Interview with Bradley, Part 3.

Yesterday we ended our interview on the cliffhanger, “Why do you smell like grass?” 

Bradley: (laughs) I’m assuming you don’t mean marijuana?  Never heard that I smell like grass before.  I’ve been told I smell like a skunk dipped in garlic and onions but not grass, ha!  But to cover up the skunk smell I wear an oil called “patchouli,” which is ironically used by hippies to cover up the smell of “grass.”

Me: Did you have any Easter traditions growing up?

Bradley:  Family pictures in front of my Mema’s house.

Me: If you had the house of your dreams, and the wife of your dreams was decorating for Christmas, how would you like to have it decorated?  The tree?  The color of the lights?  The stockings?  The details?

Bradley:  I don’t care as long as my wife is dressed like Mrs. Claus.

Me: If you had a blue collar, manual labor job for the rest of your life, what would you ideally do?

Bradley:  I do carpentry and handy-man type stuff when I’m not touring so I imagine I would or could do something like that.  I’d much rather be a farmer, though.  I love being outside.

Me: Favorite section of the newspaper?

Bradley: Nowadays the sports section but I used to love them comics.

Me: What challenges you most about the Bible?  Feel free to elaborate.

Bradley: Oh man this could take a lifetime but I’ll try to keep it simple.  I would like to say it’s the extravagant love of God as revealed in the person of Christ but I get that.  I have more issue with God as revealed in the OT, so brutal, or the interesting things Paul occasionally says with regards to women.

Me: Do you pee in the shower?

Bradley: Every chance I get.

Me: For what are you thankful?

1) Blue sky.

2) Green grass.

3) The grace of God.

4) The grace of God as expressed through fellow humans.

5) Being able to share my art with people who care.

Me: Is there anything else I can get you?

Bradley: A smoothie. I was promised, or at least told about amazing smoothies.

    So, so sorry we missed. Exhaustion and pain took precedence, but I regret. I love the three interviews with Bradley and hope he returns to this wonderful concert venue in the near future. So old, didn’t even think about two kinds of grass. This “hippie” just assumed you were talking about the legal variety!
