My five favourite songs right now:

1. Welcome To Hell — The Hellacopters

"These guys are the Swedish chefs of rock ’n’ roll. I would never sell my soul, but if I did it would be to join this band."

 

2. Mudhead — The Supersuckers

"Eddie Spaghetti sure can write ’em. This song is perfect."

 

3. Lungs — Townes Van Zandt

"Old Townes haunts me in my sleep and he’s playing this song."

 

4. Wide Awake — The Fall Of Summer

"The name says it all. I could live in this song."

 

5. Song No. 6 from the album "Blue Horse" — The Be Good Tanyas

"The angels of Mountain music from Nelson, B.C. This song breaks my heart. I think it’s about some crazy girl…"

 

Last words….

"Heartbreakers and tail shakers… keep em comin’.
