What's the best rumour you've ever heard about yourself?
That I was big in Japan (or anywhere, for that matter).
Which actor would you want to play the lead in the film The Ron Sexsmith Story?
Probably Halle Berry because I think she could nail it.
What's your biggest regret?
I wish I'd sung better on my earlier records. It's probably not my biggest regret, but it's good enough for now. Or NOW.
If you'd never gotten involved in writing and playing music, how would you be making a living today?
I'd probably still be a courier. Or a detective.
What song do you wish you'd written and why?
Fireball, by Deep Purple. It rocks harder than just about anything.
