3?aK Episode 34: Neil Primrose (Travis)

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 drummer Neil Primrose of brit-poppers Travis.

3?aK Episode 34: Neil Primrose (Travis)

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 is right around the corner. Here in South America there’s some crazy haircuts and wrestling masks, so there’s no reason why, um, permed, flammable hair can’t make a comeback

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

Um, hmm. Two bottles of Jack Daniel’s a day, 15 packets of Twinkies and as much sex, drugs and rock-n-roll as I can get.

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

Umm, drinking my way around the world.

Go to Episode 35.
