What was your highlight of 2008?
Touring with Boris and Torche in North America. Great trip, great people, great shows. Couldn’t ask for more.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Got arrested on tour for possession of marijuana in Arizona, the state with the harshest laws on pot. Fucking ridiculous!
