SO,WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND WHAT GOT YOU INTO PLAYING GUITAR? lori-i'm from chicago,bhang revival was a band i was in from 85-92,we had 3 7" releases and toured the west coast twice on self-booked tours. the last tour wasin 91,and was the deciding factor to move to san fran and start ACID KING.
lori- as far as getting into playing music,my ex Eric B(LIFE SENTENCE) helped me out,he showed me the major and minor chords and then i jumped right in and started a band called the "GROSS NATIONAL PRODUCT" we barely knew how to play,but fuck it we did shows and got into the scene. i really just wanted to be involved and contributing to what was goin on around me.
WHAT BANDS AT THE TIME WERE INFLUENCIAL TO YOU? WHAT WERE YOU LISTENING TO? lori-back in the day it was Trouble,Melvins,Screaming Trees,Sylvia Juncosa,and most SUB-POP stuff.
YEA,SUB-POP WAS KILLIN IT BACK THEN,AND THE MELVINS AND TROUBLE WERE KEEPIN THE "SABBATH" APPRECIATION SOCIETY ALIVE. WHAT DO YOU PLAY OUT OF? HOW BOUT YER GUITARS? lori-a jcm 800,100 watt head (marshall) and two 4 by 12 marshall cabinets. as far as guitars go i have a 1973 gibson les paul and a 1973 melody maker. i've had the melody maker since 84 and the les paul since 94.
BRAND LOYALTY IS BIG WITH BIKERS,I SEE YOU PLAY WITH AMERICAN BRANDS,IS THIS IMPORTANT TO YOU? lori-this set-up is what sounds good to me. i'm loyal to what i like and sounds good!!
EARLY ACID KING ALBUM.

Don Van Vliet, the man known around the world as Captain Beefheart, died Friday (December 17), He was 69.
The cause of Van Vliet's death was not immediately known, though several outlets were reporting it was due to complications from multiple sclerosis, which he had battled since the 1990s.
Van Vliet was an accomplished avant-garde musician and visual artist, who along with a constantly rotating crew of fellow oddballs — his handpicked "Magic Band" — bent the rules, melded genres and thoroughly weirded out much of mainstream America for nearly four decades.'
