>1. What Do You Think Of The New Cd Collide?
I really like our new album collide. I think that it is the most mature
skillet album yet. I think that it has a lot more put into it than past albums... This is really my first whole album I've
done with the guys so it's kinda weird. But i had a blast. I would get to the studio early on in the morning and mess around
on pro tools trying to come up with different weird ideas.. That was awesome.. A few things made it like the intro to forsaken...
also, i really felt like we all had our piece of influence on it. mine being all the acoustic guitars and "nicer" guitar parts...
haha. I took classical guitar for ages so I think that's where it came from...
>2. Was This Your Best pice of mad guitar skills on the cd ?
hmm.. if you looke at my answer to the first question that might be part of this answer as well... my fave guitar part
is hm... probably the bridge of savior. I guess it's in the verses too. It started in just the bridge with the acoustics but
then we decided to take out the electrics in the verse cuz they weren't very cool. It really changed the whole feel of the
>3. If you had the chance to chose where the next cd will go what will the sound be? for example grundge, hard rock
, ska etc....
Hm.. i would stick to doing lots of the same stuff on collide. maybe taking it one step further with dynamics. Not having
the rock rock stuff all the time but building up to that. Like in a piece of classical music there might be only one part
that is "heavy" the rest builds around it... I dunno though. I'm sure all our styles will change by the next album...
>4. If john told you that the band is changing position what instrument would you want to play?
Cello. Just kidding..
well, if i could play anything that would be it.. but if it had to be something already in the band i would do keys. i secretly
play the piano and love messing with crazy parts and stuff...
>5. What is your most embarrassed moment on the road?
we were driving overnight and we had stopped to get gas.
This is back in the van days so we drove ourselves.. it was my turn to drive so I go inside and get a coffee and a donut and
go back to the van. I start it up and put it into drive. All of a sudden there's this really really loud bang. And I'm thinking,
"CRAAAAAAAAP....." I turn to John who was sitting in the passenger seat and he goes "Did you forget to take the pump from
out of the tank?" Silence... "Did you even pay for the gas?" continued silence... haha... luckily the pump broke away from
it like it was designed to so there was no damage..
>6. Tell me what is your must favorite joke or sayings from John ? hmmm. I dunno honestly.. we have sooooooo many
inside jokes. being around each other all the time you get to know one another like nothing else.. I usually know what He's
gonna say before he says it. I'm usually laughing at his jokes before He even says them. i think those moments are great.
>7. If you had a chance to play where ever you want to play a 2 hour show where will it be at? ( I hope its Knoxville,tn
hmm... i loved playing new zealand.. that place rocked like nothing else.. oooohhhh but the door in dallas was definitely
our best show ever.. between those two...
>8. Where do you got your rock outfits from?
JC penney... just kidding.. i shop all over.. sometimes at really
preppy places like the gap. there's not a lot of cool clothing for guys so you have to look through a lot of dumb stuff..
i like shopping on melrose in LA. it's my favorite place to shop but it's really expensive...
>9. Do you like the black beast a.k.a your guys tour bus?
yeah, it doesn't even compare to having a van.. it is
millions times better. plus we have our own driver so we get to sleep all night.. we are very blessed to have it..
>10. Will you guys play at Knoxville,TN any time soon lol ?
Not to my knowledge.. although i never know where we're
playing... check our website...
>11. You ever thought of makeing a video for ardent record called Learning guitar with Ben Kasica ?
haven't ever thought about it.. i dunno if it would sell. I don't know tons about guitar.. i just play what i think sounds
