30 Seconds With Roky Moon
Rocks Off sat down with front man of arguably the No. 1 act in Houston at the moment, Roky Moon of Roky Moon & BOLT to see what we could learn about the glam-rocker in 30 seconds.
Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?
Roky Moon: That "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" song. It represents a whole culture that I just despise. Cruzin' around, listening to Drowning Pool or Nickleback or some garbage, watching MMA and chugging Jäger bombs. We all know the type...ugh.
Note: this is the third time a musician has mentioned "Let the Bodies Hit the Floor" [Drowning Pool's "Bodies"] in this column as the worst song ever.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
RM: "It's not the side effects of the cocaine. I'm thinking that it must be love." - David Bowie, Station to Station
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you. What do you do?
RM: Return to sender.
RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what is the ultimate gig?
RM: Live at the Gates of Hell! I ride in on Cerberus and flames shoot out of all the instruments!
RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?
RM: If I had an extra million dollars to just buy something I would probably go around giving it to people that need it. I'm tired of seeing all the rich asses spending all this money. And there are people out there that could actually do something with it.
I fully understand that these people made their money and they can do anything they want with it, but if they are just blowing it maybe spend a measly $20,000 and start a program to help young musicians get on their feet. Then maybe give a chunk to single mothers that have to live off of barely any money growing up in Kingwood when I was little.
RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?
RM: Well is this my last dollar before I die? If I was still going to be alive I would get a taco and some kind of $.50 whistle. I'd enjoy my last taco and then I'd have something to fool with while I'm bored for my final days. If I was gonna die that same day I'd buy 2 tacos. Eat them. Nighty night...forever
RO: If you could canonize another musician, who would it be and of what would they be the patron saint?
RM: Randy Rhoads. Patron saint of guitar shredding!
Roky Moon & BOLT play Canned Acoustica II Thursday, March 3, at Warehouse Live with The Ton Tons, Come See My Dead Person, Southern Backtones, Finnegan, Lee Alexander, Young Girls, Poor Pilate and Erin Rodgers.
