Jello Biafra AKA Count Ringworm AKA Osama McDonald AKA Eric Boucher

Spode: Who first influenced you to form a band?

Jello: A lot of things. Walter Mitty, if you know who he is?

Spode: No.

Jello: He's a fictitious character from America who spends all of his time dreaming about things he wishes he was. He's a fighter-plane pilot, at another point he's a surgeon, things like that. Well, we've all got a Walter Mitty influence. Plus the Ramones. They played this country/western club in Denver, and the patrons were scared shitless. I loved many minutes of it. It was January 1977. I enjoyed all the energy they had and especially that there weren't any guitar solos. It sort of hit me, I should do this, I could do this. I don't have to lock myself in a closet for 10 years and then come out and imitate Jimi Hendrix after all!
