Richard Hell & the Voidoids
The Dead Boys
Social Distortion and Husker Du were around by 1979 but probably not in a position to have realistically been signed, so I didn't count them.
I know I left a lot out but you said 6.
Tom, how much would I have to pay you to sleep with Brokendoll?
"power to compel"
i had originally put down "How much would I have to pay you to sleep with me?" but then I decided that was creepy so I changed it. For the record I mean no disrespect toward Beverly I just like poking a little fun at her. $1000.
Do you find yourself buying new or used? If you buy used do you ever wonder how much jizz, fecal matter, or dead hooker blood may be on said used item?
I have never bought used underwear, no.
What one book do you think should be required reading for every student?
What is your favorite smell?
Why haven't you and your family come to visit Hawaii/me?
describe your favorite childhood memory.
a quality you feel is important for everyone to have. And why?
and what artist or band has had the most significant impact in music? And why?
We did To Kill A Mockingbird in school - about eight years ago - and I don't believe that book has aged a day since it was written.
Proudest memory of the last five years?
So here's my weirdest childhood memory instead. According to my brain's recollection, this actually happened, though of course it did not. When I was about 4, i stood at the top of the stairs, looking down. And I decided I could fly. So I jumped, and tumbled, slowly, slowly, in the air, carefully, over, over, and then landed gently on my feet at the base of the stairs, intact. My 4 year old brain (or rather, my memory of my 4 year old brain) thought 'that was really cool' and shrugged it off and found something else to do.
- I think everyone should be more patient. Myself included. Especially me. There's such an "I WANT IT NOW" mindset in the US (and maybe other cultures). Give me convenience or give me death.
- I'm going to interpret your last question to mean 'rock music' or 'pop music' and not music in general, cuz then we'd have to go back to things like Bach. I don't think any one band has had any more impact on where pop music is today than the Beatles. That's a tired answer, I know, but I cant' think of a better one.
Tom, give is a your thoughts on Roger Ebert.
I'm also proud of the way my daughters have turned out. They're 19 and 15 now and they're good human beings that I am proud of.
I'm enjoying Tom's wisdom.
What would your last meal be?
