3?aK Episode 38: Eric Gorfain (The Section Quartet)

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 Eric Gorfain of the Section Quartet.

3?aK Episode 38: Eric Gorfain (The Section Quartet)

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

Absolutely, dude. It’s right around the corner, but it’s gonna be played on violins instead of Stratocasters. That was half him and half me. Sorry.

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

Uh, um, uh, Hollywood makeup artists.

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

Oh man. Well, I kind of got buried in the Spandex fallout of ’89. So I kind of lost my shirt there, so to speak. But I’ve been tryin’ to claw my way back up and still makin’ music and still makin’ records and practicin’ my ballet steps.

Go to Episode 39.
