Hey everyone! Summer is almost over and school is beginning. Heidi Hutchinson's newest release, Tectonic, is out tomorrow!!!!! Before I get too busy, I decided to visit with the guys from the band, Double Blind Study. They might tell you different, *clears throat* but this interview was entirely voluntary and they are super excited! I caught up with the guys at their latest tour stop and demanded, I mean asked, some great questions. Check it out!
Lenny: Running is the best!
Lucy: Running is the worst.
Angie: I agree with Lucy! If I'm running, someone is chasing me!*looks hopefully at Sway and winks*
Mike: And I like to fish. *looks at the interrupting girls* I like the peace and quiet.
Blake: You eat ALL the time.
Harrison: *shrug* I like to eat.
Angie: I suggest you listen to a little George Strait or Kenny Chesney and get in touch with your country side. Girls really love those cowboys. *smiles sweetly while secretly picturing Mike in a cowboy hat*
Mike: We've been doing this a while now. There was a time when we used to think that all we needed was our instruments. But that's just not true. You start sharing a van with four other dudes and you realize what the most important things in life are *lists them off on his fingers one at a time* One: deodorant *the rest of them nod along emphatically* Two: toothpaste, Three: Soap, Four: Water, Five: Fuel.
Blake: Or find the right dumpster at the right time. Don't look at me like that, Angie. It's not as bad as it sounds. *wink*
Mike: But you can't risk hating each other. The instruments don't make the band. We do. If we're not getting along, the entire show is screwed. There's five of us. We're the five things the band has to have in order to work.
Angie: *looks out of the corner of her eye at Blake* I’m going to pretend I didn’t hear the dumpster comment. *looks at the rest of the guys* I love that you depend so heavily on one another, but Luke, I assumed Lenny would be in there somewhere…Funniest thing that has happened while on tour? *looks at Sway with a pointed look* and keep it clean.
Harrison: Shut it, dick.
Mike: Ha, ha! That's right! I was being interviewed after a show by the local radio station. Went back to the buses and they just weren't there.
Lenny: That had to have been before I was around.
Mike: All my credentials were on the bus. I had no money, no phone, no identification. I hitchhiked to the next venue. I got lucky and some college girls drove me the whole way.
Luke: It's not that often.
Harrison: One time we added a new song to the lineup and I was so nervous about playing it for the first time that I played an entirely different one. The band covered for me though and changed over to what I was playing. But I was pretty embarrassed.
Blake: Harrison also doesn't like to go shirtless. But it gets hot under those lights. Especially when you've been playing for an hour. He went to take off his shirt for the first time and got his head caught. He panicked and nearly ran off the end of the stage.
Harrison: Thanks for making me feel super cool in front of Angie, you guys.
Angie: Harrison, you’ll always be cool to me **stares at him and smiles dreamily**
Angie: I’ve only done it once and I promise not to do it again!
Angie: Luke that’s sweet. Sway, I think that fan may have wanted more than your pants…just sayin’. *gives him a look* All of you have had the opportunity of traveling all over the world. If you had to choose, what is your favorite place to tour/and or vacation?
Lucy: Even if I get on the wrong train and get us lost in Chicago?
Blake: *reaches over to hold her hand*there's worse things than being lost with you.
Angie: Texas is nice and it contains all of the above, plus cute Texas girls.*wink* With Luke and Blake finding love and settling down, I want to ask, do you believe in love at first sight? Soulmates?
Angie: **mumbles under her breath** Bet I know what makes it so Amazing….
Sway: What?! No I'm not!
Luke: Dude, you so are.
Sway: Just because I don't live like a pig doesn't mean I'm a clean freak.
Harrison: *gasp* you promised not to tell anyone that!
Angie: Harrison, when this is over do you mind sharing what you use? *reaches out to touch his hair* Your hair looks so soft.
Luke: *chuckles uncomfortably* I have no idea what you're talking about.
Sway: You jumped out of the shower screaming like a woman until I went in and killed it for you.
Luke: It was the size of my fist!
Sway: wouldn't you like to know *wink*
Harrison: she's married, man.
Sway: Doesn't make what I said untrue.
Angie: **giggles and blushes** Is it hot in here?? Just me? *wipes sweat off her forehead* Okay, moving on. *takes one more look at Sway and winks* Mike, what about you?
Angie: Damn straight! I like the way you think Mike! As a band, and individually you have had many successes, what is your biggest regret?
