Five Questions with Butch Walker
- Who do you think is an important musician that most people have never heard of before?
Butch Walker: Is this the part where I'm supposed to say me? Kidding. I think it's probably someone I don't even know of.
- If you had access to any record in the world, what would you listen to right now?
BW: I do have access to it. It's in the next room, as I type. It's probably my rare copy of The Clash (Live At Shea Stadium) given to me by Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols as a gift. I asked him if he really wanted to give that away and he said, "never been much of a fan...."
- Which album or artist do you most associate with your childhood?
BW: The Monkees. Isn't it obvious?
- We hope people are ______________ when they listen to our music.
- We were thinking about ______________ when we wrote music for the new album.
