Re: Scott Lucas & The Married Men

I didn’t want this to be buried in the comments of the Scott Lucas interview posted earlier this morning.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much this cracks me up. Scott did an interview with the A/V Club website. The interviewer was asking Scott his thoughts on other musicians who decided to take the solo route and Nick Jonas was brought up. Scott doesn’t know the Jonas Bros (and, seriously, why should he?) and said as much. As you might imagine, the Jonas Bros have a LOT of fans who aren’t taking very kindly to this “nobody from a grunge band that ISN’T Nirvana” picking on their idol.

    Why shouldn’t these fans complain. The Jonas Brothers are extremely well known. The problem is people who are biased against anyone who is young, talented and sings with their family. If these people would actually listen to their music, they’d find it’s good. As someone who has listened to a lot of musical acts in the last four decades, I’m going with the Jonas Brothers fans on this one. Some who is a “nobody from a grunge band that ISN’T Nirvana” shouldn’t be casting any stones.

    i think the livejournal community speaks for all of us when they say “scott lucas should compare his wikipedia page to nick jonas’, and then sit the fuck down.”

    But if only he’d left it at not knowing who they were…but he went and sounded all bitter. Embarrassing.

    … keep it copacetic, Andrew.

    Keegan, someday you’ll understand. I’m sure there are millions of people who now regret buying Hanson cassettes back in the day.

    I saw that article too yesterday. My main reaction was that it’s an interesting way to get some attention. Some potential downside from all the vitriol that it’s sure to spawn (Nick Jonas is hardly the only one who he skewers in the interview), but pretty funny. By the way, they did a great show last night in Columbus.
