2. Is there a particular song or musical passage that never fails to move you emotionally?

“White collared conservative flashing down the street, Pointing their plastic finger at me. They’re hoping soon my kind will drop and die, But I’m gonna wave my freak flag high, high.

My drums, guitars and guns……..Gawd that sounds so white trash.

6. Who were you, or would you be nervous to meet?

Being in a Tribute band that fits in so many situations we get hired for a lot of private parties and festivals and such which has put us in the presence of a lot of high profile people and musicians and have been blessed to have played with a number of them as well so I kind of got over the star struckness of it all but I think Page, Plant or any of the Stones or Elton would be a pretty nervous time.

Touring. More touring and another rock project.
