Q&A Hole: Bring Any Musician Back From the Dead

…but now they’re in your band forever

"ummm Miles Davis... no wait he'd be terrible to have in the tour van!"

Last weekend, we took the Q&A Hole to ACL Fest to see how our cardboard queries would fare with national artists. Duckwrth, Fidlar, Hippie Sabotage, Pink Sweat$, and Briston Maroney were all brave enough let us blindside them with a theoretical question about resurrection.

“Congratulations! You have the power to bring any dead musician back to life and they are now part of your band. Who would you choose and what is the first song you would play?”

Q&A Hole is edited by John Anderson, produced by Tamar Price, and thought up by myself, Austin Chronicle music and cannabis reporter Kevin Curtin. Jacob Schmidt recorded the audio, and the theme song is by myself, Jonas Wilson, and Timothy Abdnour.

Check out our daily ACL coverage with previews, reviews, interviews, photos, and more.
