If you think slambooks are just for the young ones specifically teens, wait until you read these three “young once” musicians joining the fun and answering basic slam book questions. It will show you proof that musicians are not at all just geeky about music but also “playful kids” ready to try something cool and way beyond the usual.
Pato loves R&B, whether local or foreign. He is also unconventional and more out-of-the-box in answering questions, evident by his answer on the question coffee or tea, where he answers milk. Dex, meanwhile, has a wide range of influences in music. He likes Pinoy rocker Bamboo but he prefers the pop-balladeer Ronan Keating when asked for an international artist he likes. Poli, on the other hand, is more intellectual in his answers. He always follows through with an explanation or description; he’s definitely a story teller.
For the last question, we asked them to describe in three words the body of water that they like the most. Contrary to their knowledge, their answers will describe their idea of sex, according to a pop psychology quiz. And you know what’s common among them, they want it “deep.” No need for explanations, we’ll just leave it to your imagination.
