This question presupposes that he has to be one or the other...philosophically speaking, isn't he both?

#23     Salmeen =D *18* Texas
salmeen is by no means satisfied
1) Why do you admire Burleigh so?
He's one heck of a keyboardist and glockenspiel player.  Also the tambourine dance is rocktastic to the 7th limit.  Plain and simple.

Twice and hopefully many more times.

2 words-Tambourine dance

5) Describe your own personal expierence with the dude:
Well at the last show I went to he took a picture with 2 of my friends and me and he was very sweet!  I didn't really get to talk to him though.  Also during an OK Go acoustic set he played the glockenspiel and pill bottle.  "My only weakness."-Burleigh on Zyrtec.  Hehehe!
6) Is he IN the band, or is he just that guy?
I'd say he's in the band for the most part.

I admire Burleigh so because he does that awesome tambourine dance. This is only one of many reasons.

Unfortunately, I've only seen Burleigh do his thang once. However, hopefully this will change in the near future.
3) What is your favorite Burleigh dance move?
My favourite Burleigh dance move is this one with the drumsticks where his back is facing the audience and....agh, i can't describe it, and no one ever knows what i'm talking about, so i'll give up. that one or the tambourine dance.
4) How do you love Burleigh? Please count the ways:
I love Burleigh because he hung out with me and was jealous of Damian, even though he didn't say so, because we all know Damian gets all the love, which isn't fair. This counts for... 4.67 ways

My personal experience with Burleigh: I found him all by himself after the show, and he kept telling me to check out his "questions for burleigh" thread on the messageboard. we talked, it was fun, good times were had by all. he's a very cool guy.
6) Is he IN the band, or is he just that guy?
oh, he's totally in the band. no argument.

Wow...this could take a novel. I guess the best one was eating tex mex with Burleigh in Austin before their show with the Donnas. Or the next morning have the "top of the morning" conversation with Mr. B. Or just the settle glances one exchanges with Mr. B while in the crowd and Mr. B is onstage. Okay, I could keep going but I'm going to stop...NOW!

Def..Def...DEFINITELY in the band. He's definitely in the band.

#28     Shannon, Tulsa
shannon is a funkmeister at heart
1) Why do you admire Burleigh so?
Okay, I havent read much into your website, but I had no idea who he was when I went to the OK GO show for the first time, but all of a sudden I see these tight ass pants on some dude jumpin around playing the tamborine. I was just kind of in shock and awe at the same time. Had to meet that guy after the show, ever since then, when I hear the name, BURLEIGH, a tight ass comes to mind.
2) How many times have you seen Burleigh do his thang?
Once, which wasnt enough.

When he is jumpin strait up and down kinda shakin his butt from side to side.
4) How do you love Burleigh? Please count the ways:

The music we hear wouldn't be brought to us as amazing as it is unless he was a part of the making. :)

#29     Brandi *20* Missouri
brandi is probably the most versatile of the lady 'birds
1) Why do you admire Burleigh so?
Because of his mean keyboard playin' and
off the wall tambourine dance, it always brings a smile to my face!

2) How many times have you seen Burleigh do his thang?
Three
3) What is your favorite Burleigh dance move?
The ENTIRE tambourine dance is
priceless...I can't pick just ONE specific move.
4) How do you love Burleigh? Please count the ways:
his laugh/giggle, the
tambourine dance, his story of his pet peeve [heheh the fish tank & the fat
family], and SOOO much more that the list could go on forever :)
5) Describe your own personal experience with the dude:
The first time I saw Ok Go [12.16.02], my friend Melissa & I had a bet with each other on how each of the Ok Go guys would respond to our question of "do you say SODA or
POP" because we've had a "feud" going on about this for about 4 years. I say
SODA [the right way!] and she says POP. We asked Burleigh first and he said
SODA :) Also, the 3rd time I seen the guys [02.19.03], we were trying to
track Andy down and my friends and I ran back and forth by Burleigh about
twice [this was AFTER we had talked to him and finally seen Andy], he
laughed at us because we looked as if we were chasing Andy around the venue,
hehehehe.

6) Is he IN the band, or is he just that guy?
he's IN the band

#30     Amy
1) Why do you admire Burleigh so?
Because he's the mysterious 5th member who came out of nowhere and stole the show with his multi-talented keyboard and tambourine abilities...no one since Davy Jones has been been able to shake a tambourine with such rawness and wild rock n roll sex appeal as Mr. B!
2) How many times have you seen Burleigh do his thang?
I have had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Burleigh, but unfortunately, the show I waited months to see, was cancelled, due to Damian being ill. (Richmond, VA 2/4/03) ...but I just know someday, soon, I will be able to experience Burleigh doing his thang live, on stage!
3) What is your favorite Burleigh dance move?
4) How do you love Burleigh? Please count the ways:
I love Burleigh with every little Burleigh giggle!
B - Burleigh-esque giggles!
U - Untamed tambourine and keyboard passion!
R - Raw Rock n Roll Vigor
L - Loveable smile
E - Exciting charm
I  - Intense Eyes
G - Great Talent
H - Hillarious
5) Describe your own personal expierence with the dude:
I met Burleigh at Plan 9 Records, here in Richmond, VA. He was very kind and explained that I should try to get tickets to the D.C. show, for the next night, if I thought I could go, since they were close to selling out. He also told me about some of the new merchandise that we'll have soon at their official site...he was very sweet and kind, as always!
6) Is he IN the band, or is he just that guy?
Well, for a little while I thought he was the 'mysterious 5th member', hehe, but he's most definately IN the band, no doubt about it!
