Favorite song?

DV: Anything off Guns 'n' Roses' "Appetite for Destruction"?Gun 'n' Roses was the only band to capture the sound and swagger of Aerosmith and The Stones at their peak.

Best concert you've ever seen?

DV: I have a blast everytime I catch Racer-X (Prof. Aaron Kitch and Prof. Vin Shende) in Portland. You haven't lived until you've heard their version of Falco's "Rock me Amadeus."

If you could go back in time and see any concert, what would you see?

Jimi Hendrix at the Montery Pop Festival. Led Zeppelin's 1969 tour.

Guilty listening pleaure?

DV: I have a decadent Ashlee Simpson habit that I try to keep under wraps. She makes me want to La La.

What would you name your band?

DV: The Strong Persuaders, from the Robert Cray album.

Best driving song?

DV: Allman Brothers, "Southbound."

If you were the dictator of a small country, what would be your national anthem?

Sammy Hagar's "I Can't Drive 55"?because my country wouldn't have a speed limit of 55.
