Chris Bavaria plays bass guitar for both Mindset and Praise and is a REALLY cool guy! I got to meet him when Betrayed and Praise played in San Francisco a few months ago and thought it would be really cool to interview a guy who plays in two different bands. He is also a really cool photographer. You should look at his photos!!!
PMAKid: What are your three favorite books and why?
Chris: The Dharma Bums by Jack Kerouac - I was living in the Bay Area at the time and instantly connected with Kerouac's writing and the way it got me excited to be alive and be adventurous.
Salad Days by Charles Romalotti - This is a great novel about growing up being a punk. It is almost scary how some of the experiences the main character has were so similar to my own. Everyone should read this!
A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn - I love reading about history and this is the real deal. Find out about all the horrible stuff we've done! I guess it's kind of depressing in retrospect. They aren't teaching this stuff in your high school history class.
