How does it feel to be on a Rock N Folk compilation for the month of July...with Santana?

Kenny: Makes me want to whip out the Conga drums and a spleef.

Laura: Intrigued yet amused.

John: We're on a compilation with Santana??? Oye Come Va!

Rikki: I am so very excited to be on the compilation, especially with Santana. Makes me want to dance around my house with the blinds drawn. 

Devon: I feel so blessed to be on the Rock N Folk compilation. I'm so ecstatic we can reach people through our music...with Santana. It brings out the Black Magic Woman in me.

.

Do you have the best hair in the rock n roll scene?

Kenny: Yes, mine is the best.

Laura: I would like to think so!

John: No, but I own the best hair salon in Rock N Roll! (Manic Panic Salon of Highland Park)

Rikki: Nope, I think our keyboard player has the best hair!

Devon: If we were talking only shags, I'd give myself 3.5 stars for effort. Bed-head lions mane look??? I've got that one down. Laura has the prettiest hair for sure!

What's the best pick up line someone has used on your singer?

Kenny: I only hear the worst.

Laura: No comment.

John: Never heard anyone try. (Her boyfriend is from Detroit).

Rikki: No comment.

Devon: "Excuse me miss, do you have a cigarette? Actually I don't smoke, I just wanted to start a conversation..."

Fuck/Marry/Kill: The Fuzztones/Buzzcocks/Little Steven.

Kenny: Err... Hold hands on the first date?

Laura: I don't understand the question. Love The Buzzcocks & Little Steven.

John: I don't have to kill The Fuzztones, they've been beating a dead horse since I left in 1990. Love the Buzzcocks, met them in '77 and played a gig with them in 2012 and they are still cooler than shit! Little Steven is okay by me. He employs Handsome Dick Manitoba & the Mighty Manfred, two friends of mine.

Rikki: Marry Little Steven, fuck The Buzzcocks, and kill The Fuzztones. 

Devon: Can I trade in a Kill for a Fuck? Ha ha. Let's combine The Fuzztones & The Buzzcocks into one Fuzzcock! And marry Little Steven.

What would make you kick someone out of bed in the morning?

Kenny: Crackers... definitely.

Laura: Farting.

John: Have you seen my wife? Are you crazy? Kick her out of bed?? I don't think so!

Rikki: I would kick someone out of bed if I didn't recognize them in the morning.

Devon: Sunshine exposing their excessively hairy back!

What's the biggest fashion faux pas in the rock n roll scene these days?

Kenny: Facial hair.

Laura: Hooker shoes & tight spandex pants.

John: Ski hats in the summer. I mean, ski hats?? Really?????

Rikki: Fashion Faux Pas = neon tribal prints.

Devon: Ear gauges.

What's your message to the kids?

Kenny: Don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.

Laura: Stay in school, cause there ain't no money in rock n roll no more!

John: Clean up your fuckin room!!. Oh, I thought you meant message to MY kid.

Rikki: My message is to go after what you really love because nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else.

Devon: You can strive to have/be/do anything you want....also always remember to floss!
