Seattle Bass Player John Jet Pagano Answers 20 Questions~You Just May Wish You Had a Sicilian Grandmother After You Read This!



In the early 19th century, Marcel Proust was given a questionnaire called "an album to record thoughts and feelings," also known as a "confession album."

Their version is fairly basic, but a lot of fun to read, so when we were exploring creative ways to interview musicians, we realized with a little tweaking we could come up with an interview that was perfect. Where other publications fail, we will succeed by letting the monkey ask all the questions!
