3?aK Episode 31: Michael Todd (Coheed & Cambria)

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 bassist Michael Todd of prog rockers Coheed & Cambria.

3?aK Episode 31: Michael Todd (Coheed & Cambria)

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 it’s inevitable. I think people are gonna understand the genius of what I’ve done 20, 37 years ago. I’ve still got the tights in the closet, ready to throw ‘em back on.

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

Um, yes, it’s actually, I’ve got all the hair lasered off my face and I just roll around in dirt all day long, but it photographs very well.

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

Um, watching myself in old videos and crying.

Go to Episode 32.
