Brett Tuggle, September 12 - 25, 2000
Hello again Brett! I could ask you the obvious question, but I won't; because I'm sure someone already has by now. But it does have to do with the AHI benefit concert. There were some rumours to the effect that Lenny Kravitz was going to be there. Could you shed a little light on this? Is there any connection between Stevie and Lenny? With that I just want to say that I really enjoyed this Q&A session; as I think everyone else on "the boards" has. Thanks so much for taking your time and sharing it with us. Best to you and all your endeavors! (Joe Droege, Erlanger, Kentucky, USA)
Hi Brett: I'm pouting because I didn't get to go to the AZ show. Actually I'm just being practicle and waiting for the new album tour. :-) Besides having Happy Birthday sang to you (that must have been fun!) were there any other highlights? I heard the acoustic version of Gypsy nearly brought the house down! Do you know why Stevie is wearing platform Reeboks on stage recently? I'm a shoe-fettish-female so these things are important to me -LOL!!! Can't wait to see ya on the road!! (Laurie S., Portland, Oregon, USA)
Hi Laurie S.,
Dear Mr Tuggle-- Thanks for answering so many questions and really admire you. My questions is I saw the Stevie Show in Irvine and at the end of the show you brought out the cutest little thing, and she seemed to take a bow with the band! What kind of dog was it and does she/he travel with you a lot. I love dogs and thought that was almost the best part of the show! (Ashley, Irvine, California, USA)
Hi, Brett-here I am again=:-) I understand the show was great! from the reviews I have read already. Could you tell us a little bit about it from a performer's point of view? I so wish I could have been there. (Vianna, Alexandria, Virginia, USA)
Hi Brett-- These questions are for you and not about anyone else. Isn't that a relief? Since this is my one and only chance to get to write to you, I want to get in as many questions as possible.
1. I was just wondering what are your musical influences? What artist(s) or group(s) made you excited and want to perform in show business?
2. What artist(s) today, including old and new, do you most identify with?
3. What is your favorite album(s) of all time that you own or would like to own?
4. What do you think about the music today compared to previous decades?
5. Also, to trip you up a little bit, What is your favorite movie?
Sorry about that. I am a huge fan of all types of music. And when someone gets excited about playing music like yourself no matter who the artist is, it shows in their personality. So thanks for taking the time out to answer mine and everyone elses questions. Considering what a busy schedule you have had in the last few weeks, it's a wonder that you even had time at all. It goes to show that you care about your fans. So thanks again. And keep on rocking. Good luck at the AHIF show. By the time you read this the show will be over. So for those of us who cannot be there, let us know how it went okay!! (Michelle Anderson, South of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA)
Hi, Brett! I spoke with you Saturday night after the show in the hotel bar. (You know, the guy from South Carolina?) Anyway, just wanted to say hi and thanks for hanging with me!
My question: how that the show is over...what's next for you? Anything between now and Stevie's next tour? You're an awesome performer and it's great seeing you live!
Again, it was great talking with you and thanks for the Q & A! Drop me a line if you ever find yourself in SC! LOL! :) (Mike, Moore, South Carolina, USA)
Hi, Brett! I don't really have a question, I just wanted to thank you so much for doing this and to tell you happy belated "25th" birthday! I was in the audience at the AHI benefit and it was an absolutely amazing show!!! I am so grateful to everyone who was a part of that, and it was for a great cause too! I hope Stevie wasn't too upset about going to the wrong microphone at the beginning or anything, since it was definitely not indicative of what the rest of the concert would be like! It was the first time I've ever seen Stevie or any of the other performers on stage, and I don't know what the heck took me so long! LOL Thanks again! (Lisa G., Bloomingdale, Illinois, USA)
Hello again. I just wanted to tell you how informative and very cool you have been with your answers. I was at the AHI benefit on Saturday and was sitting in the 2nd row to your left. I had a great view of everything and had an incredible time. Stevie & friends really put on a great show. Looking forward to the tour! (Michelle, Brooklyn, New York, USA)
Hi again Brett,
I'm becoming one of those annoying pests that you can't get rid of. I swear this is the last time. One question I forgot to ask you was, 'Is there anyone now, (not including past performers) that you would want to tour or work with in the future?' This includes artists in the last decade. Also, a very Happy Birthday to you!! (Michelle Anderson, South of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA)
Hi Brett...First of all, this has been a great Q&A, your thorough answers are very much appreciated. This is definitely one of my very favorites so far. With that out of the way, the benefit concert was AMAZING!! I flew out from Boston just for the show and I would do it again in a minute. The band sounded great. Stevie was having such a good time, as a fan I don't think I could have asked for anything more. I was just wondering, what were some of your favorite moments during the show? Maybe when Stevie sang "Happy Birthday" to you?? Thanks Again! (Erin, Boston, Massachusetts, USA)
How does it feel to have 20,000 people sing "Happy Birthday" to you? (Kelly Anne, Phoenix, Arizona, USA)
Hi Brett. I was there at the AHI benefit and thought you were great. I have two questions for you 1. Was it really your birthday? 2. Was stevie really wearing red snakeskin pants after the concert? Thanks for answering our questions, we really appreciate it. One more thing- please tell Stevie and Lindsey to keep rocking on, preferably together. (Lisa, Mcallen, Texas, USA)
Hi -- I was wondering if you've ever seen Stevie write a song, or song lyrics. What does she look like while she's writing? (Farrah, Whitestone, New York, USA)
