What’s in your bag, Jonny Pierce?

“A front man always has to look fresh”, says Jonny Pierce, 37, vocalist of the New York surf-rock band The Drums. To make sure he does, he eats only vegetables when he’s on the road. “I know that doesn’t sound very rock and roll”, he admitted when we spoke with him at Tegel Airport in Berlin. “But you have to live healthily somehow when you’re constantly touring the world.” You can actually hear that freshness on the Drums’ fifth album, Brutalism, and see it as Jonny moves as nimbly as ever on stage.
