Quick Q&A with Detroit-based songwriter Tish Lyndsey
Tish is your real name, right? Got any fun nicknames?
Yes, it’s my real name. When I was a kid, I often got called Tissue or Tushy. My friends just call me T. You can, too.
Best childhood memory, T?
Singing at my first school talent show in 6th grade.
Who’s your favorite band?
That’s tough. Probably Fleetwood Mac. I think of them as my fairy godparents. Def Leppard for life, but, I do have a special place in my heart for The Doors.
Got any Hollywood crushes?
Many. I’m like an 8th grader with all my crushes. Okay, T.I. ,Michael Keaton, Lenny Kravitz, Shia Lebeauf, Darth Vadar (Hayden Christiansen), Blair Underwood, Tyson Beckford, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Buble. Safe to say I don’t have a type!
Who would you most like to meet?
Living – Lindsey Buckingham
Dead (maybe) – Jim Morrison . Or, Billie Holiday. I have a TON of questions to ask her.
It’s between us girls.
Quick – who’d win in a street fight? Batman or Spider-Man?
If Michael Keaton was in the Batman suit, DEFINITELY Batty.
Toss up. Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sparkle.
Favorite curse word?
I don’t cuss.
So what do you say when you’re mad?
Some goofball variation on a swear word. What the fudge.
You’re a pretty sweet girl, what’s the naughtiest thing you’ve ever done?
Here’s a pretty bad one, my best friend and I use to make ‘chocolate shakes’ for our little brothers. The secret ingredients though were dirt and other disgusting things we’d find outside.
That’s really naughty? They’d drink them?!
Oh yeah, fell for it every time.
Got any hidden talents, besides evil drink maker?
I have a crazy memory for useless pop culture facts. Oh, and I can wiggle my nose.
You’re stranded on an island, what two items would you bring?
Easy, man. Pen and paper. And my bible. Ok, that's three. Skip the paper.
