2. What country (other than the US) would you most like to visit? 

Nepal/Tibet.

 

3. What musician, composer or pop icon would you most like to be stranded with on a desert island? Why? 

I would not want to be stranded on a desert island with any of my music heroes, as they would most likely kill me and eat me. My fantasy session at my jam room, however, would have to be Keith Richards & Neil Young- guitars, Bob Dylan-piano, and Sam Shepard-drums. I think we would all find something to play.

 

4. What’s your favorite city or venue to play a gig at?

 I liked playing at the bars in Chicago. Vilar PAC in Beaver Creek Co. It had cool wood everywhere. We got to ski. My favorite gig was at Prentiss Brown Auditorium in Los Gatos, Ca in 2000, a benefit for a high school friend of mine, which included my friends from the last 30 years.

5.  What’s the last song you downloaded to your iPod? 

Jack White’s DEAD WEATHER album.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET is the new musical inspired by the night an auspicious twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together. The place was Sun Records’ storefront studio in Memphis. The man who made it happen was Sam Phillips, the “Father of Rock and Roll,” who discovered them all. The four legends-to-be united for the only time in their careers for an impromptu recording that has come to be known as one of the greatest rock jam sessions of all time.
 
MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET opens Sunday, April 11 at the Nederlander Theatre (208 West 41st Street).
 
This musical, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, is not affiliated with, or authorized by, Sun Records, Sam Phillips, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins or any of their successors in interest and no such affiliation or authorization should be inferred.
