If Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and Mohammed were in a band together, who would play what?

Does a snare drum warrant a voice? Does the guitar get strummed? Are there harps still available in heaven?

If you were a candle, what scent would you be?

I wouldn’t ever be a candle, much less one with a scent.

What literary character or story do you most relate to?

Charleston Heston in the Ten Commandments

What’s your favorite word?


What’s your best physical attribute?


Which is your favorite Revival — Creedence Clearwater, Dustbowl, Elephant, Jamestown, New Grass, Tent, or -ists? 

I have always enjoyed Mr. Fogerty and the boys.


Timmy and his Teeth will be opening shows on the album release tour. He’s got a heart of gold, heavy gold, heavy metal. Goodness and beyond. Taking flight into the world we go. . -3/31 – @zoobarblues – Lincoln, NE -4/2 – The Maintenance Shop @isusub – Ames, IA -4/3 – @citywinerychi – Chicago, IL -4/4 – @the_ark_ann_arbor – Ann Arbor, MI -4/6 – @thehauntithaca – Ithaca, NY -4/7 – The Word Barn – Exeter, NH -4/8 – @lizardloungeclub – Cambridge, MA -4/9 – @parlorroommusic – Northampton, MA -4/11 – @highergroundmusic – Burlington, VT -4/12 – @mercuryloungeny – New York, NY -4/14 – @worldcafelive – Philadelphia, PA -4/15 – @jamminjava – Vienna, VA -4/20 – @thealtamonttheatre – Asheville, NC -4/21 – @neighborhoodtheatre – Charlotte, NC -4/22 – @roastingroom – Bluffton, SC -4/23 – @highdivegville – Gainesville, FL *not appearing with Timmy the Teeth* -4/24 – @strazcenter – Tampa, FL -4/26 – @eddiesattic – Decatur, GA -4/27 – @jedspirits – Opelika, AL

Are you more a thinking or feeling type?

Can one learn to differentiate the two?

Urban or rural?

I buy batteries at the department store, that power the security lights out back, which warn me if there is a critter attacking my chickens and goats.

Apple or orange?

Lemon or Lime?
