Same family, different views. Our new feature gets people who do related jobs (or who are actually related) to tell us all about their favourite things. This month it’s the turn of two local guitar heroes, Charlie Northedge and Rick Jones. Want to feature? Email features@gallery.je.

Has to be my acoustic guitar, it’s variously kept me sane and paid my bills – and it’s made in Ireland… who’d have thought?

Favourite place in the world

Koh Pha Ngan

Tough one, I variously wish I was back in the USA, or living on the Ecrehous.  I’ll say the Ecrehous!

Favourite colour

RJ
Green, but real green… grass, trees etc.

CN
Red

Favourite animal

RJ
My German Shepherd, Thor!

RJ

I may have taken too many blows to the head, they are all jumbled up!

The parties we used to have at my old apartment in Hollywood. We’d bbq on the balcony then drink beers by the pool until the sun disappeared… and we were usually still there when it came back again
