Describe your style:
Low-maintenance—sometimes I call it my uniform. I love tight Dickies jeans, and if it’s hot enough in the city for shorts, they’ll be very short cut-offs with knee-high Stance socks with a plain black tank top or band tee. And I always have a black Thrasher, Antihero, or Spitfire sweatshirt handy.   When I'm playing the drums on tour, my uniform consists of a lot of torn-up fishnets with shorts or leggings—I just got a pair of American flag print leggings—and usually a see-through top or no top at all. All bra.  
Latest obsession: 

I’m finally turning into a woman and loving jewelry. I recently got a pair of very long gold stick earrings and a necklace with a big gold Thunderbird pendant from Mira Mira in San Francisco. I also bought a long necklace with a cat’s jawbone and crystals from a punker chick on the street in New Orleans. Sounds creepy, but what do you expect? It’s NOLA!

Any beauty secrets? 

After a rough night out, I wake up and run cotton makeup pads under cold water and put them over my eyes. It helps restore the hydration that you took out from the night before, and reduces puffiness. Doing that with Derma E Hydrating Mask with Hyaluronic Acid has worked best. I also just got into a brand called Juice Beauty that’s power packed with antioxidants and Vitamin C. And always, always use sunscreen. My favorite so far has been Skinceuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50 with the universal tint.

Your saved eBay search words: 

All of my saved eBay words lead to vintage toys for my four-year-old son. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Popples…remember those? For myself, vintage 49ers gear and vintage Giants gear.

Who is your style icon? 

I love Tina Turner‘s short sassy dresses. She pushed the limits and was so good at it. Also Joan Jett—simple. Tight. Black. Leather. Got it. Last but not least, Wendy O. Williams. Straight attitude.

Next on your must-buy list: 

I don’t wear dresses as often as I should. I just got a little black dress from Guess, which I love. My other go-to dress is a lightweight and tight yet comfortable one from XTaren that I got in San Francisco at a shop called BellJar.

Favorite eBay find ever: 

A 1982 reversible 49ers Starter jacket. It was in mint condition.

You collect…

Magnets for every place I’ve traveled to. May sound boring, but I don’t have a lot of time to shop when I’m on the road, so if I forget to get something, the airports and gas stations always have magnets.

What’s at the top of your wish list? 

Today…? A hot tub. Can we get those on eBay?

What’s the eBay item that got away? 

A Scorpions t-shirt about ten years ago. It was a baseball t-shirt with white sleeves. I still think about it.

Whose closet would you raid? 

Raiding Lady Gaga‘s closet before I play a gig would be pretty epic.

Guilty pleasure: 

White wine. Does that make me sound like a housewife?

Dream getaway: 

New Zealand. I know there are some hot springs somewhere in that country.

Favorite gift you ever gave:

When I’m around family, I take a lot of pictures with my Nikon D40 and a Canon PowerShot S95. I make 50+ page books from the photos I take and send them to everyone. It’s pretty time-consuming, but the finished product is always so worth it. My family always pressures me every year for the next one. I love being able to capture those moments and put them into a story.

What you wish would show up on eBay: 

That hot tub I’ve been wanting. Or international first class tickets to nowhere.

Song most played on your iPod: 

This month, it’s been “Institutionalized” by Suicidal Tendencies.I’m practicing the drum part right now.

Favorite city to shop in: 

San Francisco!
