Tim Snape is a bit of a local hero in Sydney. While other people are scrounging together money to split a cab Tim Snape rolls up to the party in a 74 Benz. He is the founder of the now legendary Egyptian 1970-1979 parties and in a few weeks time will take up residence at the Waldorf Hotel in Vancouver. I thought I would disturb him for a few minutes and ask him some shit.
Intertoto: If you could have any car in the world what would it be?
Tim Snape: 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby in black with white racing stripes or a 1967 Ferrari GTB in black
I: What’s your favourite Bond film?
I: If you were on death row for some reason what would your last meal be?
TS: A bucket of KFC chicken and an old fashioned, is this for your blog?
I: Yep. Clinton or Churchill?
I: Tell us about this Vancouver thing.
TS: I’ve been offered a job playing music at my friend’s nightclub in Vancouver. It’s a boutique hotel/nightclub/live music venue/art gallery. I’ll also be living in the hotel indefinitely and working on my golf swing.
I: I had no idea you played golf.
TS: I don’t, but now that I have all the time in the world, I’m going to take it up, and I’m also going to ski as much as possible.
I: What do you want to be doing when you are 40?
TS: I’d like to be in a position where I can frequently travel. Perhaps I’ll have a log cabin in the Sierra Nevada and a couple of horses, and a base in Sydney as well. I’d like to have a collection of classic cars and fire place where I can read books and drink fine liquor. A family would be nice as well, but that quite a way off I suspect.
And then he was off, presumably to practice putting in the office.
