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.”
