What was the first live concert you ever went to?
Kiss Asylum Tour

What is your funniest or worst tour experience?
Driving home in a snow storm. Took four hours to go what usually took an hour. Five minutes left before we are home and a snow plow throws a huge piece of ice into the air across the interstate and comes through the windshield. Everyone survived. But that snow plow guy had great aim.

What THREE things are a must have when you go on tour or play a show?
Great monitors (which are quite impossible), great food, big money!!! Most of which we never get.

What was the first record you ever purchased?
Kiss ‘Alive II’

If you had to record an EP of covers, which FIVE songs/artist would make the cut?
“New Mistake” by Jellyfish
”Band on the Run” by Paul McCartney & Wings”
King Creole” by Elvis
”Go all the Way” by The Raspberries
…. That was tough. There are so many great songs.

What’s your preferred music format – vinyl, CD, digital, cassette – and why?

I still have a great vinyl collection from the 70’s and 80’s, but I haven’t set up my record player in 10 years. I think digital is good because it’s the easiest and most portable. Hundreds of songs on something so small.
