What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is the power to make ears bleed, shake buildings, and scare the taxpayers.

What is your music dream?

Wanna see my picture on the cover, wanna buy 5 copies for my mother, wanna see my smiling face on the cover of the Rolling Stone.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I would make all learn English: and then I would let the clever ones learn Latin as an honour, and Greek as a treat. But the only thing I would whip them for would be for not knowing English. I would whip them hard for that.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

"The Twist" by Chubby Checker

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Blue Oyster Cult, Nazareth, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Scorpions, UFO

What inspires you to make music?

Hot chicks that can press their chest against the wall without touching their nose, and can suck a golf ball through a garden hose.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Like Nigel Tufnel said, "Lick my Love Pump". I just can't say it any better than that.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Like Godzilla breathing fire and shaking the ground.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

The business sucks. It always has. I can't stand the idea of playing on "silent stages" with in-ear monitors. Further, anyone using any backing tracks during a live performance should be chain whipped !

What do you think of Drooble?

So far, it looks like a money making scam.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

When some simpleton asks me to turn down my amp.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I show up.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

A line array PA with at least 50,000 watts of clean power.
