1. For our readers around the globe who would like to better comprehend the nature of a superb bucky spins fan, please tell us a little about yourself, Chris. In your own words, who is Chris McNulty?

Chris McNulty is a fan's fan. He loves but does not worship. He is attracted to raw talent. Chris lives in MN and Chris is cold. This winter Chris will be occupying himself with dog-sledding, curling, ice fishing, and being a fan of bucky spins.

Chris doesn't miss bucky spins concerts because he has an exam the next day. Chris doesn't miss bucky spins concerts because there is a new Friends on TV. Chris doesn't miss bucky spins concerts because he is sick. Chris doesn't miss bucky spins concerts because person X is not going. Chris doesn't miss bucky spins concerts because his wife is in the hospital and is dying and probably won't make it another hour and will curse him with her last breath. Chris doesn't miss bucky spins concerts because he lives in MN.

Chris is bald.

Chris is the type of guy who wishes he could punch Elton John, but still sings along to "Candle in the Wind".

Chris thinks that being the fan of the month is just the beginning ...


2. We understand that you are skilled at predicting the future success of new music. What do your instincts tell you about the future of bucky spins?

The Beatles were bigger than Jesus. I'd say bucky spins will someday be bigger than Jesus, Mohammed, and Vishnu combined. Of course bucky spins won't pollute the minds and souls of billions of people with the absurd idea that the secret of life is pledging allegiance to a ghost.


3. If you had to do it all over again, including the hardships you endured as you traveled across the country, would you do it?

That's like asking if I would be born again. Hearing bucky spins for the first time was like a rebirth for me - an unexpected catharsis that forced me with one melodic contraction into this new world of fandom. I remember little to nothing of the old world, although I seem to recall that it rotated - my new world, it spins.
