1) What would possess you to join forces with the Scumdogs of the Universe for the 2014 GWAR-B-Q?
DAVE: We’ve really wanted to play the GWAR-B-Q for a while now. There’s beer, BBQ, heavy metal and a water park, who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Well I guess people who don’t like fun.
2) What can people expect from your set?
DAVE: People can expect us to be pissed and play fast. Also there will probably be harmonized guitar solos.
3) They say the GWAR-B-Q is the “wildest party anywhere”… What are you looking forward to the most about it?
DAVE: I’m looking forward to partying with a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in awhile and checking out a bunch of killer bands. I’ve never thought I’d get the chance to play with Body Count so I’m pretty stoked for that.
4) Now that the GWAR-B-Q will also serve as a tribute to Dave Brockie and Oderus Urungus, do you have any personal reflections on the man and/or the myth and how that shapes your involvement with the event this year?
DAVE: We’ve played one show with Gwar at a festival in Texas and we hung out briefly. Dave struck me as a really nice and cool dude. As a frontman he was outstanding and was funny as fuck. I’m very sad to hear of his passing but glad that we have the honor of playing at this tribute to him.
5) As a fan, do you have a favorite GWAR story? How have the Scumdogs affected your life… go!
DAVE: My favorite GWAR story is actually from that gig we played with them in Texas. We had all access so I got to hang out side stage while they played and see the whole show and production from a behind the scenes point of view. I’ve seen GWAR 3 or 4 times prior to that and they always kill but it was a really cool feeling to watch the show from a different angle.
