What's your musical guilty pleasure and when do you listen to it?
I guess maybe Van Halen, but I don't really feel guilty about listening to them at all.
Who is your favorite character on 'Mad Men' and what about them rules?
Don Draper. Besides being damn cool, I love the way he can verbally bitch-slap another man with the smallest amount of effort. I also love how he's this interesting dichotomy: a complete womanizer, yet instrumental in helping Peggy make her way in a male-dominated field.
What's the worst job you've ever had and why was it terrible?
Building houses in the middle of winter. Using metal tools when it's 35 degrees below zero ain't a good time.
Do you have a pre-show ritual?
I like to stay laid-back, just chill and have a beer before we get onstage. Don't overeat or eat anything too greasy. Just have a beer.
What's the craziest thing that you've seen at one of your shows?
A dude kept pulling his unit out during one of our shows. I don't know how he got the idea that it was something we were hoping to see.
Zombies or vampires?
Both are getting a little oversaturated, so let's go with werewolves. Love 'American Werewolf in London' (not Paris) and let's not forget 'Teen Wolf.'
What's your favorite cocktail?
When we're in the US, it's Long Island Iced Tea. Super strong, but minimal boozy taste. It's a dangerous path to go down.
If you were on 'Survivor,' what would be the two small items you would bring?
Left-handed scissors and a melon-baller.
Who were your first celeb crushes?
Debbie Reynolds in 'Singin' in the Rain' and Maid Marion from the animated Disney version [of 'Robin Hood']. You know, the fox.
Best album to unwind to?
Al Green, 'Call Me.'
If you didn't play music, what would you be doing right now?
Doing sports highlights.
If you won a Grammy, who would you thank first?
Ray Charles and the Beatles.
What are you reading right now?
David Halberstam's 'Breaks of the Game.'
What do you sleep in?
A beekeeper's outfit.
Best gift you ever got from a fan?
A homemade denim top hat to complete the full-on Canadian tuxedo.
