What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a part of me. I left it for awhile and it tore out a piece of my soul. Never again!

What is your music dream?

To just keep on playing, learning, growing and entertaining.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Just love. That's all there really is. Didn't a famous band say that once?

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Too many.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Way too many! But I'd have to say right now my classic favs are Dick Dale, Hank Marvin, Ritchie Valens. Contemporaries include Los Straitjackets––Eddie Angel and Danny Amis, Los Kahunas, The Bambi Molesters, Frankie Blandino and The Fathoms…this list is going to get WAY too long!

What inspires you to make music?

It just feels right. There's no better feeling in the world than having a good time and hooking up on a groove with a group of good people.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

None! No drama. No story. No meaning. NO WORDS! Just surf and love!

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

In the right place.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

It's amazing! When I first started, there were plenty of people making a decent living on the road, but the only way to make it big was through the labels. The internet has changed everything. Everyone has a shot and you can share your music all over the world instantly. Can't imagine what could be improved these days except maybe more musicians doing their own thing without worrying about becoming pop stars.

What do you think of Drooble?

Too soon to tell! Looks like a great platform. Looking forward to exploring more––then I'll modify my answer!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not doing it full time anymore! But that's OK, I do what I want!

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Going to shows, promoting our Brothers and Sisters online and keeping the buzz going. Organizing opportunities to showcase local groups––lots of good ones!

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Perseverance. Same as it always was.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

See above. I'll add The Dead Rocks, Blue Hawaiians, The Langhorns, Blue Stingrays, Sr. Bikini, Lost Acapulco, Los Coronas, Sufer Joe, Arizona Baby…I could do this all day!
