Things you always wanted to know about Divine Intervention
Taken from a questionnaire by Matthew Goldberg and Ilya Malinsky for the June 1998 issue of the Lance
Greatest musical influences:
Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles
Dan, Dana, and Erik were out to dinner at Macaroni Grill, and wanted to get a band together. Originally, Dan was on guitar, Dana was on drums, and Erik sang. They decided that they needed a bassist. Erik taught himself to play, and subsequently, the band acquired guitarist, Adam Koss. Soon after, we signed Jordan Bass to take the lead vocal place, but he did not end up having time to make a commitment to the band. Adam Wasserman joined the band as a guitarist and lead singer. He brought Glenn Jacobs on keyboards with him. Adam and Glenn felt themselves going different directions with their music and left the band. Recently, we added Erin Edwards to take over the vocal area. THAT'S Divine Intervention!
Any funny stories?
Adam Wasserman shocked himself numerous times by touching the microphone and his guitar strings at the same time...and liked it!
Dana and Erik have a long break in Stairway to Heaven. During it, Dana went upstairs to make a phone call. Then came back down and played catch with Erik. Dana dove behind the drum-set, Erik grabbed his bass, and they both came in at the right time.
