In my spare time… I sleep I don’t have spare time when I am awake. Make the most of my time alive.
If You were stranded on an island and could only listen to one album it would be… Motley Crue – Red, White, & Crue (runners up would be Ozzy / Randy – Tribute and Black ‘N Blue – Ultimate Collection)
If You made a movie it would be about … Me, and You’d call it... You Thought You Knew But…
Who would You count on to rob a bank with you? Just me. Why? Havent you seen Goodfellas? Everyone else gets killed for fear of snitching. That happens in all of the big robbery movies (except The Italian Job) the more people, the more mouths to talk. Plus the more ways the money gets split, I’d want it all.
If you could be anyone for a day it would be… I like being me. But being Nikki Sixx for a day would be cool. Two really big bands, a radio show, a few books, a big company. Plus it would be cool to know what death is like while being alive.
If you could create your own rock & roll heaven for when you die it would… have a bunch of Ibanez basses, I would be jamming with Jimi and Bonzo, maybe Bob Marley and John Lennon would sit in, get Pac and Biggie to drop a few bars and have MJ and Prince do their thing to get the ladies dancing. Oh and have left eye drop some hooks.
