Last week I got to appear on a really interesting podcast hosted by one of my favorite authors- Neil Strauss. He is the author of The Dirt– which is the biography of Motley Crue. Neil’s show is like a roundtable discussion with a few different people – and we all drank some booze and ate some food and talked about some intense shit. I don’t really know how else to describe it!
The other people on the show were all different musicians. It was Todd Fink from The Faint, Orenda Fink from Azure Ray and a billion other bands (also Todd’s wife), and Tom Holkenborg from Junkie XL. I was honored to be part of the group! Reading The Dirt really changed my life, and The Faint was one of my favorite bands in my early 20’s.
Orenda had no idea who I was, and Todd was fully aware of who I was. It was a bit of an awkward moment when that was admitted on the show. I know that there are a lot of dudes out there who jerk off to me and don’t tell their ladies about it (which is unfortunate but I am not here to judge the way people have their relationships) but I’m usually not in front of them when the lady finds out, and I am usually not a huge fan of the culprit’s band. I felt bad for Orenda- but really flattered that Todd liked my porn! I was a little torn here.
So, I tried to smooth all this awkwardness over by flirting with Orienda as much as possible. She is extremely beautiful, and talented- and we actually have a few similar physical traits so it’s obvious that her husband has awesome taste in women. I told her I would have sex with her when her man goes away on tour, and then we can all be even. I think she thought I was joking but I wasn’t!!
In any case, it was a really interesting night to say the least.
