QuoteWhen you get to a certain age and time, you start to realize a lot of things, like how there are hopeless situations.

Punchline did something a bit unorthodox for their backstage sessions: after their set, they sat on the stage and played a couple of acoustic tunes for the remaining audience. In addition to performing their song "Whatever I Want, Whenever I Want," the band's punk alter-egos, The Vipers, took over to play "PMFA." Head to the replies for the videos.

Talk about being at the right moment at the right time. One of my professors required everyone in my class to be on Twitter, although I already had one. During a boring class, I take out my phone to scan the Twit-verse. Lo and behold, I see Good Charlotte is coming to my area. On a whim, I tweet at Joel about what he's doing there and he responds. An impromptu interview is set up with the Madden brothers and what I was able to capture is one of the most sincere and genuine interviews I've ever been a part of. Check the replies to see what I mean.

Fuse will premiere A Different Spin with host Mark Hoppus on Thursday at 7 p.m. EST. Hoppus took some time to talk about the show with us. Our own Christian Wagner went out to a dinner with a few reporters and the stars of the show and has some thoughts on it as well.
QuoteI grew up watching music on television and getting exposed to things, and this is what it's getting back to, a time when we can talk about music and listen to music and listen to an interview a different way than on a different show.
Adam Pfleider on 09/14/10 - 10:05 AM
