Stone Temple Pilots singer Jeff Gutt and Seether bassist Dale Stewart recently did a joint Reddit AMA, and Gutt discussed being jumped at a club in Ohio.
Where are the best and worst places you’ve played? What is a food/drink staple you must have while on tour?
DALE – The best place we have ever played is Australia. I forget exactly but it was just amazing. Really good. Worst place is in San Diego. It sucks because I love San Diego. Playing there is just really, really hard to impress anyone there. I need my Jameson. It is part of my warm up routine. Jameson and Tabasco. I love these two things so much that my right in ear is red and says Tabasco and my left in ear is green and says Jameson.
JEFF – It was Rock on the Range. It was a big moment for me to walk out with the guys on stage. There was a place in Canton Ohio where we sold it out and the bouncer and the owner jumped me and kicked me out. Just something healthy.
omg guys, huge fan of both of you!! Thanks for doing this AMA!!!!!
What are some of your pre-show rituals?
DALE – We don’t really have a ritual. One and a half hours before we play I make a drink for myself and one for Shaun. And yeah that is the closest thing to a ritual. Two hours is just too much and an hour is not enough so an hour and a half is a golden number.
JEFF – I need to have a space to myself for five minutes to meditate and clear my head. That’s about it. I don’t do vocal warm ups unfortunately.
