3?aK Episode 40: John Falls (Egypt Central)

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 John Falls of Egypt Central.

3?aK Episode 40: John Falls (Egypt Central)

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 we’re already in the middle of a hair metal renaissance. I think that all they did was that they took the mullet from the ‘80s and the girls’ pants, and they just spun the mullet around backwards and made it long in the front and short in the back. Broke back out the same studded belts. Emo is the hair metal renaissance.

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

I don’t know, man. Me and Michael Jackson went together and got our implants done at the same time, so it stays this way. But if you had to shave it every day, I don’t really know. You should probably ask your hairdresser.

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

Eatin' nachos and watchin' Oprah.
