Andrew: So whats the plan with the band for 2014 then?
Jimmy: Like I said we're coming to Australia in January and then hopefully after the record comes out in April doing as much touring as possible, on the road and really promote it hard. We're really looking forward to that and probably going into the studio pretty soon too.
Andrew: And I see Down is coming here for Soundwave next year as well, will you be making the trek for that too?
Jimmy: Yeah man 4 flights!
Andrew: That's a long trek to make 2 trips in one year! How do you think that will go?
Jimmy: It will be awesome dude, I'm looking forward to it. Just get a good book you know? The flight aint nothing man to get over there to jam like with Sonishphere I've never played that but I heard it's pretty cool.
Andrew: Which type of shows do you prefer, the festivals or the club shows?
Jimmy: Like 200 capacity.
Andrew: Is that because it's more conducive to your kind of music or do you just like the vibe?
Jimmy: I just like it when it's shit packed dude and fucking nobody can move anywhere. And yeah the vibes better but both are killer.
Andrew: How does it feel to be part of 3 great bands like Crowbar, Down and Eyehategod, it must feel great to be part of all that?
Jimmy: Yeah it really does man, it feels great! All those people in those bands we just talked about to me are really talented and fun to jam with, I couldn't ask for better bands to be involved with.
Andrew: If you could be a fly on the wall for the recording of any classic album in history what would it be?
Jimmy: Black Sabbath's first record.
Andrew: Why that album?
Jimmy: Just because it's a great record and the vibe and the way it sounds. It's like an obvious choice (but also) any Skynrd record would be amazing to see.
Andrew: And for you, what is the meaning of life?
Jimmy: Riff. All about the riff bro! The riff is what makes the sun shine haha!
Andrew: I will agree with that, it's all about the riff.
Jimmy: Totally man, it's what makes you feel good.
Andrew: Well we are looking forward to seeing you guys in January, especially in Perth. I think it's going to be an awesome tour so thanks again for talking to us, it's much appreciated!
Jimmy: Thank you bro and I really appreciate it too!
