Yeah, it’s nice to see what our fans are like, and to hear their opinions. Definitely.
Do you like to meet & greet fans after the gig? Any useful stage tips? Don’t take yourself too seriously. That’s important to remember, I think. What’s the worst thing ever thrown at you? Somebody threw a shoe at me once when we were setting up. I was told it was accidental, as he was just dancing too wildly. I didn’t really believe it, but I guess I’ll never know. Who’s invited to your aftershow party? Everybody who’s willing to get down. What’s your best tour story? We have a friend who used to come to nearly every single show with us. We have a lot of stories about him, but this one is an obvious highlight. We were eating dinner in southern France and this absolutely huge beetle jumped onto someone’s back. I freaked out, it was terrifying. Anyway, we decided to dare him to eat what was the biggest insect/beetle we had ever seen. And he did. It was incredible. Beyond words.
