Eight Questions With Alfunction
There's not much to say about the Costa Mesa man/myth/legend that is Alfunction.that hasn't already been said, so I'll keep it at this. When he's not playing guitar in SiX, he's screen printing t-shirts, stickers and whatever else he can put ink on and currently he's the guitar tech for Maryland-based rockers Clutch. Oh, he's also got killer facial hair.
Alfunction's also my friend and I hadn't heard from him in a while. With the hectic world that is rock music, it's difficult to get him on the phone, so like the Y2K guy that I am, I emailed him. And now, for your reading pleasure, is the result of our techno-conversation.
I'm Batman... ok, no really, they call me Alfunction, guitarist, guitar tech, Costa Mesa native... it's all on wikipedia apparently.
Q:Where are you?
Q: Why are you wherever it is you are?
Q: Any good tour stories (by this, I mean on this tour)?
Q: Where's the hardest city to find vegetarian food?
Oh hell, I don't have to hunt for that anymore... it gets delivered every day. Although, when I had to track it down myself, I remember I had a hard time anywhere in Texas... you can find a 72 oz steak in a 7/11, but god forbid you want a burger withOUT the cow.
Q: Of all the guys on the bus, whose farts smell the worst?
Oh, that title goes to Chase, our fearless drum tech. but on a good day, I'll give him a run for his money... I honestly can't say I've smelled everyone's farts (thank god), but some days you just walk past the bunks and there's a unidentifiable cocktail of collective, morning, ass-stink that anyone would be both proud and horrified to claim.
Q: Have you met anyone from OC on this tour?
That'd be a negative, but we're only 1 week into this leg of the tour, so who knows? I don't think anyone but us music people leave OC do they?
