If Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and Mohammed were in a band together, who would play what?
Jesus would play drums because of his long hair head-banging abilities. Buddha would probably be very quietly playing a chapman stick. Krishna would be on keys/synth because she's the quiet one. And Mohammed would be the lead singer because he gets all the ladies.
If you were a candle, what scent would you be?
What literary character or story do you most relate to?
3hattrio relates best to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. We have our dark, mysterious side, along with our playful, energetic side. The characters themselves also work well for us, too. Greg is very much Sherlock: His ways are slightly unconventional and mysterious, but he always comes out at the end with a solution. Hal is sort of the opposite — Dr. Watson. He is very good at what he does, and keeps Sherlock from going too far over the edge. I (Eli) bounce between the two characters, depending on the situation. I can either swing toward Sherlock or Watson, and I think this provides a healthy balance in the band.
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Approximately 5 1/2
What's your best physical attribute?
My hair (Obviously)
Which is your favorite Revival — Creedence Clearwater, Dustbowl, Elephant, Jamestown, New Grass, Tent, or -ists?
Elephant Revival, for sure. The washboard/violin combo is fantastic.
Animal, mineral, or vegetable?
Animal because I'm fairly innocent most of the time, but can be aggressive in my music.
Rain or shine?
Rain, for sure. I look way better in a coat than a swimsuit.
Mild, medium, or spicy?
Medium. I like to ride that line between too hot and not hot enough.
