If you could trade places with one person for the day, who would it be?
Any one of my favourite musicians. Lead guitar specifically. I would love to rock out on stage in a real way even just for one night.
What is the first thing you notice about people?
One thing you can’t live without:
The people I love.
Favourite movie quote:
I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if you never take it seriously, you never get hurt, you never get hurt, you always have fun and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.
