Favorite Star Wars Character:
Vader, who else?
Verses are an artificial division of a text which is meant to be read in much larger units, so I prefer chapters. My favorite chapter of the Bible could be Genesis 50, but I’m not really committed to that answer.
Favorite Worship Song:
Christ is risen by Matt Maher
Don’t really go to many. But probably “Duck Soup”

Wacky and interesting facts about you that no one would normally know:
Third arm, very useful.
Best band moment or memory:
Really its an ongoing event. I love when I get messages from people from other countries about how we have helped and encouraged them. I have literally had these sorts of messages from six continents and dozens of countries. I also love getting them from military personnel.
Funniest band moment or memory:
One time after we played a show with the setting sun right in our eyes our trombone player Dan wasn’t feeling so well. He was laying down back stage feeling sick to his stomach and he got up and took off the lid of a big trash can. Just as he was projectile vomiting into this trashcan the girls from a very squeaky clean group called “Avalon” come out of their dressing room. The looks on their faces were part alarm, surprise, revulsion, and maybe, just a little attraction.
Worst or most embarrassing band moment:
There’s at least one every show.
Favorite Show or Tour and Why:
Early in our career we played a show in Denver opening for two of my favorite punk bands; The Bouncing Souls, and the Descendents. Later in our career Bill Stevenson the drummer of the Descendents produced our live album and said he liked our music, getting a compliment from one of your musical heroes is a pretty special thing for a musician.
Do you prefer beach, mountains, or forest?
I live in Denver so I would be horribly amiss not to say, “mountains!”
Favorite Supertones Song:
Louder Than The Mob. Best lyrics of my early career.
Short bio: (including when you joined the band, family, etc). The details of my life are quite inconsequential. But very well, where do I begin? My father was a boulangerie owner with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My father would drink, he would womanize, he would make absurd claims like he invented the question mark, he would sometimes accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius posses and the insane lament…….
