1. Is Christ Killer satanic?

Coyote was raised Catholic and has so much respect for Christ that he is uncomfortable with the bloody figurines of Jesus on the cross.


2. So Coyote is allergic to crosses?

Only when inserted into the chest.


3. How do Buddhists get into Heaven?

With nothing.


4. If Coyote's so smart, why is he a Buddhist?

Our poetic hippie says that when he found out what Buddhism was about -- he realized he was already a Buddhist. Coyote claims that Buddhism requires you to be smart, or it doesn't work.


5. Is American Zen the first Buddhist rock band in America?

We've been making that claim since 1991 and no one has disagreed yet.

Somebody's got to be -- and we don't know of anyone better.
