Fall Out Boy Blender Article

Posted by - 05:14 PM on 01/06/09
Blender's cover story on Fall Out Boy can be read here. Feel free to leave comments to man, myth, legend Joe Trohman in the replies.
From the ArticleNot long ago, lead singer Patrick Stump quit Fall Out Boy. Stump found out that Wentz had made a decision without consulting the band. "Pete isn't a control freak, but he is very controlling. I was fed up. I'd had enough. I said, 'we'll finish this tour, and then I'm f**king gone.'" Eventually they reconciled, but for Wentz, the incident was an eye-opener. "There are some moments where you go, Dude, I've spent the last 28 years of my life as a complete s**t pile.") Guitarist Joe Trohman is also frustrated. "To be labeled a background guy, someone who's just along for the ride it's hard. I started Fall Out Boy, you know? I don't want to sound like I'm bashing anyone, or I'm ungrateful. I'm afraid the guys are gonna read this and wish I'd talked to them first which maybe I should have. But sometimes it doesn't feel like I'm even in the band."

You know, it's interesting reading about a massive band that admits to the same problems that nobody bands can relate to. Somtimes, it's really easy to assume that their level of success would erase any self-doubt or insecurities for the other members...very cool.

I wish Joe would get more attention, because dude is fucking hilarious. He always has the most off the wall and entertaining things to say.

Joe is still my favourite after all these years haha. I don't tend to keep with with FOB articles but from that extract it looks like this could be really interesting, I think I'll give it a go.
