1). What is the most exotic/extraordinary place you have ever performed at?
Well it's not that exotic, but it is a bit extraordinary. I use to play regular gigs at a place called Sudsey Malone's which was a laundromat that served alcohol.
Now Heather was never a performer, but she is an artist and sang the national anthem in front of the Contemporary Art Center from cue cards as a performance art piece. Performance art has never really been exposed in Cincinnati, Ohio.

2). When you are 70 – how do you see your life?

We really don't think that far ahead in time due to what is going on with the earth.

3). If you could talk to any of the rock-stars, dead or alive, whom would you talk to and what would you ask?
Heather would like to speak with Yoko Ono. She would ask her why she likes trees so much.
As for me I would love to talk to John Lennon and ask him how in the hell he came up with all those great songs.

4). What countries and cities would you like to visit the most during the tour?
We would love to go to Berlin, Tokyo, Toronto, India and maybe Kenya.

5). Which famous band/artist you would be glad to share the stage with?
Heather would love to be on stage with Exene Cernenka or maybe The Pretenders.
I would love to share the stage with a Beatle. That would have to be Sir Paul McCartney.
