My top five songs at the moment:
1. Da Bomb – Blue Quarter
"From the En'trance album. Blue Quarter are friends of ours from Vancouver. Previously from Canmore, before that, Montreal. Nice guys, though."
2. Can't Put My Finger On It – Ween
"From Painting the Town Brown – live stuff by the greatest live band ever. They played for four hours last time they were in Vancouver."
3. 911 Is A Joke – Public Enemy
"Flava Flav may be my favourite MC (besides Chris Berry... Hi Sweetie!)"
4. Olé Mulholland – Frank Black
"From Teenager of the Year. I've listened to more Frank Black than anything else the last couple of years."
5. Wake Up – Three Days Grace
This is my cousin Adam's band. He's the sexiest man in Canadian Rock. Seriously, look it up! (Chart Magazine, September 2004).
Last Words :
"I'd like to include Jimi, Neil, Jeff Buckley and John Lennon, Beck,
Bjork, James Brown and Muddy Waters.… Aside from that: support minor hockey, buy locally and listen to college radio."
