All month long we are running the Soundwave Festival Quickies – where we issue a band playing at the festival 7 quick questions.
Your name and what you do in the band?
Benjamin Weinman. Guitar.
Steven Seagal or Chuck Norris and why?
Steven Seagal because I think he would honestly beat Chuck in a real fight and because he plays guitar. I met him at some guitar dork thing.
What are you looking forward to the most about playing at the Soundwave Festival?
The Weather. I’m probably going to leave NJ freezing and covered in snow.
List 3 essential items that you don’t leave home without.
Phone, keys, wallet. Sorry that was boring.
Ok lets try again…
Chain saw, monkey, laser beam watch that cuts through anything including metal and stone.
Favorite/funniest festival experience?
Man that is a hard one. Probably when we played Reading fest in the UK and Greg pooped on stage. Not the actual pooping but seeing him rub the poop on his shirt while he was trying to get some lyrics out and watching him gag. It was funny. He couldn’t get the words out cause it smelled so bad…
The best 80’s movie other than ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ ?
Labyrinth. I mean David Bowie, Puppets, and Jennifer Connelly.
Who would win in a fight, Lemmy or God?
Motor head are rock Gods but if you are telling me that God definitely exists.. well in that case.. .come on! Lemmy can’t shoot lightning bolts down on my ass.
