shout-out to PZO


PZO: As a band, what are your best qualities?
Ryan: I think our best quality in our band is our friendship. I love music, I love playing shows, but all that matters is the friendship. We're all best friends.
PZO: Did you guys grow up together?
Ryan: Yeah. Josh, Dan and I have been playing since we were like 14 years old.

PZO: What is the most misunderstood lyric in one of your songs?
Ryan: I think that people think that our first single "Until The Day I Die" is about girls, but it's actually about our band. <laughs>

PZO: What is one of your favorite lines from one of your songs?
Ryan: "And The Hero Will Drown" All the lyrics in that songs are my favorite.

PZO: What band or artist would you like to see call it quits?
Ryan: I don't know-Godsmack? You know what, not even Godsmack. No one. Music is music even bad music.

PZO: If you could pass a law what would it be?
Ryan: I don't do drugs, but I think it should be legal. It can be illegal if they're driving, but let them do what they want to themselves. I don't do it, but they can.

PZO: What's the worst advice you've ever been given?
Ryan: Have a back up plan.

PZO: Is their something you like to improve about your music?
Ryan: Yeah, like a million things. I wish we had more time to write more songs on our first record.

PZO: Is there a decision you hope you never have to make?
Ryan: I hope it never happens, it's very unlikely, but I hope no one ever leaves the band.

PZO: What was the last meaningful thing you did?
Ryan: I just wrote a song. That meant a lot. It was about an hour ago.

PZO: What's your motto for life?

Ryan: Don't take life too seriously. I don't know. I don't really have one.

PZO: Given the opportunity who would you kidnap for a day?
Ryan: Adriana Lima. Do you know who that is?
PZO: Yeah, the Victoria's Secret model.
Ryan: Yeah or Owen Wilson.
