Morning Glory: IRA ELLIOT

 

IRA ELLIOT is a rock star, first class. He began playing the drums at 11, in his middle-school’s band. Since the mid 90’s he has been the drummer of the internationally acclaimed band Nada Surf. Prior to joining Nada Surf, he played in a number of great bands, perhaps most notably The Fuzztones. He often lends his legendary beat to other musical ventures such as Maplewood and most recently Bambi Kino an ephemeral band formed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Beatles concerts in Hamburg, Germany.

 
WHAT TIME DO YOU WAKE UP?
Typically I get up somewhere between noon and two but I have a funny feeling that will shortly change. (baby in May!)
WHAT DO YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST?
A cup of coffee. And a something bready. Like a madeleine.
ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR MOOD IN THE MORNING?
Grunty.
WHAT GETS YOUR JUICES FLOWING?
Drugs. And listening to music. But drugs mostly.
