This Wednesday at 7 PM EST, manager extraordinaire Randy Nichols will be chatting on AP.net. As the manager for The Starting Line, The Almost, Aaron Sprinkle, UnderOath, Person L and more, he has seen quite a bit of the music business. We thought this would be a great opportunity for young bands to learn what makes a good manager, what makes a bad one, and for aspiring managers to better understand what it means to manage a band. So make sure to check back here on Wednesday at 7 PM EST.
Do you think The Starting Line's Based on A True Story is a sophomore slump or comeback of the year? We've pitted two staff members against each other to debate its merits on whether it will live on as a worthy successor or fall into the dreaded sophomore slump category. Read the justification for each in the replies and feel free to post your own thoughts.
A music video for The Starting Line's "Something Left To Give" has been compiled from footage off their new DVD Somebody's Gonna Miss Us, and we've got the exlusive video premiere in the replies. Check it out and let us know if you need a tissue. DVD available for pre-order here.
Head to the replies to check out the trailer for The Starting Line live CD/DVD Somebody's Gonna Miss Us. AP.net will be posting a series of clips leading up to the November 10th release.

The band's newest projects will all be hanging there (Person L, Cheap Seats, The Traded Series).
West Coast, you can still wish Ken Vasoli (Person L, The Starting Line) a happy birthday in this thread and not be late and embarrassed like the East Coast folks. He is 25 years old as of May 20, 2009.
Update: The chat is now over. Well Kenneth it has been a pleasure. We've covered a lot of ground, shared a few laughs; thanks for coming on! He's a good kid. Everyone else, be sure to check out Person L!
Kenny Vasoli will be chatting in this thread at approximately 9 p.m. ET. Come on in and find out about the upcoming Person L tour, beg and plead for news on The Starting Line, or just say hello. Kenny said no topic is off limits, so go nuts. Yo, sup k-murda?
