One Question Interviews: Dopamines

Jon Lewis (Dopamines)

SPB: Do you take any precautions to stay healthy while on the road?

Lewis: Typically I'll stock up on multi vitamins or those "EmergenC" powder packets. Jon W and Michael rely on a force field of porn and chicken wings to prevent illness. Mikey Erg wears a full body latex suit between shows to block harmful fatty acids from penetrating his leathery Mr. Burns skin. The suit is really fun at hotels because we rub him down with vegetable oil and slide him across the tile floor in indoor pool areas.

But honestly, none of these so-called "sure fire" [precautions] stop one or all of us from getting some sort of debilitating illness at the worst possible time on tour. Collectively we're a pretty self-destructive band health wise, especially on the road. Maybe it's one of those cases where you take no precautions to prevent illness, and as a result you become immune to more shit? If only that theory could work on our live shows.
