Vinnie from Less Than Jake answers some questions for me!
I needed to get in touch with Vinnie from Less Than Jake when I had to make sure I was cool to play some Gamits song on my podcast, and then I got to thinking why not shoot him a few blog questions and get his quicks thoughts. Less Than Jake have been a favorite band of mine, and they have an awesome DVD coming out in June I believe that will be a great live one any die hard fan will love. It's featuring some full album shows they've done and concert footage from the past. Definitely keep an eye out for it, so here we go a few questions with Vinnie.
Brief introduction of yourself if you don't mind.
I'M VINNIE, I PLAY IN LESS THAN JAKE, I PLAY DRUMS, I WRITE LYRICS, I
TAKE MY DOG OUT, I LIKE TACO'S.
What's going on with Less Than Jake right now? I heard you guys are doing an EP.
WE ARE IN THE STUDIO AND RECORDING SOME SONGS, MAYBE AN EP, MAYBE NOT.
AT THIS POINT WE WROTE SOME SONGS AND WILL SEE HOW THEY COME OUT.
Since you're playing the Warped Tour, any good Warped Tour memories?
THERES ALWAYS GREAT WARPED MEMORIES, FIGURE 8 CIRCLE PITS IN BOSTON,
LIGHTNING STRIKING IN CHICAGO, WATCHING NOFX EVERYDAY, HEARING DAG
NASTY STORIES FROM BRIAN BAKER.
How did that Anthology Dvd come about?
WE DID 6 FULL ALBUM SHOWS YEARS AGO AND WHEN AND HAVING THIS ANTHOLOGY
HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE PLAN.
What do you think about running a record label?
COMPLICATED, SHITTY, ENERGIZING, AMAZING - IT ALWAYS!
Awesome guy and so glad he took the time out of his BUSY schedule to shoot me back with his answers. Look for Less Than Jake on this year's Warped Tour and wherever else they might pop up.
