30 Seconds With Miles Zuniga
Rocks Off interrogated Miles Zuniga, who just released his solo debut These Ghosts Have Bones, to see what we could find out about the Fastball singer/guitarist and Austin's own acolyte of the Church of John Coltrane 30 seconds.
Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?
Miles Zuniga: The worst song in the world is "Sex On Fire" by Kings of Leon. It's not a song, it's a Facebook update.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
MZ: Hmmm. That's a tough one. Maybe "Suzanne" by Leonard Cohen.
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?
MZ: Why are you asking this question? Are you in Kings of Leon?
RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?
MZ: I'm just going to assume you mean dream gig with dream band. John Lennon on rhythm guitar, Phil Lynott on bass and Keith Moon on the drums with yours truly on the other guitar. Venue? Tipitina's in New Orleans.
RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?
MZ: A case of 1945 Chateau Mouton-Rothschild Jeroboam.
RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?
MZ: Some aspirin.
RO: If you could canonize another musician, who would it be and of what would they be the patron saint?
MZ: Keith Richards. The patron saint of bad decisions.
RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the giant statute future generations erect in your honor?
MZ: He knew how to have a good time.
Miles Zuniga plays 7:30 p.m. tonight at McGonigel's Mucky Duck.
