Q&A with Bobby Long

What was the first concert you attended? It was either "Status Quo" or "stiff Little Fingers" I can't remember, but I loved both. 

Where and when was the first show you played? I played a show with my first band "Grand Old Duke" at this bar in Bradford. Our bass player threw his new bass to the floor after we played a RATM song. 

What is your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experience? Driving from Denver to New York straight on drugs with my buddy Rob Dwyer. 

Which of your songs is your favorite and why? I like a new song called "Something Blue Something Borrowed". 

If you could open for any artist in the next year, who would it be? Ron Sexsmith. 

What 3 artists have you listened to obsessively in the last month? Loudon Wainwright, Elvis Costello, and BB King. 

What did you want to be when you were growing up? A soccer player. 

What is your most embarrassing moment? Got my finger stuck in the lipstick holder at a store. Pulled the thing off the wall and created a huge mess, I was 15. 

What is your favorite phrase? "What a knob head" 

Cat person, dog person, or both? I love my cat, but I am a dog person. 

Books or movies? Books romantically practically movies. 

What would most people be surprised to learn about you? I love the TV show "Gigolos" on Showtime.
