The Lemonheads frontman's last wishes

How would you spend your last day alive? The Lemonheads’ Evan Dando will be falling out of the sky...

Where would you like to wake up?

Somewhere I’ve never been before. I’ve never been to Nepal; I’d like to go there.

What would you like to achieve on your last day?

There aren’t many things. What the hell did I not do? I’ve never been in a plane crash. That’s how I’d like to die.

Are you flying in Nepal?

No. I’m on my way to Newark, New Jersey.

Who would be at your final dinner?

It would be the typical coach food you get.

The chicken or beef dish?


What would be your biggest regret?

I don’t think that way too much. My biggest regret would be that I hadn’t had kids.

What is the last song you want to hear?

‘Lights Are Changing’ is pretty darn good. It’s by The Bevis Frond, an English band.

What would your deathbed confession be?

Hmmm... I’m trying to think of the worst thing I’ve done that I’ve never told anybody. I’m really kinda open about stuff like that. Well, I had a tennis racket when I was about ten or eleven, and I used to hit rocks out onto the highway a lot, and sometimes there would be little fender benders. That would be it.

What would your final words be?

“It is.”

What would you have written on your gravestone?

‘I knew if I hung around here long enough this would happen.’

Who would you like to meet at the pearly gates of Heaven?

I am very fond of this really great girl in Australia that I just thought was a really good soul called Alison Galloway. She’d be a good person to have greet me.

Describe your vision of Heaven.

Just basically like TV static, I guess. White noise.

If you could be resurrected the next day then what would you come back as?

A Massachusetts US Senator. Because I want to get things done. I want to legislate.
