Wayne "Wing" Sermon of Imagine Dragons on Being a Mormon Rock Star

Even though Imagine Dragons have been playing music for a little over four years, the band's meteoric rise to the top of the charts seems to have occurred over a much shorter time. Hailing from Las Vegas, the band plays unapologetically play infectious, radio-friendly alternative rock.

From a tour stop in Sante Fe and in anticipation of shows Friday and Saturday night at the South Side Ballroom, guitarist Wayne "Wing" Sermon was kind enough to talk to DC9 about how his Mormon faith jibes with the rock and roll lifestyle, and the reasons behind his band's relatively quick path to success.
