Gabe, our talented bassist, also wins the prize for best Q&A response. We’ll let you guess which one.
Which Muppet would make a perfect best friend for you? Fozzy is the man…I mean bear? He’s loyal, honest, and easy going. He’d also make the best copilot on any adventure.
Based on something you’ve already done, how might you make it into the Guinness Book of World Records? I am a master with the remote control. I can preview more stations on TV in one minute than anyone on this planet and still tell you the highlights of what’s on TV. This gift has a cost, however. My wife won’t let me hold the remote anymore. It’s been emasculating.
Describe the most memorable gig you’ve ever played. The best moment I’ve had on stage was at Kate’s Pub when this super cool, super hot girl, who I’d been talking to earlier, put her phone number in my pocket while I was playing. Then she left. I called her the next day and had our first date that night. Six months later, we got married. ¿Que romántico, no?
If you could be any current or past rock star, who would you be and why? Johnny Cash. His voice is timelessly BADASS. He’s the real deal. He’s the Man in Black. He is my ‘Elvis’.
Which cartoon character had the greatest influence on your life? Thundarr the Barbarian. It was a cheap, old school Hanna Barbara cartoon and a rip-off of Conan the Barbarian. He was a dude who wandered around, helping the innocent and protecting the weak with his buddy, Ookla the Mok, who was basically a rip-off of Chewbacca. It was influential because it was the only cartoon I remember my dad watching with me. He actually liked watching it! I learned that serious adults, like my dad, like cartoons, too. I am now not ashamed to admit that I am a grown man and I LOVE CARTOONS!
