Let’s talk about music.
Music’s important to me, especially to get psyched up for skating and snowboarding.
How would you classify your musical tendencies?
Mostly rap and reggae (dance hall) on your average day. But if I’m going skating or snowboarding, I’ll throw on some snow-rock or old-school punk rock.
What’s the best concert you’ve ever seen?
Beastie Boys, Seattle, 1998.
What was the first album you ever bought?
Black Sabbath’s Heaven and Hell and Led Zeppelin’s In Through The Out Door in 1978.
What’s your favorite band no one’s heard of?
Watch it Burn, the sickest up-and-comers. They just finished the Warp Tour and get total props.
Do you listen to music while riding?
No, just to and from the mountain.
Have you ever been in a band?
No, but my friends all play guitar and bass, and I’m buying a drum set and setting up a room in my house to mess around in.
