What would you ask AFI?

One of our readers, who is a very good friend of mine won a contest and will interview AFI next Sunday on Boston's WFNX on the radio.

The point of this post is that you suggest him what questions he can ask them. He will be interviewing all of them. He will credit whoever gives a good one!

Post your suggestions as a comment here.

  3. Are the touring experiences different than they were say, 10 years ago? If so, is there anything specific you miss about those times?Do you (Davey and Jade) purposely change your hait style every release, or is it just coincidental?Are there any questions you haven't been asked before? =p

  6. People have often said "Imitate, then Innovate" when discussing the creative process and trying to find your "sound", considering how open AFI is about its influences, who would you say you spent the most time immitating in your search to find your own sound.

  7. Wow, so many questions I would ask. Here are just a few:Adam: While you guys were still writing the album, you wrote on the Despair Faction board about a song or melody that got stuck in your head, even though you guys hadn't even worked on it together as a full band yet. Do you remember which song that was? (Did it make the album?)Davey: When working on lyrics, are you usually pretty good at nailing them down on the first shot, or do you tinker endlessly with the words?Jade: Is it weird having your brother as your tour manager? Does this mean he gets to boss you around 'cuz he's the manager, or does it mean you get to boss him around 'cuz you're the artist?Hunter: What's the best and worst part of living on a bus?For the whole band: Your sound changes from one album to the next, and yet every album still sounds distinctly like AFI. In your opinion, what are the hallmarks that distinguish the AFI sound?For the whole band: Do you have a band ethos? What do you value?For the whole band: How would you describe the way the four of you work together as a band?

  8. 1. How would AFI from the Black Sails era react if they heard Crash Love?2. As a band, what do you guys do for fun together aside from playing/writing music?3. If you guys found out that maintaining a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle was going to kill you, would your dietary choices change? (Would you die for vegetarianism/veganism?)4. Do any of you still skateboard?5. Do you have any tips for bands that are just starting out?

  9. Here's another question:Long before Crash Love came out, some AFI fans put together a voting tournament to determine the "ultimate" AFI song. After 8 rounds of voting and 128 songs spanning your earliest records through Decemberunderground, Days of the Phoenix eventually came out on top. However, if the seeding had been different, another song could easily have won. If you had to pick one song as THE ultimate AFI song, which song would it be and why?(I think the other finalists were GCIST and This Celluloid Dream. Can't remember the last song in the final four. Bleed Black?)

  12. Oh ignore my question above.. this is better since It's more interesting for us Rock band players.Will AFI be taking part in the Rock Band Network? Since the band will be controlling what songs they put on it.

  13. Will we be expecting more AFI albums in the future? And if so how many would you say?

  16. What times of day/night do you guys like to write at?Do you guys get homesick at all or is that something you've gotten over in the years you've been a band?And what has been your favorite song to play live so far this tour?That's all I've got so far.... I have no idea what I'd say to them. :(

  17. i just thought, when he sang 'while the fries tried to break out bones' he must of been thinking about that for ages after cuz at the end he was 'that included me singing erm...while the fries tried to break our bones'ask when they will be coming to the UK, i miss them.

  18. This album gives your inspirations a more obvious voice. Was this intentional or purely accidental?

  19. Please ask Davey why he stopped blogging on AFI's Myspace page. Those used to light up my days!

  20. Is the lyric in Miss Murder "reaching for the golden ring we'd never let go" a reference to Catcher in the Rye?
