Another couple of questions occurred to me.

For the band in general:

What percentage of the back catalog would you think you could just play on a whim? (For example, if someone at a show made a request, and you were inclined to take requests, what are the chances you're practiced up enough to play it? I would imagine that it's near impossible to be well versed on 150+ different songs, especially when most of them you don't play very often)

I would expect (since he wrote most the material) Dave can probably pull a pretty good version of most anything out of thin air, but I would guess that the rest of the band has likely never played anything besides 'Stranger' from Say What You Will live... and probably very little practicing (of course I'm going with the first record to use the extreme example).

For everyone besides Dave: How much of a challenge is it, joining a band that already has a large catalog of songs, in terms of the pressure to learn a lot of that back material?

I think of some of my all time favorite Soul Asylum songs (Veil of Tears, Nice Guys Don't Get Paid, Be On Your Way, Heavy Rotation, Long Way Home, Ain't That Tough, Freaks, No Man's Land...... I could go on and on) and while I recognize that shows are going to be done mainly with more casual fans in mind (play the biggest hits: Runaway Train, Misery, etc) and also to play new material (which is awesome. Would love to hear more new material more often) I'm holding out hope that a lot of the awesome stuff from the 80s & early 90s can still find a place in set lists.

Will Freak Accident ever make it to an official cd release?

This is my #1 question as well, & is the one that is the most important to me.

Freak Accident gets a LOT of love from most of us here on this site, so we would REALLY love to see it get released officially. I had always wanted to have the original Soul Asylum version of Never Felt Before get on a Soul Asylum CD(actually, BACK onto a CD after it got cut from The Silver Lining & moved over to Dan's Golden Smog CD), but of course that can never happen since Dan left the band, so I hope that I can still dream of Freak Accident getting an official release.

#2) To each band member: What is your favorite song to play live, and why?

#3) To each band member: Is there a particular song from the SA catalogue that never gets played live, that you would like to resurrect & play live again from time to time?

Finally, THANK YOU, for finally embracing & using the internet as a way to provide some interaction with your most dedicated fans!!!

Yes! Please thank you.
To Dave:
How is your relationship with Dan? Do you keep in touch?
Do you have plans to release another solo album or another project?
If they come to Brazil, I would love to play "Endless Farwell" with you or any other!
For all of the band, including Dave:
Some new band or favorite of yours recently?
Thank you so much.
