And now we present a boring interview with a big-time rock star: Scott Weiland of Velvet Revolver

GK:Did you ever go to Pizza D'Oro, the restaurant?

SW: Oh, hell yeah.

GK:All-you-can-eat lasagna and spaghetti?

SW: Yeah, yeah.

GK:What year did you graduate?

SW: 1986.

GK:Did you have a favorite teacher from Edison?

SW: Yeah, it would be Mr. Otie, my choir teacher. You know I was in the madrigal ensemble as well?

GK:No way.

[At this point Weiland goes into a long story about trying to quit the wrestling and football teams to focus on music, a decision of which his coaches did not approve. I enjoyed the story, but it was too long. And so let us close this piece with one of the most winning things I've ever heard a multimillionaire rock star say:]

SW:But what they said was, "You're going to wrestle." And I said, "Listen, I'm not going to. I'm going to concentrate on music. I'm in the madrigal ensemble, we have over 100 concerts a year, and I have my band, and I also have to get good grades."
