’t You Lie To Me, Willie Dixon – I'm Ready, Albert King – As The Years Go Passing By, B.B. King – Everyday I Have The Blues.
    
    – What do you think about contemporary blues scene?

    I think in the UK
