When you are not in the studio, where can we find you?
That’s easy…on my couch! Actually, I spend a lot of time at home but I do work out there and cook a lot, so I’m not always a lazy a**.
3 words that describe you?
Cranky, smart and impatient. Really makes you want to meet me, huh?

I have a pet cockatiel. When she screams because she’s mad at me for something, it’s the most shrill, obnoxious sound you can imagine. (I try to stay on her good side)
What’s in your fridge right now?
Some milk, maybe cold cuts, and TONS of condiments. It’s funny how I have so little food, but every different topping or sauce known to man.

It would have to be a rock star. Keith Richards would probably be the one.

West. I’ve been to California once and Arizona once and I’d love to see more of each state.

’64 Olds Cutlass. That thing had an enormous engine and it HAULED. Got a lot of tickets in that thing.
