30 Seconds With Dahvie Vanity of Blood on the Dance Floor
After taking a moment to mop the bodily fluid from our lap top, we fired off an email to Dahvie Vanity of the morbid electronica masters Blood on the Dance Floor to see what we could bleed out of him in 30 seconds.
Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?
Dahvie Vanity: My opinion on the worst song in the world is "I Want it That Way" by the Backstreet Boys. I'd rather stick my dick in a grinder than to listen to that crap.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
DV: The best lyric in the world would be "If you never try you'll never know" by Coldplay from "Speed of Sound."
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?
DV: Let my security handle it. Can't cry over spilled milk you just gotta rock and roll!
RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?
DV: I'd love to play on the moon. You get a stellar view of earth and a chance to do some wicked jumps.
RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?
DV: A home for us to create more music for our fans and a place to shelter our crew and continuing doing what we love the most and that is music.
RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?
DV: I would buy a pack of gum give it to a random person and say, "life truly is sweet."
RO: If you could canonize another musician who would it be, and of what would they be the patron saint?
DV: John Lennon for he was truly an angel and blessing to music.
RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the huge statue future generations erect in your honor?
DV: Love Conquers All.
Blood on the Dance Floor plays Fitzgerald's Friday November 18 with New Year's Day and Angelspit.
