Interviews | Feb 24th, 2005

What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing it?
Chris: I play drums and I have been bangin’ on them (for better or worse) since I was 13 so seven years.

Dave: I play guitar and sing, been playin’ guitar for about the same amount of time, since 12 so about 7 years, and singing, well would you call it singing…more like squawking since I was really young, then there is Adam and Clarke, we have them locked in the trailer right now so we can have the interview all to ourselves.

How did Count The Stars form?
Chris: Count the Stars formed after the break up of our old band from high school, we had decided we wanted to do music for life and wanted to hit the road, so I began writing new songs and Adam joined (he had been a long time friend from another local band that had at the time just recently split up) We all got together and rehearsed picked the name..and bam! on the road we went.

Is there anyone punker than Mr. T?
Dave: not really…ummm…Chris,
Chris: Jean Claude Van Damme in bloodsport…deaf touch!! thats punk.

If you had a long distant cousin who was super hot, would you do her?
Dave: Been there already done that.

Chris: Whoa, you learn something new about you best friends everyday.

Dave: Just kidding.

What comedians do you like?
Chris: Adam Manning

Dave: He is up and coming you may not know him yet.

What do you do for fun when on tour and not playing a show?
Dave: Not sure, when was the last time we didn’t have a show

Chris: We spend most of our days off now driving to the next destination, but back in the day when we had a little more time on our hands we drive around and watch Dave round around naked or yell “slut” at the local college girls.

Dave: That rules, we sound like such scumbags right now.

What is the worst song ever? (Example: Leonard Nimoy: “Ballad of Bilbo Baggins”)
Dave: Cher, do you believe in love….enough said.

What cartoon character do you relate to the most?
Chris: Leisure Suit Larry, look into it.

How does it feel to be on Victory Records? Do you think you’re getting more exposure?
Chris: yeah we love them, they are awesome, we definitely are reaching new heights.

Dave: They have been great, everyone is so helpful and we get the personal attention that a major would not have given us. I mean look at how well TBS is doing, they really got their shit together.

Anything else to plug, comment on, etc.?
Chris: Dave’s ass, oh and the new album “NEVER BE TAKEN ALIVE” go and buy it…please, just do it, for Dave, he is dying…please help us.
