Exclusive: Before You Exit’s Connor McDonough Plays ‘Would You Rather?’

Before You Exit are wrapping up their tour with Christina Grimmie, as they were out on the road in support of their latest EP All The Lights. We had the chance to sit down with Connor McDonough to play a quick game of ‘Would You Rather?’

Find out why Connor prefers drumsticks for hands, and what famous musician he would like to hang with — and read our full interview on Before You Exit’s big 2016.

Would you rather be really late for a show, or mess up onstage? 

Mess up onstage, because I wouldn’t want to let anyone down in the crowd by being late. I’d rather let myself down and get over it [laughs]. Hopefully the fans wouldn’t notice it!

Would you rather be in the studio or on tour?                   

I like both equally honestly, I can’t even pick. When you’re on tour you want to be in the studio and when you’re in the studio, you want to be on tour. They’re both equal for sure.

Massive bank account, or a massive fanbase?

A massive fanbase, no doubt. Sure, money helps support us, but honestly I would rather have a community of people that we can share our music with and communicate with like family.

Would you rather have an accordion for legs or drumsticks for hands?

Oh my gosh [laughs]. Drumsticks for hands, just so I could play the drums all the time.

Would you rather have lunch with a music icon who has passed on or a music icon who is currently alive?  

Probably Michael Jackson just because he’s a legend and somebody that I feel like will always be known for decades and decades to come.  He was someone we got into late but we always listened to the Jackson 5 when we were younger and Michael Jackson as we progressively got older. We didn’t really realize the significance of him until I was a teenager but he would be my number one pick.
