I'm not really that afraid of any of the stuff in your poll, but I am afraid that I will break strings on stage, because I do that often when practicing.


And I'm arachnophobic sad.gif
That really sucks, because I know spiders arent dangerous, but still I'm scared to death.

My greatest fear:

Never finding love. sad.gif People joke about how annoying marriage can be, how wifes can be this or that. I don't care, I would go through hell 100 times just to have someone I loved, love me back!

That is true. Durnit I should have put it up there. You're a guitarist though, play some top 40 songs and you'll have ladies all over you laugh.gif

Please Andrew, dont sing any songs by Sting and the police tongue.gif thats what a i really fear laugh.gif laugh.gif

I must admit, the idea of Aliens is pretty freaky! I used to watch too much X-files when i was a kid and i was pretty scared of that laugh.gif laugh.gif

Luckily these days im scared of more rational things, like the beast on bodmin wink.gif

I have a phobia of buttons, it used to be worse I can just about stand them now, but I hate the damn big things that some people think are fashionable...

In all honesty! Seriously! laugh.gif

I'm also a bit rubbish with heights, again nothing I cant handle but I'd rather be without it at all. smile.gif

Not bothered by spiders or things like that at all.

I also have a very rational fear of my dads stir fry - euggh.... tongue.gif

Oh but make no mistake, we are afraid. Especially of your alien moderating powers! biggrin.gif

Spiders scare me. I kill them in an instant if they are too big. If they are small I will pick them up (in a piece of toilet paper) and toss them out doors, alive. But big ones... I guess it's just a reaction, kill or get killed.
This fear of course excludes spiderusalem.. to a point. tongue.gif

Also heights, I hate em.

Ok, that was a dramatic exaggeration ... I came in a Limo from the airport, a Lincoln Town Car, not a Jeep at all unsure.gif

And I flew from the UK to the USA in a 767, but that's just plain dull so I din't mention it at first ...

He lies again!

He was flown in on a personal jet given to him by Steve Vai for being... well Mr. Cockburn.

From the airport he landed at, he was carried in a chair all the way to his house, and people gathered on the streets to welcome him to America.

Then the government asked for tax money.. mad.gif
