3?aK Episode 22: Matt Pike (High on Fire, Sleep)

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 High on Fire frontman Matt Pike.

3?aK Episode 22: Matt Pike (High on Fire, Sleep)

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 and possibly even a tapping renaissance. Definitely I’m bringing my perm back out and the bandanas around my legs still means I have drugs.

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

(laughs) If I did that I’d have to kill you.

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

(laughs) Smoking crack. Fucking hookers.

Go to Episode 23.
