Blake Webb – Music to have a good time too.
RS: Is this the genre that fits all the band members?

RS: Would you call your branding a ‘classic’ rock style?
CB – No, just rock-n-roll.
Jordan West – According to the internet, Creed is now “dad rock”. So, I don’t even know what to call us anymore lol
RS: The current release “Son of a Bitch” has an element of AC/DC to it, any opinions from the band there?
CB – I’ve been compared, and I quote directly from a critic, “Singer looks like a fat Axl Rose singing like Jack Black in an AC/DC band.” So there’s that.
BW – A great band to be compared to.
RS: Whose idea was it to create the rockumentary?
CB – It was mine I believe. I wanted people to know what it was like playing in Testarossa.
RS: How much of it was scripted?
Buddy Radford- 0% scripted
RS: Who all participated in the short film?
RS: What is coming next for Testarossa? Can we expect more performing dates in the near future?

BW – YES!
RS: Finally, will there be a turkey on the Thanksgiving table this year or?
