James interviews Jeff Henson of Meganaut

Thanks to James for the interview!

Welcome to Kick Acts. Tell us a little about yourself and your band and were you can be found at on the web.

www.meganautmusic.com And I am Jeff Henson the frontman/founder of the

hard rock band.

Who are your musical heroes, influences & why?

QOTSA is a big one, 70’s hard rock.. and also guys like nilsson, nick lowe,

and the like for their killer melodies.

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in playing music? Any pitfalls they should avoid?

Make a great sounding record, buy a van and get your ass on the road. Pitfalls…?

Not getting on the road or taking it seriously.. until you

do, you have a very very tiny shot at anything

 Do you have a greatest gig story you’d like to share?

Any night we are playing music in front of fans is the greatest gig to us.

Some obviously better than others, but we just like to play.

On the same token as the above question. How about a “worse gig” ever story.

Lol probly, maybe the time the ATF and FBI people busted into the bar and

shut it down an hour before we went on.. that was fun

Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of boobs?

nope, i make music of all sorts and produce albums for other people… my

life is pretty much only music

 What do you think about the present music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

all i’ll say is that we are on a self proclaimed mission to bring some

balls and strong melodies back to straight forward rock n roll.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear… Like their hobbies or something like that…

hmmm, we are really a boring, nerdy bunch of guys that geek out about music

and sometimes video games and iphone apps… pretty much music runs every

part of all of our lives.

Hypothetical situation. You’re stranded on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the girls… Is it Ginger, Mary Ann or Mrs. Howell and why?

Ginger, I’ve had a thing for redheads… although mary ann would probly be

a lot less drama

Our last question  is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD”!

CALL YOUR RADIO STATION AND REQUEST BANDS LIKE MEGANAUT AND GO SEE LIVE

SHOWS. RADIO WILL PLAY GOOD MUSIC AGAIN IF WE YELL LOUD ENOUGH… YOU

WANNA BITCH ABOUT THE MUSIC SCENE.. THEN GO DO SOMETHING TO HELP CHANGE IT.

That loud enough? 🙂 thanks for the interview and for not asking 35

questions about what our favorite color is and shit like that. Much love*
