How do you even gauge what a fan favorite is? Why don't you just take Blindfolds Aside off the setlist? Surely fans would be understanding.
I suggested removing it from the set once to an audience in Germany. They weren't very receptive of the idea.
Another song you would knock off the set list for good?
Whatever song you like the most.
If Blindfolds Aside wasn't such a fan favorite, would you ever play it at shows?
Can I name my daughter Rodalina after you?
I don't care, go nuts. It's your fuckin life.
Hey Rody, I feel kinda rude asking this but are you going to answer those questions? Assignment has to be in Thursday. If not it's totally cool, can look through other interviews you've done.
Sorry man, don't feel rude. I will answer them, my bad about the delay.
Hey Rod, dude I am actually making a vocal cover of "Mist" of PTH, I can't handle very well the faster than you spell all the lyrics hahaha, some advice or something for that? Thank you a lot!
I would love to help you out, but I don't really understand the question. If you could clarify, I would be more than happy to shed some light on how it's done... Whatever 'it' is.
thanks! any breathing techniques or warmups you can recommend?
Run scales while buzzing your lips or rolling your tongue. Start low, warm that up for a while then move onto higher stuff. Breathing techniques are a little too difficult to explain via askfm.
Advice for starting out singers?
Sing all the time.
Nightman or Dayman?
At the beginning of 'Dunsel', is that a synth playing?
It's a bass.
It says they should appear in your others box. I can add you as a friend if that would help.
Yea send me a request so I can get it in my messenger app.
Sent the questions through Facebook, name is Sam.
Where? I don't see them.
Thanks a lot man. Would it be better to ask you through here or somewhere else?
You can do it on here or on Facebook.
Is your mom also a swat Sargent?
How do you think they met?
Hey Rody could I ask you some questions for my college assignment? It's about what makes a band successful.
Go nuts. Though I'm not sure I really qualify to answer the questions.
Any news on an instrumental version of Volition?
Pretty sure it's not happening.
Mastodon already put that Shakespeare quote in 'The Ruiner' though before you did.
It's a pretty popular quote.
Sick of the dad questions?
I don't want to fight your dad.
There's an interview where you say 'PETA are always coming after my Dad, so fuck off PETA'. What is your dad doing to animals? :O
I'm not sure if it was my father directly, but it had something to do with tasering pigs that were all jacked up on cocaine.
If your dads such a badass how did you grow up to be such a pussy girly singer? (This is joke I love your singing)
I know you're joking, but it's true enough.
I know your first name is James so where did the name Rody come from ?
It's my middle name and my grandmother's maiden name.
What does your dad do for a living?
My dad is a retired swat sergeant and bomb squad sergeant.
Did your dad use jiu jitsu as an excuse to twist the shit out of your arm (gakun) also?
I don't know what this means.
