Only One? Thanks to a few Acoustic Christmases, I've seen Chumbawumba AND the Sneaker Pimps.
9. What band do you like musically but dislike the members of?
Good Question, but hard to answer. Oasis.
10. What is the most musically involved you have ever been?
(I'm copying Pauls answer) I had a radio show at Biola and helped put togther some concerts and in studio performances. (We had Mars Hill in studio!!!) I also MC'd a Blue Christmas.

There are a few performers that I've never seen that I would like to: Paul McCartney, the Stones, Elton John and especially Garth Brooks.
12. What is your favorite band shirt?
Gotta be the bright Orange O.C. Supertones Shirt with the Orange on it.
13. What music posters do you have up in your room?
None right now. I have a bunch of U2 stuff to put up in the new garage when we move. I have a Beck poster and some Pumpkins stuff, too.
14. What musician would you like to be in love with for a day?
Only One? just kidding. It'd have to be Shirley Manson. An old school shout out to Stephanie Kelly of Hume Lake fame, too.
15. Pat Benatar or Cyndi Lauper?
My sister would probably want me to say Cyndi Lauper.
16. Sabbath or solo Ozzy?
Ozzy. Crazy Train and Mama I'm Coming Home (and War Pigs) outweigh Paranoid.
17. Commodores or solo Lionel Ritchie?
18. Punk rock, hip hop or heavy metal?
Depends on my mood. I don't have an overridding preference.

I'm not qualified to give that an answer.
20. Did you know that filling out this survey makes you a music geek?
Of course.
21. What was the greatest decade for music?
As a U2 fan, I would probably say the 00's. But definitely the 60s.

Nine -
U2 (Rattle & Hum, Joshua Tree documentary, U2 Go Home, Elevation in Boston, Vertigo in Chicago)

Not really.

Nothing. Usually presents these days. Plus the occasional dollar or two from Itunes (next up will, sadly, probably be "Bad Day" by whoever sings it. I just bought Johnny Cash's "Hurt", too.
