Ten Quick Questions With Eddie Spaghetti of The Supersuckers
by Michele Christopher

Today's question-answerer is a founding member of one of the most kick ass rock and roll groups to ever exist, The Supersuckers (we reviewed a Supersuckers albums here, and a show here).

eddiespaghetti.jpg1. Who are you?

Eddie Spaghetti. International ambassador of rock, co-creator of the Supersuckers, husband, father, actor, model, author, artist, renaissance man.

2. Zombies - undead monstosity or the next logical step in human
evolution ?

Or how 'bout "Yet another sustainable, renewable food source for todays free thinking carnivore". Let's turn the tables on these undead fuckers!

3. Young Elvis or Fat Elvis?


4. If you were a superhero, what would your name be?

"Captain Apathy" or maybe, "The Gluttonous" or "Mr. Anonymous"

5. You are the last man on earth, and it is your job to perpetuate the
human race, whether you like it or not. Your choice of potential mates is
between Wonder Woman, the Bionic Woman, Super Girl or Hilary Clinton. Which
one do you choose?

Wonder Woman. Does anyone ever choose anyone else?

Or: You are the last woman on earth, and it is your job to perpetuate the
human race, whether you like it or not. Your choice of potential mates:
Batman, Superman, Wolverine or Stephen Hawking. Which one do you choose?

My wife says Stephen Hawking. Go figure...

6. What was your first car?

'72 Volkswagen Squareback. Tan. "The Toaster Machine". Saved up two years of paper route money to buy it when I turned sixteen and quickly totaled it. Sad.

7. If you were going to show me around your city/town, where's the first
place you would take me?

To your hotel. Where I'd leave you until it was time to go out. Then I'd make you meet me at my favorite local bar, The Sunset Tavern where we'd get hammered and I'd walk home, leaving you to figure out how to get back to the hotel on your own. I'm a terrible host.

8. What's the last album you bought?

Jerry Lee Lewis - "The Last Man Standing"

9. Do you have an arch enemy? Would you like one?

I used to, but I defeated him. I reckon I could use a new one. They're kinda fun.

10 What's the title of the movie they are going to make about your
teenage years?

"A Staggering Waste Of Potential" or "How I Killed My Parents' Hopes And Dreams: A True Story"

Thank you, Eddie, for participating in TQQ. We are kinda big, big fans of Supersuckers here at FTTW and if you are back in NY anytime soon (looks like Nov....), we'd like to buy you a drink.

The Supersuckers are currently on tour with the New York Dolls as part of Little Steven's Underground Garage Rolling Rock n Roll Show.

you would ditch us on the way home from the bar? but we are cute!

Thank you eddie for doing this for us


I disagree on Stephen Hawking. I don't want to populate the world with a bunch of kids who are smarter than I am. That's the quickest way to self-extinction.

He would make an interesting sex toy though.


Wow that is truly AWESWOME.


But is Wonder Woman really human?


"Or how 'bout "Yet another sustainable, renewable food source for todays free thinking carnivore". Let's turn the tables on these undead fuckers!"

Wow. I think that's the best idea I've ever heard. And I was with God when he came up with the idea for prostitution, so that's saying a lot.


But is Wonder Woman really human?

Good question. She was born on Earth and is for all intents and purposes, homo sapien. However, she is imbued with power from the "gods" so that probably, technically, makes her a meta-human.

/geek talk


Repopulating the earth with meta-humans would be interesting. Maybe it would eventually end up like the world of the ancient Greek gods, with people birthing babies out of their heads and sleeping with their mothers. Good times!

And speaking as a person whose life goal is to become a zombie, the "renewable food source" idea is not a very good one. Zombies get that way usually because of some nuclear/chemical happening. I think eating a zombie would either cause you to become one (not a bad life choice, really) or kill you.

However, using zombies as slave labor in sweatshops might be a better idea.


well now wait a second michele

zombies are kind of like chicken. you have to cook them to a certain degree to rid them of the bacteria.

Now the second step is finding out that degree of temperature to get to. That's why you have children to test the food before you consume the zombie flesh.

You feed the kids and tie them up and watch it they go all like zombie on you. If they do, you kill them. Then you try again with your other kid but cook the zombie more.

See, I've got this shit all figured out


You are going to be an interesting stepfather.


how come all squarebacks end up totalled within weeks of purchase?

(uh, did i just say 'how come?')


Cooking zombies is easy but finding a fresh one is difficult.


Fuck zombies. I like steak.


Buy the zombie a steak and maybe you can....
