3?aK Episode 24: Johnny Christ (Avenged Sevenfold)

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 Johnny Christ of Avenged Sevenfold.

3?aK Episode 24: Johnny Christ (Avenged Sevenfold)

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

I think there’s definitely people out there in LA that still love that music and still have a lot of fun with it. I don’t know if it can make a complete comeback. It’s not something I need to see, but definitely a possibility.

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

(laughs) Maintaining it. That’s actually a really tough one because you have to get out the trimmer and then the shoe polish. It’s a little tough. I can’t really unleash that secret.

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

I don’t know. (laughs) I’ve just been doing my thing.

Go to Episode 25.
