#6
1)Who are you and what is your band/group called? And how many members?
we don't have a name yet, but i'm vying for "Delightful #7 and the Golden Crocodile" .

but seriously, we are probably going to go with something like "Pot-Hash". my bassist and drummer's last name is "Potvin" and my last name is "Hachey" (pronounced Hash-ay), so there is a good chance drugs will be referenced in the name

we have three ATM, but we want to incorporate some horns or some keys at some point.

2) What Genre of music are you?And are you Indie, Mainstream, or not signed? If signed who are you signed with?
not signed, but we want to record sometime this summer.

3) What are you known for musically?
playing the "King of the Hill" theme

4) What kind of guitars do you use? Are you sponsored by them?
see #5.

i wish i was sponsored. then i could have a signature piece of gear.

5) What about your Rig what does it consist of?
An Epi Les Paul, Two mid nineties strats, and a range of weird pawnshop guitars.

i use an Egnater Rebel 20 going into a 4x12 marshall Cab, in conjunction with a modded Dunlop Crybaby Wah, a Jimi Fuzz and some handmade pedals i got from Ebay.

6) What accessories do you use such as: Strings, Pics, Straps, etc.?
Dunlop Picks, usually 1mm tortex, or Fender Heavys. i use Levys straps and Ernie Ball Regular and Power slinkies. but on my black strat, i use 11-52 custom gauge strings.

7) As a guitarist, Who is your biggest influence?
Hard to say, but i would have to narrow it down to Duane Allman or Eric Clapton. Zakk Wylde and Slash played a huge role when i started playing, but I moved on after i found "Derek and the Dominoes".

8) Do you have a favorite piece of equipment? If so why?
my '95 Black American strat. me and my dad built it from pieces off of Ebay.

9) Do you have a LEAST favorite piece of equipment? Why?
probably my Rad Pawnshop guitar. the intonation is always slightly off because of the sh*tty bridge, but it's not noticeable to the crowd. only to me.

10) Does your music/style sound like anyone that's already out there?
I dont think so, but there's not too many 17 year olds who listen to blues anymore.

11) What would you say to all the aspiring guitarists out there?
always remember to have fun with music. You don't work music, you play it.

12) What do you don't like about OTHER guitarists?
that they all think it's about speed. i've never been impressed by someone who can shred 21000 note a second. play me Lenny with feeling, and that'll impress me.

13) Off subject, favorite food and beverage?
Milano's Cheese Burger (local delight) and an Arizona Ice Tea.

14) Finally, its your last show in your life, how do you go about it and what happens?
i would pay tribute to all those that have inspired me. play a **** load of covers, then go into our set. i would love to have some of the people i have worked with come on an play as well.

needless to say, it would be a five hour show.
