Life at a Red Roof Inn ain't easy...as we well know
HC:: What is that lifestyle like, bouncing from one motel to the next?
BF: It's rough! It's for kids, man.
Robert Sledge: Once you get past a certain age, you're just sort of degrading physically. You cannot sleep on a floor and get two nights' sleep and then go rock the house. It's just not gonna happen. When I was younger, I used to make fun of old people who had to have comfortable beds. Now, I totally understand.
HC:: What did you graduate to after Knights Inn?
BF: Red Roof Inn and Howard Johnson. The reason we liked HoJos is that they never charged for anything extra, like internet. And they were usually fairly close to airports. So, yeah, HoJos were the next step up.
HC:: Of the many, many places you've stayed, are there any hotels that stand out?
RS: The Columbia Hotel in London was always amazing for me just because of the sheer scale of the place. It's a rock and roll hotel.
BF: The rooms are teeny and kinda gnarly but it was an interesting place. I remember Liam Gallagher getting kicked out for fighting one night.
RS: One time, at 3am when I desperately needed sleep and I was totally jet lagged, the night clerk opened the door to my room. He stepped onto the foot of my bed, went above my head and changed the fuse. He said, 'Pardon me sir, good night sir.' That actually happened. I was totally freaked out the next day when I realized that it wasn't a dream.
