El Monstero Trivia
El Monstero, Kevin Gagnepain, cites Pink Floyd's, Animals (1977), as his favorite Pink Floyd album. He also added, "Before
El Monstero, I loved The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), the most from top to bottom. When I was in Stir and touring, that was
something I listened to a lot. While I was in the van, it was a great way to chill and fall asleep. But after listening to
Animals from a different place, it's a little more interesting." In the same interview with stltoday.com, Gagnepain said his
favorite Pink Floyd musician is "My counterpart, I guess, Roger Waters. He was the lyricist in the band. He was the visionary
of the band. I also loved David Gilmour's voice and his guitar playing."
