1. What are you listening to right now?

I’m a big fan of this girl Lissie. She’s super-great. She’s from the United States but she has a U.K. record deal and she’s just going to blow up. She’s super, authentic and a really great singer, a really great songwriter. 

2. What's your favorite make-out album?

You know, back when I was living in Erie (Pennsylvania), I would buy all of the Kenny G records to make out to but I probably couldn’t do that now. I don’t think I could sit through a whole Kenny G song. 

3. Who is your soul sister?

My wife, Donna. She’s my soul mate. She’s really a badass. 

4. Name the coolest thing you can think of about Ohio.

My keyboard player Jerry Becker is from North Olmsted. I find that the people I connect with while I travel the world, most of them are from Ohio. It’s really interesting how that works. Obviously the people of Ohio are my kind of people. 

5. Name the worst thing you can think of about Ohio.

The Cleveland Browns because I’m a Steelers fan. 

6. What’s your favorite pig-out food?

You know, I suppose like a Chicken Parmesan sub would pretty much knock it out for me. And Ben & Jerry’s is always good.
