If you could go back (or forward) to live in any decade, when would you choose?
Probably the ’70s. Bowie, Bolan, Zeppelin …
Who would be your dream co-writer?
If a song started playing every time you entered the room, what would you want it to be?
4’33” — John Cage
What is the one thing you can’t survive without on tour?
WTF Podcast. It helps me stay awake and alert during the long, monotonous drives.
What are you most afraid of?
People giving free drugs to my bandmates before a set.
Who is your celebrity crush?
Pickles or olives?
Nothing beats a good pickle.
Plane, train, or automobile?
Automobile, although it depends on the vehicle. We’ve gone cross country in a mini van, as well as an RV, both terrible ideas for a touring band. Our current vehicle, a Dodge Sprinter, is perfect for a band our size — great gas mileage, plenty of space, handles like a dream.
Which is worse — rainy days or Mondays?
Mondays. I like rainy days. We don’t get enough of them in Colorado.
