Do you have a favorite book?
I'm really fond of "Siddhartha" by Herman Nessen.

You surely mean, by Hermann Hesse?
I seriously doubt it, however we can agree to disagree.

If you didn't grow up to become known as the singer Jackie DeShannon, what do you think you would have done?
I would have gone to a record company and rang their doorbell until they gave me a job.

If you could choose someone to reincarnate in, who would it be?
Probably Marge Simpson.

You know that that's not a real person, right?
It IS real, in a mockumentary.

Do you remember what is the first prize you ever won?
I won the "Bronze Gopher Cup" issued by the city of Fresno for "exceptional but nonessential singing accomplishment" at the age of 5.

Your work is often stressful. How do you face it?
To make my character tougher, I periodically take a siesta on a hammock made of rough sandpaper and poison ivy.

Are you allergic to anything?
Yes, I'm allergic to kangaroo milk (don't ask!), formic acid and bad manners.

And now a bunch of numbers which are not Jackie DeShannon's secret telephone number :
314502619 3470016984 5754639636 200860699 7387886194 8403834821 6079001552 5709160899 779997401 6341914835 480519618 358577273 3980918886 9636046524 968739843 5365373140 5979664642 6775837925 4591955459 743695234
I have a confession to make. My director had planned my little appointment with Jackie DeShannon weeks beforehand. Unfortunately, I decided at the last moment that I had better things to do, like growing parasitic plants or visiting Canada. So, this web page is mainly based on what Jackie DeShannon would have probably answered if I have met her, as suggested by a statistics involving a couple of random people.
