In the twelfth piece to our Zombie Apocalypse segment, where we are asking band members what they would do if a zombie outbreak happened, we have RAMMING SPEED drummer Jonah Livingston.
You just played a gig far from home and take a step outside the venue for some fresh air and see a hoard of zombies running down the street towards you, what do you do?
If it’s a bar – walk back in and lock the doors. If it’s anywhere else, run to a bar, go inside, lock the doors.
You manage to tell your bandmates and people backstage but you notice a ruckus coming from the front of the venue, you can only grab what’s around you for a weapon, what is it?
A Jackson flying V seems like the best bet for stabbing and whacking.
As you’re trying to leave the venue, you notice a band member has been attacked by a zombie, do you turn your back and take off or fight the undead and save your friend?
If he’s been bitten then the dude can fuck off, but if we’re all still human and the fight is raging, I’d definitely try and save a homie… Though, when trouble arises Pete is the first dude running, so can’t say the same for him haha.
You’re about to drive away when a car collides into the trailer, zombies are all over the place, do you get out to detach the trailer or force someone else to?
Man up dude! Teamwork that shit.
While on the road, what is the band listening to?
The song “Fear and Trembling” by Disfear is always in the rotation and that track definitely sounds like the end of the god damn world.
Along the way you pass a store, it seems safe, what does the band load up on?
Nutrition bars, lube, canned goods, wet wipes, axes, lighters, extra long condoms (not wide), tums, poppers, flashlights, margarita mix, tofutti cuties, beer, etc… standard zombie shit.
You notice that there’s a kitten in the store, do you take it with you or leave it to be an appetizer for the zombies? If you rescue the kitty, what do you name it?
Dude, what kind of a horrible person are you?! TAKE THE KITTEN! Duh! We’ll call him (her?) Lemmy and he’ll (she’ll?) lead the way to a brighter future.
After hiding out for a while, you circle back to the venue. Upon entering you find your tourmates as zombies feasting on fans. What do you do?
Instagram that shit. Our PR lady has been bugging me to do more “social networking”.
You return backstage to grab your precious gear, but a zombie has it. Forget about it or fight the thing off and claim your possessions?
Eh, I need a new drum set anyway (yo holler at me C&C!). If some dead dude is working on his paradiddles he can keep it.
In the midst of everything going on you notice you are turning into a zombie. You gather with the other zombie musicians to form a new undead band. What do you call the band?
The Shitty Beatles.
