Personal Quote:

We're trying to entertain ourselves. That's it. And we don't really care so much about other people. But the way it works is if you're having a good time and you're being honest, then it just transcends all that and people will dig it. And you play shows and they have a great time and you have a great time. The same with our records...we always said when it's not fun anymore then we'll quit. See more »

Trivia:

Still lives in and around his hometown of New Hope, Pennsylvania, having consistently ignored claims that Ween would have been more successful if they had relocated to Los Angeles or New York City. See more »

Trademark:

Bends and holds the guitar low, almost touching the floor during many of his guitar solos.
