What club do you hit when you want to party after the gig? Why?
In Portland we always go to Dot's; in New York it's always Veselka's. Everywhere else it's a hot bath and a good book.
What do you love about Toronto?
Its large population of Jamaicans and the cultural blendings that result.
What do you hate?
Its attitude that it is the only worthwhile Canadian city.
Most memorable border crossing experience?
Once they wouldn't let us in with a drive-away car. We just went to the next bridge over and all was cool.
Wildest time in T.O.?
Shooting scenes for G.B. Jones's no-budget flick The Yo-Yo Gang.
