AP.net Interview: The Wonder Years

Posted by: Drew Beringer (11/13/12)
You can check out my interview with Dan "Soupy" Campbell (The Wonder Years) here. We discussed the current Hopeless Records tour, his band's outside-the-box thinking on merch, and what it's like to be someone's hero.
From The InterviewI donít handle it well, thatís for sure. You just try to take it in stride, I guess. Itís like no one looks at themselves as a guy to be looked up to. Iím just a fucking guy. I like professional wrestling and fantasy football and collect Simpsonsí bobbleheads. I like hanging out with my girlfriend and going skateboarding with her. I like sitting in my living room and watching TV shows with my roommates. Weíre not extraordinary people. Weíre just people.

Damn, Dan is such a great guy. It's people like him that a kids should take hints from, not the likes of Ronnie Radke etc.

I definitely agree here. I can't even count how many teenage girls from my high school were completely enamored with Ronnie Radke/Jonny Craig.

Glad to see him booking I Call Fives. That band deserves to breakout. Their self-tittled record is underrated.

Yessir! Do you know if We Are The In Crowd or Sandlot Heroes are good live? I have heard WATIC songs before, but just kind of curious what to expect next week from thos first two bands. I think the Wonder Years are a perfect opener for Yellocard from an energy standpoint.

I like a couple WAITC songs, I'd imagine they'll be pretty good.

I doubt Sandlot Heroes will be good, but we'll see haha I keep forgetting they're playing

Sandlot Heroes was okay. Not a bad band, just not my cup of tea I don't think. WATIC I have never listened to, but they sounded really good live. The girl who sings for them has a great voice.

Funny thing is, I think that answer right there about how it feels to be a hero shows a lot of the reason why people look at him as a hero.

I saw Sandlot Heroes open for Motion City Soundtrack a while ago. They were okay. They played an enjoyable set, it just wasn't anything particularly special.
