Time for the last interview in our „favorite songs quiz”, and I’m proud to present you the bass player from Prong, Corey Taylor solo tours, Sebastian Bach, Black President, New Dead Radio, touring member for Stone Sour and many other acts, including the number 1 Billboard Charts album „This Is Your Life” – A Tribute to Ronnie James Dio on the track „Rainbow In The Dark”, mr. Jason Christopher. The first time i saw this guy in action was back in 2011 with Corey Taylor (Stone Sour, Slipknot) at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia and he was, quoting Corey, „off the charts!” Watch this and then let’s see what Jason has to say about his favorite songs. From divorce records to Metallica and Nicki Minaj, Jason speaks the truth!
1. Favorite current song:
I’ve really been into „Voices” by Alice in Chains the past month or so… great verses, and a chorus that is easy to sing along to. It puts me in a good mood while strengthening my backing vocals.
2. Favorite lyric from a song:
„Chop your breakfast on a mirror” – Metallica – Master Of Puppets
3. Favorite song from your childhood:
Aime by the Pure Prairie League. My little sister is named after that song, and I still love playing and singing it to this day.
4. Favorite club anthem:
I’m not really a „club guy” but if I was, I guess it would be Groove Is In The Heart by Dee Lite.
Beck’s entire Sea Change record… divorce records are always the best.
6. Favorite movie soundtrack song:
I love when the scene in the movie is so good, that you can’t think about anything else but that scene whenever you hear the song on the radio, no matter how long it’s been. Like Stealers Wheel’s „Stuck In The Middle” – can’t not think about cutting a cops ear off when I hear that, or Derek & the Dominoes in the Goodfella’s scene where Jimmy kills everyone… but one of my all time favourites is when they play Freebird at the end of Devil’s Rejects. I fuckin’ love me some Skynyrd and Bill Moseley!!!
7. Favorite „top 40” song:
My kid is 17 months old, and dances really hard whenever my wife puts on Nicki Minaj, so I put it on all the time for him now… and can’t help but bang my head to it while he dances… fuck the world.
8. All time favorite song:
That’s a tough one man… there are so many songs that shifted my perception, and changed my life. I’m really into playing the acoustic guitar, and my favourite song to play for the past 15 years on that thing has always been „Wanted Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi. You can obviously tell I don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks about me…
9. Favorite song from your own music:
No one would know, or give a shit about what my favourite song is that I wrote. I am pretty proud of Ruining Lives on the new Prong record which I co-wrote with Tommy Victor. I’m also a hired gun, so I’ve played a lot of cool songs, with a lot of cool people. Don’t really have a favourite in that section.
