Every Time I Die's Andy Williams Likes Solo Time and Movies
When calling Every Time I Die guitarist Andy Williams for a chat, we interrupted his Wii session. "I am playing some all-sport game, with lacrosse and hockey," Williams admitted. "It's something to do. The older I get, the less things I like to do. I am 32 now, and I don't have as many friends anymore."
One thing the guitarist does have, other than rippin' riffs for his band's new album 'New Junk Aesthetic,' is his love of movies. He sports a 'Not for sale, Francis' tattoo -- a reference to 'Pee Wee's Big Adventure' -- and he wants to get his ribs etched with the likeness of Bill Murray as Ernie McCracken in the little-seen, yet cult classic bowling flick, 'Kingpin,' with "him holding the ball and his hair all a mess!"
As a total buff, Williams attends four to five movies a week. "My favorite sound in the world is how it sounds underwater, since there is no sound and I love to sit by myself in a movie theater not dealing with anyone. I can turn my phone off for two hours and zone out." So in honor of Williams' love of cinema, he told us his top movies of 2009 ... so far.
'Inglorious Basterds': "That was awesome, unreal. Just saw it."
'Moon': "It's with Sam Rockwell. He is on a moon by himself and goes nuts."
'RockNRolla': "It came out at the tail end of last year and was better than 'Snatch,' which was great. But they are making three for a trilogy, and the acting was unreal. Everyone out-acted themselves."
