How has social media affected the way you engage with your fans?
Tough question for me. I don’t have any social media. I guess it’s been good!
Favorite music-related meme/viral video this year—and why?
“Gangnam Style” was the shit! I don’t know what a meme is. I got on the Internet to check basketball scores.
What to you was one of the biggest losses this year in music?
[The Monkees'] Davy Jones was a big one for me. I’m such a huge fan of pop music from the ‘60s. I remember feeling very shocked about that one.
Was there a surprising sound or music trend that pricked up your ears?
A little more of the electronic side. it’s never something that interested me in the past, but I went to a Skrillex show and was kind of converted from there. I thought it was amazing, and I thought the positive reaction from the crowd was something you don’t get much nowadays.
How do you live like a high roller when you’re in Las Vegas?
I’m really big on the buffet. One time I saw a Criss Angel show and I was sorely disappointed for me – that was really expensive.
