UCR: You detail in your book how, when they went on the road without you in 2005, things didnít go well. Eventually Pete Angelus, the band's manager at that time, is on the phone with you, working things out to get you back with the band. Now, is there in your mind any deal that could be struck that would get you to climb back behind the kit with the band?
Gorman: Not that I can imagine, and I have a really active imagination. So I would say no. And the truth is this, I have absolutely no interest in being in a room with either one of those guys, much less onstage with them for a year and a half. I have worked my ass off to make sure that I was never in a position where I thought I might have to do this. So, I mean, thereís that. I donít need it. The reality is, if they did call me and if they did call Johnny [Colt] and if they did call Marc Ford or if they called Sven [Pipien], what are the chances that band is ever as good as it once was? I would say nil. So thereís pragmatic considerations, and I donít need that. And then on top of it, once you really do get down to the music of it, if this were about music, those phone calls would have been made. Itís not about music. It is what it is. I mean, if I wanted to go see some soccer games in Europe and the tour made sense for me, okay, maybe. [Laughs] You know what I mean? Iíd be looking at it for things like that. Do I want to go play a bunch of festivals next summer? Well, no, not really. Iím not missing that on any level. And again, musically speaking, this Trigger Hippy album, Iím not one to say that this is the best thing ever, but I am as proud of this record and I love this record as much as anything Iíve ever done. So my musical jones is more than sated with Trigger Hippy.
