30 Seconds With Keith Moody

Categories: Inquiring Minds

Rising alternative-country superstar Keith Moody has a voice like a summer rainstorm, capable of sweeping all your love away. We withstood the storm for 30 seconds to see what we could glean from the man.

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

Keith Moody: "Barbie Girl" by Aqua... I can't think of one redeeming quality for that song, not one.

RO: What is the best lyric in the world?

KM: "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make"

-- "The End," the Beatles

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

KM: Calmly make note of where they are, finish the tune, put down my guitar and go after them like a crazed beast. I still have an "Alabama Redneck" streak.

RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?

KM: I guess let's warp the Beatles, Elvis, the Stones (in their prime), Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Otis Redding and the current Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and put on a music festival on the moon. I'll open the show, obviously.

I'm pretty sure the moon could hold that kind of crowd. We can build a huge bubble full of oxygen around it. I mean we might as well with all the money that would have spent by then anyway.

RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?

KM: By a whole bunch of guitars and maybe a car... maybe. I mean that car is more guitar money.

RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?

KM: A Dr Pepper.

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

KM: Tom Petty and it would be everything that is right with American rock and roll.

RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the giant statue future generations erect in your honor?

KM: He never gave up and never took no for an answer.

Keith Moody plays 8 p.m. tonight at the Mink, 3718 Main (front bar).
