What religion are you? art is my religion
Does your religion effect your music? Yes I think so. When you've seen how a preacher can touch peoples hearts and lift their spirits. . .as a singer its like I want to do that too. Even if you don't agree with a religion, it still takes tremendous talent to empower the masses. . .whatever your medium is.
Any funny or interesting stories? After a show we packed up half the gear into Adam's Pick-up truck. He was doing about 45 and the tailgate pops open. . .spilling amps and pedal boards into on coming traffic.

What advantage do you have above other people because you play music? We get in free at a lot of clubs, free drinks. . .the usual.
What would you say to a kid who has no faith in himself? Go to church. That's the best way to learn about faith. You've got to evolve to survive in this world.
