If your house were on fire, heaven forbid, what's the one item contained within that you would try to take with you? (People and pets not included.)
All my guitars, but if I could only grab one, it would be my Telecaster.
What's the one clothing/fashion item you can't live without?
Jeans, T-shirts, sneakers and Ray-Ban sunglasses -- pretty much what I wear all the time.
What's your favourite knick-knack and why?
My best friends, "Winnipeg" John Scoles and James Culleton (a.k.a. Knick Knackerson), and I drove down to Austin, Texas one weekend. At the first truck stop, John found a little stained glass knick-knack that read "Faith Can Work Miracles." We bought it and hung it in the van and I bring it with me everywhere I travel. I am not saying I am religious, but I do believe that if you have faith in what you are doing, miracles can happen. It has become John's and my slogan and the slogan for the (Times Changed) High and Lonesome Club.
What's the oldest thing you own?
A 1938 Rickenbacker seven-string lap steel guitar
Describe your most beloved piece of furniture.
My bed. I spend a lot of time in hotels, so to be able to sleep in my own bed with my wife, Alice, beside me is heaven. I like to sleep and... well, you know.
Is there an edible item we'll always find in your pantry or fridge?
Cheese and crackers.
