Bad habits? Come on, we all know I am perfect.
What is your most attractive feature? I think it's a tie between my height, my baby face, and my charm, OH YEAH BABY!
If you could assemble a band of musical greats from all of history, who would be in it? Victor Wooten on Bass, Eric Johnson on guitar, Jimmy Smith on Hammond B3 Organ, and of course me on the drums!
Tell me something that people don't know about another member of Zygote: Shlag is the sickest fucker out of all of us.
What's the strangest dream you've ever had? Malaria pills are known for giving people intense horrific fucked up nightmares, so while I was on them in Honduras, I dreamt that I was on the Concorde that crashed in Paris, and it was the most realistic thing ever.
Betty, Veronica, or Big Ethel? Betty, because it's always the innocent one who likes having oddly shaped objects rammed up her ass behind closed doors.
What is the best invention of all time? Without a doubt, the best invention of all time is a blow job. You just lie back and do nothing! It's sheer genius!
What's your favourite Zygote song, and why? Hmmm, this one is a toughie, I have feelings for every Zygote tune, I'll get back to ya'll on this one!
Dream occupation (other than musician): Professional Blowjob Receiver. You just lie back and do nothing! It's sheer genius!
What is your musical training/education? Been playing drums for 12 years now. Studied with various teachers within various styles. My brain hurt during the process, but it was worth it.
Favourite Zygote show of all time? Hmm, shit, so many come to mind. There is no one specific show. But, every show I can think of in which the place is rammed with crazy 'Gote fans, the vibe is there, etc, well, that counts as a fav. show.
Best concert you've ever seen? Definitely Rush, front row centre at Darian Lake during the "test for echo" tour. The tickets were free, and I also ate about 40 chicken wings in one sitting before the show!
What was the first song you learned how to play? "Wild Thing" by Ton Loc.
What other instruments do you play? Guitar, bass, and a tiny bit of woodblock and cowbell… I'm no Shlag though!
Favourite song by any artist? Too many to list!
When did you realize that music was your passion? When I realized I didn't give a shit about anything else.
