Who are you wearing?

Ben Sherman jacket, Converse One Stars.

Can your monkey do the dog?

My monkey IS my dog.

Best part of being in a chick biker gang?

The Tupperwear parties.

What's the name of your biker gang nemesis?

The Turd Burglars.

Favorite girl drummer?

SO many!

Most historically influential: Mo Tucker

Best feel: Miriam Linna (A-Bones)

Most solid: Bella Donna (Cocktail Slippers), Linda Pitmon (Steve Wynn) and Gina Schock (The Go-Go's)

Most original: Helen Wiggin (The Shaggs)

If you built your own guitar, what would it be like?

'65/'66 Jaguar neck with rosewood fingerboard. '65/'66 Jaguar body - Lake Placid blue (matching headstock). Mother of pearl pickguard. Some kind of fatty, dirty pickups (hi-output). Jodi Head guitar strap. I would have somebody else wire it though. I've ruined a few guitars trying that myself.

Would you rather wear the same clothes for a week and shower every day, or wear different clean clothes every day and not shower for a week?

I've done this. It's called a 'Clothes Marathon.' You wear the same clothes every day and sleep in them, but you can take showers. There's no time limit though - it ends when the first person quits. Let's just say I won (Andy!), but I gotta take the showers! I've also slept in my clothes and worn them to the next night's gig - just throw on a sparkly jacket. I don't think I have the girly-girl gene.

Best three things to buy together at a hardware store to freak out the cashier?

Latex suit, air-pump, gas mask.

Favorite cartoon?

The Archies, of course. Their band kicks ass and Veronica rocks a bitchin' Farfisa!

Do you speak jive?

I think jive, which is way more potent.
