Who are you?

A guitar player from Tennessee. I try to write songs and make records too.

Who are you wearing?

Garanimals.

Favorite actor with three names?

Harry Dean Stanton, of course.

Why do all serial killers have three names?

I'm not sure, but when I finally snap and go on a killing spree, I'll let you know.

Best BBQ in Memphis?

I like Central BBQ. But all of it is good. On a scale of 1 to 10, Memphis barbecue starts at 9.

Best part of playing with Jack Oblivian?

I get to use a lot of fuzz and play real nasty, juvenile guitar. And he tells the most entertaining stories in the van.

Why can't you say no?

Because I love what I do, even when I shouldn't.

Elvis, Gene Vincent, Buddy Holly, Little Richard or Richie Valens?

Jerry Lee Lewis.

What would you do if you were me?

I'd buy my record. Maybe a few copies, even.

Any words of advice for the Tennessee youth?

Learn the bass and you'll never have to look for a gig.
