does anyone have questions for Disashi Lumumba-Kasongo, guitarist for Gym Class Heroes? The interview will be posted on U-G eventually. I am interviewing him tomorrow.
#2
Ask him when the band will break up.

As for a serious response, I don't have one. Enjoy the interview though.

'When did FOB make you their sex slaves?'

Seriously, questions like his influences, his rig, touring, interesting stories. Boring stuff.

YES.


Also, bring Icyhot along... could provide endless humour if it was a video interview and you kept nudging it towards him and winking.

Ask if he enjoys dodgeball, pause for irony and then laugh and say "Get it!?! Haha the name you silly goose, the name." then gently caress him and say "Call me Pete. Just call me Pete."

You guys shouldn't be ****ting on him. The Gym Class Heroes are very talented unlike a lot of Mainstream bands/artists right now. Yes, they have had a lot of success with teenage girls, but why should that matter? I like their stuff, you guys are being ignorant if you don't at least check them out and not just what is on MTV.

I like them. I definitely think that they're better than most hip hop groups
#26
Actually ask him what his major influences are and what melodic techniques he likes to use to blend jazz, rock, reggae, and hip hop.

Thats gotta be amazing
#29
ask him if he listens to classical at all. Or funk.
A lot of their first record's guitar parts seem very classical inspired, particularly Taxi Driver and Make out club.

Ask him if he has any relation to teh Feudal Samurai Warlord from the Tokugawa Era in ancient Japan. If he says yes, ask him why he is a guitarist and not a Daimyo.

Ask him "Where the beef?"

Surely none of you kids will get that.





Ask him Why. Just Why.

See what he says.

And if you don't like a response he gives, you should oh so subtly imply that he's into dogging, and conjecture that his mother was a prostitute

I actually really like their cover of Under The Bridge. I found it on Youtube, and was expecting some sort of rap over the riff. The guy actually sung it though I was very impressed.

If it was on Scrubs, it's good. End of.


Ask him why they chose such a bad name for their band which will haunt him for the rest of their career and ultimately prevent him from becoming quite as famous and rich and respected as he might be with a half-decent name.

Or spend the entire interview asking him to get you free tickets to his next show.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
