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?
My name is Derek Kerswill and I play drums in Unearth, bitches!
Steven Seagal or Chuck Norris and why?
HAHAHAHA! Definitely Chuck Norris because everyone says I look like him! And let’s face it…..he’s the balls!
What are you looking forward to the most about playing at the Soundwave Festival?
Oh, I don’t know…..maybe the fact that NIN is playing! And, it’s going to be warm there while it’s freezing cold in Boston. And, I just love playing so I don’t give a shit where I am!
List 3 essential items that you don’t leave home without.
My (4) iPods, my laptop, and Starbucks gift cards.
Favorite/funniest festival experience?
My favorite is definitely playing Wacken festival this year with Iron Maiden! It was absolutely insane!
The best 80’s movie other than ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ ?
My favorite 80’s movie is hands down, without a doubt "Better Off Dead". I love Cusack and the chick that played Monique was so friggin’ hot in that movie. Plus, any movie where someone is estimating the street value of a mountain of snow as if it were a mountain of cocaine, that’s hilarious! On top of a kid chasing someone down for Two Dollars of paper route money……..AMAZING!
Who would win in a fight, Lemmy or God?
Lemmy, for sure. Have you seen that guy recently? He’s obviously won a fight with every year he’s been alive. I back that dude 120%!
