3?aK Episode 12: Chris Spencer (Unsane)

Back in 2007, when I was the music writer for College Times, Kip Winger blew me off for an interview because he was on “vocal lockdown.” I didn’t want to see the questions I’d prepared go to waste, so for the next year, I asked everyone I interviewed if they’d be willing to get into character and answer the following “Three Questions as Kip.”

If you're new to 3?aK and want a more detailed history of how this project came to be, click here.

OK, now that you're up to speed, let's get on with the show. Playing the role of Kip Winger for this installment of 3?aK will be Unsane frontman Chris Spencer.

3?aK Episode 12: Chris Spencer (Unsane)

1. We've already seen disco and '80s synth pop make comebacks. Do you think a hair metal renaissance is right around the corner?

Oh my god. Definitely. There’s no question. It’s comin’ back, man. Look, I’m a beautiful man. I’ve got great hair, great teeth, you know. I’m not too old to keep rockin’. This shit’s comin’ right back, you know. You can tell. And I think I’m gonna be at the forefront of it, to tell you the truth. Me and Sebastian Bach.

2. Can you let our readers in on your secret to maintaining the perfect 5 o'clock shadow?

Ooh, god. A lot of grooming. A lot of hair products. I mean, you know, I use gel on my face, to be honest with you. I just get that perfect buzz, you know, I buzz it down. I don’t actually shave. I just buzz it. And then add some hair product so it looks a little bit thicker, you know.

3. What have you been up to for the last 15 years?

Uh, well, you know, lotta drugs, you know. I’ve had a major drug problem. I’ve been in and out of rehab I think about uhhh, sixteen, sev-, this is eighteen times. Um, you know, I’ve gone through five wives. It’s been just turmoil. You know, I’m a wreck, and actually, I don’t know if you can print this, but my life is in shambles and I’m waiting for, you know, this whole hair rock thing to come back because that’s when I’m gonna get my revenge on the world.
