3?aK Episode 19: Mike “Gunface” McKenzie (The Red Chord)

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 Mike "Gunface" McKenzie of the Red Chord.

3?aK Episode 19: Mike “Gunface” McKenzie (The Red Chord)

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

Yeah man, I'm holding my breath for the resurgence of Barbie doll boy music.

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

The key is to have laser hair removal and just paint it on with eye shadow. I'm trying to become a full-on woman.

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

Brushing my hair and hanging out at the local high schools. Trying to meet the right girl. I met this 17-year-old last week, daddy says she's too young (her dad's my age: 46) but she's old enough for me!
