Interview with Numb
May 1st, 2004


What made you guys decide on the name “Numb”? Were there any other choices?

Tony: No, there weren’t any other choices and it was seriously the first thing that came to mind.

Who inspired you guys? Like musical influences?

Paul: Do you mean musically? Gotta get it together bro, come on dude.
Alex: I don’t know. What do you guys have to say?
Paul: Name your bands and I will name forth my bands “this is going to take a second so...” One of my favorite bands would have to be the band Tool. Then there’s the band Pantera. There’s my spiritual rock, which is Tool of course. Then I have my fuck you, oh, kill you in the face Pantera metal rock. But then in the beginning before all this crazy rock I was inspired by the band Mötley Crüe. Tell me about it, it was Satanism, but I love it. I believe in God and Satanism is not my thing. But I do twirl the drumsticks quite madly. Like my man Tommy Lee of course
Alex: The stuff that inspires me really, I really don’t play like, so like I guess myself. I don’t know. I mean I like a shit load of other bands, but I don’t play like them, I mean I look up to them and shit but I just want to be my own person with the music.
Tony: And I personally couldn’t care less about the music im in it for the chicks. But the obvious is the Deftones, and I also influenced by Radiohead as well.
Rob: Van Halen of course. Bon Jovi

What is your goal with Numb, what do you want to achieve?

Alex: Anything and everything Possible.
Paul: Um sex, a lot of booze for free, and we definitely want to score a record deal with a major major label and too keep writing badass music with crazy ass halftimes.
Tony: And score with progressively hotter and hotter chicks. Just kidding. Put in there that im gay.

How long have you guys been together?

Paul: Well I’ve been gay for a couple years. I had sex with Rob twice this past week. So we have been together for about 4 days. Tony and I, we’ve had gay butt sex for the past 10 years. So pretty long term with him. *but you know that gays hold no meaning in the relationship its all about the poo* The only thing I can do is wink at people then I fart. What the hell. What the fuck is wrong with me.
Tony: We’ve been together since June 8th of 2002, but Alex and Paul have joined the band in the past six to eight weeks.
Paul: Oh so im not gay then?

When and how did you all meet?

Rob: I met Paul at school. I met Tony in a bar long time ago in his old band. Then Alex he came to all of our shows.

What was it like your first time up on stage? Were you nervous?

Rob: Yeah I was a little nervous
Alex: Yeah I was fucking nervous as hell. I was nervous the whole time.
Tony: I was only nervous before I got on stage and then once I got on I wasn’t.
Paul: Honestly I really never haven’t got nervous.

What is your favorite song to perform?

Alex: Halo
Rob: Halo for me too
Paul: The one song where you strum the guitar chords *Makes guitar noise*. Then there’s Tony*makes weird noises*. Then im like look everyone I can twirl my sticks. Then there’s Alex on the chorus*makes bass noises*
Alex: What song is that.
Tony: It’s called the Fuck you, Yankee Blue jeans. Yeah I like playing the new song because we can pretend like were hardcore kids. But put down that we are definitely alternative rock.
Paul: Woohoo Halo.

What is your most embarrassing moment onstage?

Paul: Well im embarrassed every night.
Tony: Sometimes when I scream that hard, I fart uncontrollably. Just Kidding, don’t put that, then ill never get chicks.
Rob: I wiped out at Plato’s pizza. I fell hard, pulled my stack over.
Tony: I totally ninja kicked Alex in the back of the knee.
Alex: Yeah, he almost broke my leg. Probably the most embarrassing thing that happened to me was when my bass flew. I went to go for the massive spin and the strap broke. I almost busted some fans in the head. That really wasn’t embarrassing it was sort of hilarious.

When you guys aren’t playing any shows, what do you like to do in your free time?

Paul: Totally hang out. We go to restaurants.
Tony: I like to color code my sock and underwear drawer. I double-check the spacing between all my furniture and the walls because I have a really fucking sad affliction called Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I turn off my light switches exactly fourteen times and then I reface everything in my medicine cabinet. Then I punch myself in the face and call myself an ass and then I cry myself to sleep like the little pussy I am.
Rob: I hang cinder blocks from my nipple rings. Honestly I hang out with my daughter.
Tony: and then I hang out with his girlfriend.
Paul: I like to practice. Actually I hate practice but I got to do it.
Tony:(singing) Separaaaate
Alex: I don’t really have any spare time.

Current mood: amused
