Seaweed doesn't have a site at the moment, but we will keep you posted as to when he does!

1. There seems to be some confusion as to whether you are a member of Electra-Kill or not, can you clear that up please?

Certainly. I was offered to play with EK and took the offer. I moved to ohio but realized I had many loose ends that needed to be settled back home, so I moved back home.

2. Last year you recorded a song under the name "NeedleHole", which had a KMFDM/Nine Inch Nails kinda feel to it, do you plan on recording an album full of similar material?

I do, I've actually finished writing the record, now I need some studio time to work it all out.

3. What is in your CD player right now?

NIN - with teeth

4. While you were a member of Frankenstein Drag Queens did Wesley Willis ever join the band on stage for a song?

No. we went to a show of his in cleveland and met him, got pics made with an all that. then we gave him a shirt & he wore it during his set, it was really funny.

5. Which musicians influences you to pick up the bass?

The beatles & les claypool more than anyone.

6. Your style has been compared to Twiggy Ramirez in the past, both Marilyn Manson & Frankenstein Drag Queens started around the same time.. do you see the comparison as a good thing?

I can certainly see the comparisons. it's never a bad thing when u look like someone famous. it can be annoying at times, but flattering all the same.

7. What are your top 5 favorite movies?

Tough question. if i only pick five I feel like I'm betraying the I don't know, off the top of my head i would have to say: the godfather, young guns, braveheart, TCM, & anything by the coen brothers.

8. Wednesday 13 once said in an interview “Seaweed was in a band called Body Lice who played African American festivals...however they were not always a welcome at the events.”.. what exactly was Body Lice about?

Body lice was the first band i played in. we actually only played one African American festival & it was more of a talent show than anything. we were invited to play, only after did the shit hit the times.

9. If you could eliminate one band and their discography from existence, whom would you delete?

Pearl Jam

10. After you left Graveyard Boulevard, the rest of the band said you are always welcome back.. do you ever see yourself returning?

I had always planned on going back & would love to get back in with something I helped create. unfortunately, people tend to believe what they hear or read instead of coming to the source.

11. Who was more important to Glam Rock, David Bowie or Marc Borlan?

I prefer marc bolan. bowie was no doubt huge for glam, but I honestly think marc bolan was a better song writer...but thats just me.

12. Which were your personal favorite Frankenstein Drag Queens songs to play live?

There were many. wednesday has a talent for writing really catchy songs, sing-a-longs if u will....i love to say fuck for instance, anything that got the crowd involved was a blast to play.

13. Thanks Seaweed, is there anything you’d like to add?

Sure, for anyone who feels like they have something to say to me, bring it on. if not, keep your goddamn mouth shut. I'm getting to old for this he said/she said bullcrap. besides that, I wish everyone in the boulevard & those involved nothing but the best.
