STEPHEN RoddySTEPHEN Roddy, 25, is a member of the band Furlo taking part in Music Quest 07 at Lisburn Island Arts Centre on Friday, August 10.

What do you like doing on your day off?
I have lots of days off so it's more a question of filling in the gaps when I'm actually doing something.

If you were to choose your favourite meal what would it be, where and why?
Don Giovanni's Italian in Portrush - simple I know but I go with my dad and he tells good stories.

What has been your proudest moment?
My band Furlos recent first e.p. just because it's something real I can touch and people like it and listen to it.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
I get scared a lot but mostly when I'm on my own. I suppose realising that, was not a cool moment.

How would you describe your taste in clothes? What's the most you ever spent on a single item?

I love clothes but only cheap and flared. I shop in charity shops most. I buy chorded flares about twice a year when my old ones are worn out . They cost �30 - shocking I know.

What would you do if you won a million pounds?
Buy some new flares.

What music do you like?
Most music I can live with but I have my favourites like Bellxl, Frames. I also like General Biscuit.

What sports person do you most admire?
Tiger Woods. I was a big golf lover when I was younger - he just keeps performing.

Describe your best ever holiday. What would your dream holiday be?
I've never really been on holiday. I've been away but always working. I loved working in Cyprus - the beaches there are amazing. My dream holiday would be a tour with any band, anywhere that will give Furlo a chance to reach a bigger audience - that's our next goal.

What is your greatest remaining ambition?
Furlo to make an album that people love and relate to and to have a tour of our own - something big as I have always wondered what 10,000 people looks like from a stage singing our songs.

If you could spend a day with a celebrity whom would you choose?
Angelina Jolie.

If you were stranded on a desert island what three things would you want with you?
My girlfriend Maggie, a cheese grater and four tooth picks.
