30 Seconds With Black Congress' Dann Miller

We sat down with Dann Miller, the bassist of Black Congress, to see what we could learn about him in 30 seconds. And here we go!

Rocks Off: What is the worst song in the world?

Dann Miller: The first that come to mind are "Old Time Rock and Roll" by Bob Seger and "The Logical Song" by Supertramp. They're both awful and don't have any kind of redeeming humorous qualities.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

DM: I could try to answer with something cooler, but in reality I always get pumped when Bon Jovi says. "I've seen a million faces, and I've rocked them all."

RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you. What do you do?

DM: I would say either "You mad" or "Calmer than you are."

RO: Without worrying about time, space, or physical laws, what would be the ultimate gig?

DM: I'd say one of the best would be playing bass in Van Halen in 1978. You get to open for Black Sabbath and you only have to play like five notes.

RO: What will you buy with your first million dollars?

DM: A lot of rational but awesome things that would be too boring to list right now. Instruments. Vacations. Dining. The Point Break president masks. Those paintings of the masked shirtless dudes from The Royal Tenenbaums. Perfectly rational things.

RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?

DM: A nice frosty can of Diet Coke.

RO: If you could canonize another musician as a saint, who would it be and what would they be the patron saint of?

DM: I would make David Lee Roth and Phil Anselmo the patron saints of Fantastic Stage Banter.

Black Congress plays the re-opening of the newly-renovated Fitzgerald's tonight with The Drums, Young Friends, Weird Party, Leg Sweeper and Cosmic Sound. Free show for 21 and up.
