vnycius says to WesleyBR (18:09): hey Brad, what's up?! So, tell me, what have you been listening to? Right now what are your favorite bands? And do you like any Brazilian music? Bands, songs? I know Hahn enjoys capoeira, and all you guys like sepultura... but, anything else?
bigbadbrad says to (18:11): I don't have one favorite album in particular, but I really like OK Computer , Bob Marley's "Legend", "The Joshua Tree" and Weezer's "Blue Album."
bigbadbrad says to (18:13): Right now, I like Editors, The National, and Death Cab for Cutie.
Westi says to (18:12): Brad! what was your favourite show on the UK tour and why?
bigbadbrad says to (18:14): I really enjoyed all our shows in the UK, but I particularly liked The O2 because I had heard a lot about it.
wesleyhahn says to WesleyBR (18:13): Brad, do you think about working again with some old-school songs, maybe some never played live before, like Part of me, Carousel... or maybe even 'revive' some old ones like High Voltage and And One? If you do, can we wait for it soon? Lots of fans love
bigbadbrad says to (18:16): Wow, that's really old school. I can't promise any of those, but we have brought some oldies - but goodies - back into the sets.
wanju says to (18:13): What do you like to do during touring?
bigbadbrad says to (18:16): Play great shows, work out, and get a lot of rest.
yourlilgoddess says to (18:17): BRAD! Where do you get the inspiration to write music and the energy to perform night after night? -- Your 1st make a wish kid, Chelsey....see you in 10 days!!! =)
bigbadbrad says to (18:19): I love making music, particularly writing new songs, so that's always been fun for me. And playing shows is a great opportunity to showcase the music that we create.
Yukiru says to (18:17): Hey brad hope ure fine n not too tired, my question is which of ur guitars is ur fav and would u if u had the time, show a fan who asked for it how to play some cool riffs etc and possibly give one of ur guitars away(to a fan)?
bigbadbrad says to (18:20): Probably my red PRS. And your best bet for riffs is YouTube or your local guitar teacher.
YUNA says to BumbleBee (18:18): Hi Brad ! First of all, i'd like to thank you for coming in Montreal again !!! and my question is : I'd like to know what is the Best Halloween costume you've ever worn, if any?"

Arti_Bennoda says to (18:21): Sup, Big Bad! I was wondering, what was your most embarrassing moment with the band?
ARTES says to (18:22): Hi Brad. Lots of fans always ask when will you come to their country. Can you explain once and for all who picks the countries you go to on tour and what affects your choise? Does that include the amount of LPU members or albums sold in that country?

bigbadbrad says to (18:28): A lot more songs to choose from, which enables us to perform unique sets of music each night.
Blak_Rabbit says to (18:26): Hey Brad, If the band were to have ideas for another album, would you guys record in a similar work space again or go back to a studio setting like NRG?
bigbadbrad says to (18:29): Working in a non-traditional studio environment really helped us to push our musical boundaries creatively.

Doggie24690 says to (18:32): Hey Brad, I was wondering if there was any significance of how many tracks you guys put on an album. Is it label related or just a comfortable number for you and the guys?
bigbadbrad says to (18:35): Yes. For each album, we always choose the perfect number of tracks. Also, if you add up all the tracks on all our albums and divide that number by 5, you will have a much smaller number.
bigbadbrad says to (18:33): Hilary Clinton.
[Note: not sure which question this answer is for, bernabrook maybe?]

bigbadbrad says to (18:38): That's a great question. We shouldn't rule it out. As I predicted, this was another display of awesomeness that has come to be known as the LPU Chat. For those of you whose questions I did not get to, do the following:
