The Gaslight Anthem Twitter Chat

Posted by: Jason Tate (04/19/12)
Brian from The Gaslight Anthem will be answering questions on twitter in just a few minutes. I'll do my best to round-up up the answers when it's all over.

Update: Looks like that's it ... too many tweets!

Hahaha "neither I'm a patriot" he's the fucking man. Brian Fallon and Ace Enders are my favorite songwriters I've heard so far. I haven't heard anything that I didn't like from either parties...yet.. highly doubt that'll happen though!

Glad someone asked, and he answered, the Maria question. Always wondered.

How did he tweet that he did too many tweets?

Scratch that. Saw that they were answering tweets on the band account.
