3?aK Episode 23: Joe Principe (Rise Against)

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 Joe Principe of punk rockers Rise Against.

3?aK Episode 23: Joe Principe (Rise Against)

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

Um, I’m not sure. I thought it was making a comeback a couple years ago but it never really got off the ground. There were bands popping up in Chicago that were kinda doing that, but um, I guess everything kinda comes back around eventually, so we’ll see. It’s probably inevitable.

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

I think the key to that is to use an electric shaver with no guard.

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

Just playin’ music.

Go to Episode 24.
