Yellowcard's Sean Mackin Talks Band's Hiatus, Touring with Thyroid...

Posted by - 09:28 AM on 01/30/14
A new episode of Dan Campbell's Talking With Soup has been posted, and it features Yellowcard's Sean Mackin revealing details about what he did during the band's hiatus years, the perception that Yellowcard struck it rich off Ocean Avenue, and how he dealt with thyroid cancer while touring. Check it out in the replies and go Broncos.
There was a time in our career where Yellowcard was making a lot of money, but it was a very small amount of time - it was about a year and a half, maybe two years. Over 12 years that ends up averaging out. I was relatively smart with my money, I put some away ... when we took a hiatus I sold cars for three and a half years, and on average, I made more money per year selling cars than I did in the music business.

Crazy to think how much money isn't in music sometimes.

This might be my favorite of the series so far. Sean is one of the best guys I've ever met playing music and there's a lot of great info in this interview.

Can we just talk for a second how awesome it was to see a Talk With Soup-inspired sign on Raw? Believe in the soup.

If you're a fan of Yellowcard, especially Ocean Avenue, and you miss this faux-acoustic tour (there's a second leg now), you're fucking crazy. Easily the best Yellowcard set / performance I've ever seen.

Very enjoyable interview. Sean is a very well-spoken man, wishing him all the best in his fight with cancer.

I dare you to be at a yellowcard show and not get chills when Believe is played. The highlight of the set every night, acoustic or otherwise.
