MIKE LUST, 36, Logan Square
Known for his high kicks and high jinks as singer-guitarist of hyperenergy noiseniks Tight Phantomz, Lust was initiated into the world of rock & roll at age three, when he saw KISS on The Paul Lynde Halloween Special. Lust also runs West Side studio Phantom Manor, where he has recorded bands such as Urge Overkill. His wish list includes some great gift ideas for himself—or your favorite music nerd or musician.
My favorite budget-friendly stocking stuffer is…a Mojo or Spin magazine, $10 and $5 at Barnes & Noble. “Reading magazines is a great way to keep me occupied during down time at the studio.”
If you have to get a gift certificate, get it from…Amazon.com. “I can no doubt find every single thing on my list on Amazon.”
Please don’t get me any more…KISS-related merchandise. “My family has been giving me KISS stuff for years…I’m over it!”
