Jesus freak Hideout: Why the name, "Room Full of Walters?"
The name "The Beatles" was taken.
JFH: How did the band get started?
Mark: The usual, this guy knows that guy, who knows this other guy...
JFH: How would you describe your sound?
Mark: Walternative Rock or Very Heavy Pop.
JFH: What bands have influenced your sound?
Mark: The Beatles, Cheap Trick and everything between.
JFH: What is the song "Pete's a Rocket Scientist" about?
Mark: Feeling like an outsider.
JFH: What inspired the song, "Jeffrey Dahmer Went to Heaven?"
An interview on Dateline NBC where J.D. claimed to have accepted Christ. It
got Kurt (who was the primary writer of that song) thinking about grace.
Specifically the notion that NOTHING can separate you from God's grace.
JFH: What is the meaning of the song "Face?"
Mark: It means that through all of the chaos and confusion of life, when it's time
to go, I hope that I have left behind a standing stone.
JFH: What is your favorite RFOW song?
Mark: Probably "Home." It is
about the feeling when you've had a period where you didn't feel very strong
in your walk and you've just gotten back on track.
JFH: What is your favorite Bible verse?
Mark: Anything in Matthew.
JFH: What is your favorite movie?
Mark: It changes frequently. Right now, I'd have to say "Raising Arizona."
JFH: Do you prefer Mountain Dew or Surge?
Mark: Dew all the way, baby!
JFH: What does the future hold in store for the Room Full of Walters? Any
new album plans?
Mark: Yes, we are just finishing tracking the new one. No title... yet. We did it
in the same studio and with the same engineer as "Sleepy-head," If it ain't
broke, don't fix it!
JFH: Recently you experienced a tragic accident on the highway while helping
out a person in need. Please briefly tell what happened and what you learned
Mark: It was icy.
There was an accident in front of us. We pulled over to see if everyone was
OK. While we were doing that, someone nailed us from behind. It totaled our
trailer, smashed up the van and did relatively minor damage to the
equipment. I really have no clue in what God was trying to show us except
that the car that hit us would have most likely hit the cars that we were
checking on (and those people were already in trouble).
JFH: The Jesus freak Hideout site was started out of appreciation for good
Christian music. We've set a goal to try to use the site to spread
Christian music, as well as God's Word, & show others how great Christian
music can be. Do you listen to Christian music? If so, what bands?
Mark: Whatever is on the radio, really. I like Kosmos Express, 7 Day Jesus...
JFH: I really appreciate you taking out the time in your busy schedule to
answer some questions for us. Are there any last comments you'd like to make?
Mark: Stay in school and study hard! Ha! Give your life to God and
everything will begin to fall into place. Peace.
