First Tracks (Music That Wakes You up. Please explain.)
“Busted” by “The Black Keys” on the big come up. It just gets me fired up!
On a sunny epic pow day I usually get down with the reggae. “Herbalist” by Alborosie.
Jib song (Favorite song to jib to)
I’m not too much of a jibber but I get down with the WU! “Iron Flag” by Wu Tang Clan from Iron Flag.
Rock Ride (What song pumps you up the most during a session)
“Seer” by Witch from Witch.
Cool Down (what’s your mellow post riding song)
“Boxcar” by Neil Young from Chrome Dreams.
or “Terrapin Station” by the Grateful Dead.
Pre Aprés (What do you listen to before you go out at night)
“Black Irish” by The Devil Makes Three from Long John’s Boots and a Belt.
Or “That’s What’s Up” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros from Here.
What is your favorite video part song of all time?
Lucas Huffman’s part with “Gimmie” Shelter by The Stones
What video part song you’ve used have you been most stoked on?
“When The Levee Breaks” by Led Zeppelin.
If you could be one rock star who would it be?
Neil Young, because he’s seen it all.
Simply Guilty pleasures (What are you ashamed to admit you actually like
I really like to stretch or fall asleep to the “Amelie” soundtrack; it’s mellow and reminds me of Jeff Anderson.
Turn it down (Music you can’t stand)
Dubstep. It’s not music to me.
Turn it off (Worst song ever?)
