i'm friends with these dudes. Aaron gets the claudio thing a lot. it's unintentional, and he wasn't aware of the comparison until a few years ago.
and if all you guys are gonna do is bitch about how crappy you think the music is, why not start up a band and show what you think is better? sorry you're butt hurt that a band with talent is working with some big names and DOING something with music. but either do something constructive or shut the fuck up.
I'm sure they're great guys. I was just stating my opinion on their music (of which I happened to say that they were better than a lot of bands in that genre). I never claimed I could do any better, nor should I have to. Relax.
