SSM: Can you state your name and what you do in the band?
Scott: Scott Waldman. I sing and play guitar.
SSM: How did the lineup come to be?
Scott: The lineup is not permanent yet. I am currently the only "official" member of LIDO BEACH but I am looking to change that soon. I've known Scott Seader (lead guitar) for 22 years, I've lived in a van with Brian Weber for one month, I've had Souplantation and Indian food with Jason Young at least once a week for the past year and Adam Miller's family knows how to cook amazing food!
SSM:What are some of the bands’ influences?
Scott: Here are seven: The Beatles, Nirvana, Silverchair, Jimmy Eat World,The Who, Weezer and Kara's Flowers!
SSM:After only a few days of putting up the myspace, you have a street team formed for the band. What was that like to first see it? Anything else a fan has said or done that you think deserves mention?
Scott:BEYOND THRILLING. Every ounce of support from every person who has even HEARD of LIDO BEACH has made each day better and better. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
SSM:When you do get around to recording an album, are you going to put all new songs on it or re-record some of the ones that are on your myspace?
Scott:The songs on our myspace are ALL really raw and old. We definitely plan on re-recording ALL of them soon. Some will be acoustic but most will be FULL BAND! Get excited.
SSM:You posted a blog on your page about a cause that helps people with cancer. People can check that out here:
Scott: People should get involved with this for obvious reasons. My friend Emily Herman is an amazing gal. Check out her page!
