How are you?

Great!

Crue Fest 2 kicks off this weekend. What are you most looking forward to?

There are many things! The crowds, the bands, the drinks!

What can fans at Crue Fest expect from you guys?

A kick ass rock and roll show!

Howd the band get hooked up with Nikki Sixx and signed to Eleven Seven Music?

Our demo of "Let's Rock N Roll" was being played on 98 Rock in baltimore and they liked what they heard so Nikki signed us!

Your new album, Lets Rock-N-Roll, mixes AC/DCs big rock sound with some more subtle blues tones. What was your battle plan going into recording?

No plan really. I put mics on stuff and recorded as quickly as I could!

Who are some underrated bands that you think deserve more attention?

The D4 (from new zealand). The hives, kix, the vines, rose tattoo

What have you been listening to recently?

The black keys

If you could have written any song what song do you wish you had written and why?

"Aint no rest for the wicked" by Cage the Elephant. They tapped the delta blues and coupled it with a great lyric! I freakin love it and am so jealous!

Anything you would like to add?

Nope except to say: Thanks for having me!

Thanks very much for your time!
