Living Reuse (Quick Interviews): 311 Bassist, Aaron “P-Nut” Wills

This interview series features the same 4 questions to a variety of noteworthy people and a fifth question, specific for them.

P-Nut - Chico, CA 2010Most people know Aaron “P-Nut” Wills as the bass slapping, Los Angeles Lakers loving, funny face making bassist of the band 311. But while touring with the band selling their merchandise and in the years that have passed, I’ve come to know a different P-Nut; a compassionate person who cares about his family, his friends, his fans, and yes, his planet.

P-Nut was the first person that I know to get a Tesla, one of the earliest electric cars. He taught me the genius of the French Press coffee making style where there’s no need for disposable filters. And as you will see below, he is a fan of reusing.

While P-Nut will surely be busy with 311 for years to come, I’m hoping we can collaborate on one of the many reuse ideas that I have. Until then, I recommend following him on twitter, where he’s always spreading the positivity.


1. What’s the best thing that you ever got used?
My ’64 fender jazz L series bass.

2. What’s the last thing that you took out of the recycling or trash to reuse somehow?
A box to destroy with my son.

Coffee:  I’ve had my handmade ceramic mug for years, but I use it for a bowl too.  Keeps me connected to home to have a piece with me.

4. How could YOU reuse a cereal box in your daily life?
Make it into a canvas for an unreal piece of art.
