Question timeR30;

How was the year 2009 for you?

2009 was a busy year. I really enjoyed putting out another album and playing a decent amount, but on that note I am also disappointed that we didn’t play as much as I had hoped for.

2010; What plans and high hopes do you have in store for next year?

Recording the next album is definitely on the top of my list of priorities at the moment. Also, we’re in the process of planning out some tours and show stints, so, we’ll see what happens with that.

What was your Musical Discovery of the year?

I really got into Queens of the Stone Age this past year, and I kept revisiting all my favorite White Stripes albums. It was a good year for revisiting some personal favorites.

Are there any bands/artists or albums that you have high hopes and are particularly excited about in 2010?

Maybe a new White Stripes album? I’m not sure yet…

If you had to pick one Experience and put it above the rest, what would that be?

Well, you can never beat a walk in the woods… I dig those times we all ‘click’ during rehearsals and rub off a new song or something…

Your Album Of The Year?

First Queens of the Stone Age album

Your Song Of The Year?

“Heart of Gold” Neil Young, “Mexicola” QOTSA, “Forever My Queen” Pentagram

Your Book Of The Year?

Your story of the year. Experienced something amazing, crazy, warm and fuzzy, special this year?

Story of the year… thats a tough one… a warm fuzzy one is easier: I saw a video of a 2 year old dancing around to one of our songs, made my day.

Do you have any upcoming shows in the next couple of months?

We have a January 7th show at the Grog Shop in Cleveland, Jan. 15th at Annabells in Akron and Feb. 27th at the Lager House in Detroit. Theres more in the works and we’re constantly scheduling so keep checking back.

And finally as Christmas are sneaking up on us. What will be on your Christmas Dinner Menu?
