1. When were your rock doors blown wide open?

2. What posters were on your bedroom wall in High School?
None, painted it orange with green leaves and bubbles – pretty hard to get the walls white again when I moved out…

3. What was your last musical phase?
The aural (or auditive) phase.

Raw Jaw

6. Favorite band name?
I will give you one of my favorite song titles instead: “Punkrockcity Is Back In Town” (Los Banditos)

19. Who would you want to have do the soundtrack of your life?
Me. At least I always try…

20. What song pretty much sums you up?
