3?aK Episode 32: Pepper Keenan (Down, Corrosion of Conformity)

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 guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan of Corrosion of Conformity and metal supergroup Down.

I didn’t know it ever left.

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

Uh, that’s funny. The secret to… It’s not a real beard. It’s a stubble makeup.

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

Vocal lockdown.
