Tell us a little funny fact or anecdote about the other bandmembers that they don't want us to know but for which they won't kill you for telling us =D

With Brian being the main writer do you get a chance to contribute songs or lyrics to songs?

What's the view like from the back of a GLA show?

What's your favourite joke?

2 Questions:

1. I remember reading somewhere you used to listen to hip hop growing up and mentioned Nas.

Do you still listen to hip hop these days? Who are your favourite artists?

2. Was there any specific song or band that made you want to drum?

andy just made me think of a question. do you ever think you would lay down some beats for a hip-hop artist? in a good way, not like travis barker, who a good drummer, seems like could be a prick.

I feel like I've asked this before, but never gotten an answer:

What do you and Brian call Alex R. and Alex L. to distinguish them or get their attention?

Repeat question! I posted this one for the Brian interview but it didn't get asked, so heres hoping it's second time lucky:

I'd love to do what you guys do but just don't feel i have the time outside of work to practice and get my playing and singing up to a standard I'm happy with. It feels like I need to work to support myself but at the same time that work is holding me back from doing what i really wanna be doing. How did you guys balance supporting yourself financially and creating music? With enough money put aside do you think it's best to just pack in the job and focus on the music? Basically, how do I break out of the 9 - 5?!

Do you have any interest in proper football (soccer)? Are you watching the World Cup?

Who would you say is the most intelligent member of TGA?

And who's the worst dancer?

Will you be playing Belfast, or at least Dublin in the near future?

question: You've said that the Fat Veggie Benny ($6.25) at Paulies Pizza Cafe was named after you, but they do Veggie Bennys elsewhere in the States. Surely the 'fat' bit can't be because of you?

Why "The Gaslight Anthem"? Where does that name come from and why did you choose it?

If anyone knows the answer, please say it Smile

some last minute questions that came to mind today, hope is not too late to ask them:

How does the songwriting process of The Gaslight Anthem work?

Old White Lincoln, The '59 Sound and Great Expectations were all released as 7". Can we expect something similar for the singles of American Slang?

Lots of bands have released DVDs of their tours and shows. Do you think there will be a Gaslight DVD any time soon? If not, is it something you guys would like to do sometime down the road?

I've seen you playing Dark Horse, DW, and Pearl sets. I'm wondering, which is your favorite and why?

Also, how does TGA go about writing their songs. The tunes, lyrics, and especially drum beats leave me in awe. Can you share how the band starts writing a song, finishes it off, and everything in between?
