3?aK Episode 42: Joe Buck (Hank III, Assjack)

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 Joe Buck of Hank III and Assjack.

3?aK Episode 42: Joe Buck (Hank III, Assjack)

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

Well you know, it was such a viable form of music that of course, it’s like every great form of music, like blues.

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

Now that’s a tricky one. Okay, now I know this sounds stupid. I’m lettin’ out some of my secrets. You gotta get upside down. I do it by bending over – I use a chair – I bend over the back of the chair, ‘kay? Then I have my girlfriend come in. (laughs) Go on to the next one, I’ll come back to it.

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

(laughs) I got my house gig down at the Roxy from three to five. On Mondays. It’s a great time. Come on down. Cocktails are half price.

Go to Episode 43.
