What work of art makes you feel all the things?
The Last Waltz, the concert film of The Band's final show, by Martin Scorcese. If I can keep viewings to under 10 times a year, it's showing restraint.
Where on earth do you feel most like yourself?
In a rehearsal studio playing music with bandmates and friends.
What is your most awkward talent?
Despite being in my 40's, I'm a globally rated FIFA soccer video game player. It satisfies the competitive urge after being too old to be good at actual sports.
Favorite swear word.
I like replacing swear words with famous movie titles. For example "Lord of The Rings It's Hot Out" or "Dances With Wolves That's a Great Piece of Pizza" Don't judge me, it's funny I swear.
