Stavros Polentas, singer/guitarist for South Florida's Smiths-loving trio the Secret French Kissing Society, answers the question:
What band or musician would you like to fight?
"If you mean someone I really hate and would like to kick the shit out of, I'd say Lenny Kravitz or Pharrell Williams from the Neptunes. I'll go on the record for Pharrell Williams. He is everything that is wrong with most music today. Now, if I could fight someone whom I respect, like in Fight Club when Brad Pitt says he'd fight Ernest Hemingway, then I would probably want to fight Bob Dylan. He's a boxer too, you know. Most people don't know that, but he was into it. And I would fight him, say, circa 1974. If the whole band had to fight another group in a big gang fight, like at the end of The Outsiders, then I say the Beatles. Who else even matters? The Velvet Underground? Now that was a gang! We would lose both fights, though, because we are only a three-piece. And I wouldn't hit John Lennon." -- Audra Schroeder
