When he's not hunting down ghosts around town, it sounds like our favorite local tour guide/paranormal investigator Joshua P. Warren, is busy hunting down MP3s. But his music taste may surprise you (Insane Clown Posse?!). Check out his answers below, and be sure to swing by his bizarre new "Free Museum" — located in the old jail and gallows building behind Pack's Tavern — for some creepy and kitschy Asheville history.
Hey Joshua P. Warren, what’s your spin?
Listening to now: I've been listening to Asheville artist Jar-E. I'm spoiled by downloading various songs off the net.
Most recent album/song bought: You mean people still buy albums? I recently bought a Muse CD and The Beatles ever-classic Abbey Road.
Most recent concert attended: I don't go to concerts that often. The most recent was Unknown Hinson last year. I love that weird, underground vibe that swirls around indie artists who can get a room of drunks hopping.
First concert ever attended: My first major concert was Billy Joel/Elton John. About 60,000 people packed a stadium in South Carolina. It was an amazing time with mind-boggling musicians — swaying on a crest of euphoria.
Favorite local/regional act: I love Jar-E and Nova Echo. They are rocketing upward. And Runners of the Green Laurel is some barn-stomping bluegrass that makes your head spin.
Favorite band/artist of all time: God, this is hard one. But I'll go with Billy Joel.
Guilty pleasures: I love me some Dr. Dre, ICP and lots of filthy, fast-paced pump tracks.
