PZO: What do you take pride in the most?
Dave: I would say the fact that my band actually just got a gold record, and Im
actually really proud of that. Im proud that my band can continue. Weve been
on the road for 12 and a half months, Ive only been home 2 and a half weeks, and
its still as much fun as we left. Everyones actually has grown a lot tighter
as friends, and musicians. Were writing new songs; actually really strong songs,
like everyones grown together and I have a lot of pride in that. Im actually
really proud of my band.

cant go on the road without?

to that CD all the time.
PZO: Where do you always
look forward to play at?
Dave: I look forward to playing in L.A. just because its home. Its kind of
like the chance to see friends and family. At the same token it evokes the reason I
dont like playing L.A. <Laughs> Everyone and their uncle wants to get
into the show, and Hey, can you get me on the guest list.

clean it up. My socks get wet, I fear that every morning. I put my shoes on when I

puppet. Its a cartoon in Europe. <Laughs> Its like this cat,
