Heart to Heart with Alex Johnson from the CAB

So I had the chance to sit down and talk with Alex Johnson, drummer of The CAB, tonight and I have to say it was awesome. Here's the inside scoop you've been after:

How long have you been playing drums? 11 years (he's 20, so since he was 9!)

How did The CAB get together? They all went to high school together and were in local bands and decided to try playing together at the Rock'N Java one night. The rest is history.

How has The Bamboozle Roadshow been for you? Great because they're touring with their friends We The Kings again (this is their 5th tour together) and almost every show has been sold out!

How many national tours have you been on? They've been pretty much non-stop for the past 2 years (this is their 8th national tour!).

What's your favorite thing about touring? Just being able to hang out with the other bands and making friends with them. They learn so much about music and find inspiration from one another.

There are three Alex's in your band. How do you distinguish between one another? None of them go by Alex. There is a singer (Alex DeLeon), a Marshall (Alex Marshall) and Johnson (Alex Johnson).

What do you do when you're not touring? Play video games (Call of Duty is his favorite, and yes, he has gotten to the Zombie level) and hang out with his little sisters (he has 4!).

What do you plan on doing after The Bamboozle Roadshow? They're doing a headliner over the summer (stay tuned to for the opener) and hopefully putting a new record together soon.

And just for fun.....

What do you have on your iPod? Blink 182, Sum 41, Green Day
What's your favorite color? Red
What's your favorite food? Taco Bell (he orders the Crunchwrap Supreme)
If you weren't in a band, what would you be doing? A firefighter, because his dad is one!
How can fans connect with you? Twitter coming soon...he's downloading the Twitter application to his iPhone tomorrow, so check back in for his user name!
