10 snabba med Matt Kelly från Dropkick Murphys

På torsdag välkomnar ett utsålt KB i Malmö celticpunkarna och på lördag är det dax för Stockholm och Annexet att få sig en duning säckpipekryddad Oi! Ett fåtal biljetter finns kvar och kan köpas här. Rockbladet kommer vara på plats och dokumentera lördagsspelningen på Instagram och Facebook.

Uppvärmingen inför Dropkick Murphys Sverigebesök har börjat och Rockbladet fick 10 snabba med trummisen Matt Kelly. Håll till godo!

1) In the studio or on the road?

Definitely the road. I like the studio and being creative, but music is more fun when it's being played live!

2) Pogues or Flogging Molly?

The Pogues. FM are great, but I've been listening to the Pogues for much longer so they beat 'em out.

3) Guinness or Kilkenny?

Guinness I suppose. Make mine a Westvleteren 12!

4) Play in smaller clubs or bigger arenas?

I like smaller clubs, because the energy is more palpable and it's easier to lock in with my bandmates because the sound isn't echoing all over a huge arena.

5) Hockey or baseball?

Pfffft! Hockey!!!!!!! Because it's the superior sport!

6) Do Or Die or Signed And Sealed In Blood?

I can't answer that, I played on both. Maybe "Do Or Die", only because it was like playing other peoples' songs. Most of the songs were written before I was in the band and I was a fan.

7) Flatcap or kilt?

Flat(scally) cap, but only in the rain around my neighborhood. I only wear hats when it's absolutely necessary. Never, ever, ever a kilt. The only exception would be if I was in a traditional Scottish wedding.

8) Larry Bird or Bill Russel?

Terry O'Reilly

9) Drums or Bodhrán?

Bodhráns ARE drums. But honestly I'd rather play a drum kit than a bodhrán. I'm no good at that instrument.

10) Irish stew or T-bone steak?

T-bone steak. Irish stew contains lamb or mutton, which I don't particularly enjoy.
