1QI: Esmerine, Unbroken, White Widows Pact, Lagwagon

Welcome to our almost daily quickie Q&A feature: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook & twitter and we'll post an interview four days each week, typically every Monday-Thursday.

 

After our social media followers get the first word, we post a wrap-up here at the site and archive them here. This week check out Q&As with Esmerine, Unbroken, White Widows Pact and Lagwagon. 

Rebecca Foon (Esmerine)

SPB: What is your favorite 1960s artist?

Rebecca: Jimi Hendrix.

He probably fits under the category of people I would want to meet most as well. I have been inspired by him for as long as I can remember.

Rob Moran (Unbroken)

SPB: Have you ever heard your band covered by somebody else? What did you think?

Rob: I've heard a few covers over the years, some live and some recorded and it is always humbling. Of all the ones I've heard, Planes Mistaken For Stars was one that really nailed it. I could feel the angst and energy of the recording and was really into their take of it. I also enjoyed Panic's cover as well.

Dave Castillo (White Widows Pact)

SPB: How do you find new music?

Dave: Call me old fashioned but usually I find out about new music through my friends. A lot of them are a part of music in one way or another so I get the scoop on a ton of great stuff. It's also part of my job to find great new bands to book at Saint Vitus, and people know that, so a lot sort of comes to me that way. 

Joey Cape (Lagwagon, solo)

SPB: is the biggest improvement you’ve made to your touring lifestyle over the years? Is there an area of comfort or economy where you’d drastically changed your approach?

Joey: Surrounding myself with good people.  People who enjoy this life. They need to be happy, patient, and comfortable with constant change and unpredictable situations. A sense of humor is the first step. Also teeth brushing and deodorant can be nice.
