A lot of your songs talk about drinking, but if you could write and perform someone else's song, what would it be and why?
Oh, Jesus. Uh...I would say "Symphony of Destruction," by Megadeth. Because it's all [plays a rhythm on knee, vocalizes electric guitar sounds], you know? It's just fun to play, no bullshit.
Would you say that Megadeth is an influence on any of your songs?
No. Maybe. Well, yeah, I guess they are, indirectly. I definitely share the bitterness of Megadeth, and a little bit of musical style with Metallica. I have been into them for so long, I'm sure they have influenced my music in some ways. Have you read the Metallica comic books?
Metallica comic books? No, but I'm going to eBay that when I get home tonight. So, are there any plans for a new record in the near future, and if so, will it be recorded in a studio like At Home With Owen, or in your mom's house like some of your previous records?
Yes, there is a new record on the way. And it was recorded in a real studio this time.
It has already been recorded?
Well, I would like to think it is about two-thirds finished.
Did you play all of the instruments yourself, or did you enlist some outside help?
I hired some really talented people to play stuff that I couldn't, and right now I'm still waiting for those parts to be recorded. Then we will be a lot closer to the release.
Can't wait. So, you hail from Chicago. Did you bear witness to the acceptance speech of the president-elect to these United States?
Oh yeah, I was there.
On the record, did you vote for Obama?
Fuck yeah, I did. What about you?
I didn't vote.
You are retarded.
