Hey Tom!
I heard you and your wife had a baby around in November.
How does it feel being a dad?
(Oh, and if it's not too much to ask, what's her name?)
:]
It's amazing! All the cliches are true. My daughters name is Evelyn.

next time you're in fl, do you plan on smashing some of those white crosses?
They actually took them down a couple months ago.

Tom, where'd you learn your sweet dance moves? Product of being a child of the 80s?
I stole them all from Madonna

Hi tom!
Did tom petty's full moon fever influence white crosses? What's your favorite song off that album?
Yes, it did, really heavily in fact. The song "High Pressure Low" I was going for a "Running Down A Dream" type vibe, a good driving song. "Full Moon Fever" was the first cd I ever bought.

Hey Tom. I live in Orlando. I know that you are touring with Silversun Pickups soon but I was wondering if there is any chance of a "Gift Certificates" show around here or in Gainseville anytime soon???
Who's Gift Certificate?

Hey Tom, it's Steve Lepore, we met at Bamboozle, thanks for being so nice.

How did getting Franz Nicolay to play with you guys come about? Is it just a one time thing?
Well, we've had a keyboard/multi-instrumentalist with us for the past couple tours. I'm a huge fan of Franz, both solo and all the bands he's been a part of. I'm not sure how long he'll be touring with us but it's awesome to have him on board. We're practicing with him in about an hour.

Is Franz a full time member of the band now?
I know Franz has a new record of his own coming out soon and I'm sure that he'll be touring in support of that. As long as he wants to play with us he's welcome, we're just taking it one tour at a time though.

Are we ever going to see Lehigh acres, Hot Shots, and Bob Dylan dream released?
Lehigh and Bob Dylan are on the special edition version of the album. We only demo'd Hot Shots. Not sure if the demo's will ever come out, maybe?

Hey Tom! Saw you open for Billy Talent in Toronto. Seeing you live was amazing! Ever plan on coming back and playing a full show?
We're hoping to be back in Canada on a headline tour this September. Fingers crossed.

were you upset when the album leaked?
Not in the slightest. We knew it was only a matter of time once copies where sent out to radio and press. Bottom line is that as long as people listen I don't care how they get their hands on it.

How was touring with Jaguar Love? Are they good friends of yours?
We toured with the Blood Brothers a couple years back, they're friends for sure. I'm a huge fan.

Hey, Tom.
I don't know if you'll remember me but... I talked to you at the merch table during your show at The Culture room in Ft. Lauderdale FL.

I was the blonde kid who told you my story about how I got into from my brother and everything.
I'm even in the fan appreciation ( which I HIGHLY appreciated! ) video for I Was A Teenage Anarchist twice. Both time crowd surfing ( :30 & 1:13 )

Where did you learn to play guitar?
I've been playing guitar since I was 8. I took lessons when I was younger but never really enjoyed it. I learned everything I know (which is limited) from playing along to records.

Tom, do you take the White Crosses leak as a good thing or a bad thing for the band?
Again, as long as people are listening it's a good thing.
