Faster Pussycat's Taime Downe Talks About the Future of the Band

Faster Pussycat is currently rolling through town across the US with Bang Tango and L.A. Guns. Jason Price and Steve Johnson of Live-Metal.Net recently spoke to Taime Downe about his beginnings, his current undertakings, and what exactly might lie in store for Faster Pussycat. In a candid interview, Downe talks about new material for the band, a possible autobiography, the possibility of "Rock of Love: Taime Downe"... and even Chinese Democracy. Here are some excerpts:

On Producing:

Live-Metal.Net: You produced the last record, "The Power and The Glory Hole", are you looking to do more producing in the future?

Taime Downe: Yeah! I don't plan on dancing around like a fuckin' monkey man forever, like I said, I'm getting old. [laughs] But I still love music too. I still love playing, so that isn't the case right now but I definitely want to get into doing some work with other bands. I like being in the studio and recording. I like making stuff sound phat as shit in the studio because it's fun when you get something slammin'. It is definitely something that I will be getting more involved with, producing other bands.. Whether it's a track or a whole record.

On the possibility of a Reality Series:

Live-Metal.Net: You're a Hollywood guy, a celebrity with a unique flair and there is this whole "80's Glam Rock Revival" for lack of a better term, going on right now. Have you ever been approached to participate in a reality series?

Taime Downe: I have been approached a couple times before regarding Faster, but I was like "nnnaaaahhhhhhh." I would prefer just to watch them. When I need to be made into an idiot, I'll do it myself. I don't really need anyone to help.
