I'd argue that Something Corporate should have been bigger than Jack's.
However, from a shitty human being marketer perspective,his leukemia should have been played up a lot more to get Jack's more exposure. The story behind Everything in Transit is as compelling as the music.
I believe it did. They did as much as they could. I mean Andrew got interviewed and performed on "The Daily Show," which doesn't bring a whole lot of musical guests on. The problem was he just couldn't get the momentum from there.
Right, but that is way more the exception than the rule. Even in that case, Gaslight isn't huge, they're just known. And another band that tried to emulate Springsteen, The Killers on "Sam's Town," mostly fell on their face in terms of momentum. Younger fans didn't want to hear their version of "Born To Run."
