One Question Interviews: Safety

Andy Diaz (Safety)

SPB: You break a string onstage during a song. What’s your strategy: attempt a BB King-style replacement while playing?

Diaz: If I break a string in the middle of a song, I simplify the chords until I have the opportunity to grab my backup guitar. For me, having a backup tuned and ready to go saves time, stress, and hassle. You can switch your A guitar with your B guitar in just a few seconds, so you can really minimize the downtime. A luxury, for sure, but a much safer bet than relying on my ability to do anything as cool as BB King replacing his guitar string in stride.
