Three Minutes With….Andrew Freeman
You’ve seen him sing for Lynch Mob and on tour as the guitarist for the Offspring and in a band called Thirty Stone. Currently he fronts the Orange County, California band The Thuggs, but more about them in a moment. You’ve probably also seen at least one of the bands he’s been in over the years if you reside or have visited the OC -both East Coast and West Coast versions.
I recently spent three minutes with Andrew at Feelgoods’ Rock Bar in Las Vegas. Here’s the result:
If you became President of the United States, what would your first order of business be?
Wow. I feel like I’m on the Miss America Pageant. So, I’m gonna start my answer like a Miss America Pageant contestant. If I were elected President of the United States, my first order of business would be to outlaw really bad shows in Las Vegas so that I wouldn’t get thrown into a barrel like a man on a sea ship in the 1600s, getting bad things done to my face because I’m in the barrel by a bunch of sea-people. I don’t know where I’m going with this, but I figured I’d give you the most interesting answer I can, and then I’m just going to count… Forty Mississippi…. Forty-one Mississippi…. Forty-two Mississippi….
No, actually, my first order of business would be to make a radio show on NPR so that the intellectual community can hear it because there’s there’s a lot of intellectual things going on here right now, in a parking lot… Off-Strip… in Las Vegas..no, actually, maybe in the Champagne Room at the Mandalay Bay. <laughter> On the roof of the Mandalay Bay. And I would make the Champagne Room on the roof of the Mandalay Bay the Oval Office. But it wouldn’t be oval, it’d be square. In turn, it’d be called the Square Office. Thank you.
You’ve earned your plug – go for it!
I’m in a new band called The Thuggs, check us out at at www.TheThuggs.com, a little cover band with James D’Anda of Bulletboys fame, and a couple other dudes. We do this thing, and we are taking it on the road eventually. It’s a new thing we’re working on. There’s that, and there’s a TV show I’m working on right now. I can’t tell you the name of it yet, but it’s gonna be huge! ‘Cause it’s still in “the works” so we can’t have anyone steal it…
The Thuggs currently play every Thursday night at the Gas Lamp in Long Beach, California. Look for them at www.theThuggs.com and coming soon to a venue near you!
