    From my perspective, the songs go in a sense of chronological order (if you follow the myth of Johnson selling his soul). Crossroad was recorded first, and it was the song that started that mythology. His end decision isn't really defined, so you are left to wonder.

    With Hellhound, no need to wonder. The Devil is after him, and he's got to keep moving. I still say this is the best song he ever did. Not playing per se, but vocally. Extremely powerful. You feel like you are running with him.

    Close second favorite would be Terraplane Blues. Love the sexual metaphor. Brillaint. Simply brilliant.

    I can't stand in the way of young love.

    Name of the ship would be the Light Fantastic.

    I am so happy to hear you say this. Or read you write this. whatever. I agree 100%. seems like Hellhound gets overlooked sometimes.

    I would be with my Wife and Son, somewhere a bit isolated. I picture a small house/cabin overlooking the Oregon, or Washington coast. I would wake to the smell of salty air, and the sound of gulls.

    A wonderful breakfast of french toast and sausage would be consumed, and then we would go out for hike along the coastline. We would have packed a lunch for later so when we found the perfect spot, we could eat. My Son and I would throw a frisbee on the beach. We would find a nice spot to eat, looking out over the water, listening to the crashing of waves on the rocks. I would have brought my guitar along, and I would play some there.

    After lunch, we would walk back to the house. Once there, we would play games, and enjoy each other's company. For dinner, I would grill lobster and steak out on the patio that overlooks the ocean. My Wife and I would have a fine red wine with our meal. Once my Son was in bed, my wife and I would light a fire, and enjoy the moonlit sky until we both fell asleep on the couch, listening to the waves.

    It doesn't surprise me, as Crossroad has had so many different versions done, etc. Hell, it was even a movie with the karate kid.

    I've only seen the Recruit and Phonebooth. Of those two, I would have to say the Recruit by Al Pacino's nose.

    Downingthief,
    I'll ask you my usual questions;
    A movie is being made about your life - who plays your role and what songs are on the soundtrack?
    Also, you get your own record label - what's it called and what kind of music do you put out?

    What is your recollection of the old tv series aquaman and do you think it should revived as a series or cinematic sequel type movie?

    Also, what is your opinion of Evlis Presely's contribution to music and how it effects today's various genres?

    What is your favorite food ethnicity?

    Was this question a joke? If it wasn't you surely would have included In Bruges, because that is without a doubt his best work.

    I will go with John Cusack. He has the "every day guy" kind of look about him, so I will go with him.

    Songs...wow. So many choices. "Perfect Circle" by REM would have to be on there, simply because it is a great song. "Magnificent Seven" would have to be played during the closing credits. Opening credits would be "I wanna be Adored" by the Stone Roses. For one of the love scenes, I would want "Fade into You" by Mazzy Star.

    I actually came up with a label name long ago with a friend of mine. We wanted to call our label "Broken Stool Records". Reason being, is we were recording one night, and the stool that I was sitting on broke, and I fell hitting my back on an amp. Our way of making the damage permanent, I suppose!
    I hate limitations, so I would have no format restrictions. Just whatever I thought was good.

    I actually liked Aquaman as a kid. Always fascinated with anything to do with the ocean. That being said, Aquaman by himself was dreadfully boring. Hopefully, Entourage is the only place we will ever hear about an Aquaman movie.

    Elvis' contribtution was massive. He brought what used to be only "black" music to a mainstream audience. If it wouldn't have been him, it would have been someeone else, but he deserves the credit for doing it. I would argue that he wasn't really the FIRST one (Bill Haley and the Comets, for example was popular before Elvis). You can say that Elvis was the first white singer to actually sound black, though. There were many reports of people thinking he was black before they saw what he looked like.

    I love most ethnic foods, but I will have to say Mexican.

    Do you cook very often?

    What is your favorite spice to use in cooking? Like, one that you use in most of the cooking you do?


    Ok, same question, but now the answers of "garlic powder (and derivatives)," "onion powder (and derivatives)," and "salt (incl. kosher and sea varieties)" are disallowed. And pepper.

    MMmmmm...cooking.

    I love fresh basil. Two of the my favorite concoctions call for that. Second favorite would have to be sage. LOVE the smell of it cooking.

    When choosing between gold and yellow, what is the shape of an aardvark on Christmas being chased by tapirs and okapis? Qualify your response with examples from The Origami Handbook.

    My standard three starters:

    1. If you HAD to genocide a group of people but the criteria for who deserves to be exterminated can be anything you want... what group would die and why?

    2. What was the most shocking thing you ever realized about your own self?

    3. Who's your favorite poster?

    The aardvark is nature's most festive creature, so without a doubt he/she would be something like this:
