I'm doing very well, thanks for asking.
3 Coffee, tea
To quote Eartha
Kitt, "A big, Big, BIG Yacht"!
4 What's on
your CD player right now?
Not to seem
too narcissistic, but I'm listening to ME! I'm going into the
studio in the next few months and I'm in the process of sifting
through a bunch of home demos that may make it onto my first
full-length album called CRUCIFY.
5 What is your
fondest memory of Donna?
up here in Toronto in I believe it was '83 or '84 for the SHE
WORKS HARD FOR THE MONEY tour. After the concert she made an
announcement that if anyone wanted to know about what changed
her life to stick around. So I stuck around and eventually she
came out. There were a handful of people and she proceeded to
sit on a stool and talk to us about being a Born Again Christian.
It was SO COOL to have such an intimate experience with my favorite
6 Vinyl records
I love them
both. I like the SIZE of the Vinyl packaging and the sound quality
7 Which is
the Donna Summer album you play more often?
WITHOUT CLAWS. BAD GIRLS. ONCE UPON A TIME just to name a few.
8 What is the
most appalling thing you've ever listened to?
ya know that kid from American Idol.
9 Is there
a Donna song you just can't stand?
what were they thinking, poor Fred.
10 What does
SOMETIMES LIKE BUTTERFLIES mean?
It means those
damn butterflies are out of my head and on CD where they belong!
11 When did
you last shout ENOUGH IS ENOUGH?
Over the weekend.
I yelled out "ENOUGH! I CAN'T GO ON I CAN'T GO ON NO LONGER"!
12 You switch
the radio on and the disc jockey announces Donna Summer's new
single. What do you do?
I scream like
13 Is talent
a gift or a goal?
Or a curse!
I know some incredibly talented people who are having a hell
of a time trying to make it and it can be discouraging. You know
you're talented and come up against roadblocks and then you see
someone like William Hung who gets a recording contract! What's
up with that! Talent can be a real double-edged sword.
14 What do
you think of ORDINARY GIRL (the book)?
I haven't read
15 Do you have
a favorite movie?
I cried when I first saw it. I guess because I could relate.
Ya know I'm just a welder trapped in a singer's body - HA HA!
16 What is
your drug of choice?
booze and my Mary Jane CD's!
17 Do you ever
dance to Donna's music?
I love shaking
my groove thang to YOU'RE SO BEAUTIFUL.
18 SUMMER FEVER
or WINTER MELODY?
19 What's on
your bedside table?
I refuse to
answer this question on the grounds that it may incriminate me.
20 Donna (and
Gershwin) not being available, who you wanna have dinner
Oprah or Madonna!
21 Is love
really the healer?
I believe WE
are our own healers. Sometimes we may need a catalyst and LOVE
can be that catalyst.
22 What is
it that makes life worth living?
my goals and watching then materialize in whatever form they
may take. That keeps me going. I believe that I was put here
to spread a certain message and that is "WE ARE ALL PERFECT...
WITHIN OUR OWN IMPERFECTIONS."
23 If not for
be suffering from SUMMER FEVER AND I NEED A NEW STUDIO ALBUM
FOR MY FIX! That's my story and I'm stickin to it!
