  1. Omg, that is horrible! He was so young! RIP
  2. Ohh, was it recently? You should have went! They are seriously amazing! They were never really "teeny boppers", they just kind of got lumped into that category since they came out during a period when boy bands and pop music were huge. They're really a great rock band and always have been.
  3. Ohh, I'm on the Hanson forums too lol. Zeppelin is my favorite band as well but...it's different. Hanson is from my generation so...I have more of a connection with them I guess?
  4. "Mmmbop"? Yeah, it's very catchy lol. And you're right about Bob Weir, I know he's a fan of them. Hanson joined him on stage at one of his shows. They have alot of great musicians who are fans of them. Jonny Lang, Rose Stone, John Popper and Carole King have all worked with them on some of their albums. They're good friends with Leon Russell. Bono actually called their music genius. And I know Nikki Sixx from Motley Crue has said that he has alot of respect for them, as well as Scott Ian from Anthrax. Oh, and Les Paul was very impressed with them when they played for him
  5. I'm 17, been a fan since I was about 11.
  6. Jonny Lang is great, he played on Hanson's album "This Time Around."
  7. (No, they didn't die. No, they're not gay. Yes, they looked like girls 10 years ago.) Hanson is my favorite band. I got into them a few years ago and they are amazing. I admit that I used to make fun of them before I discovered them but they aren't a joke. They write their own music and play their own instruments and are incredibly talented. It's sad that they do not get the respect that they deserve because people still remember them from the "Mmmbop" days with their high pitched voices and feminine looks. People couldn't look past their appearance to see the true talent behind the band. Now, over 10 years later, people still won't give them a chance. Here's some background info. During the process of making their third album "Underneath", they were having many problems with their label. Their songs were constantly getting rejected so they ended their contract, became independant and started their own label, "3CG Records." They made a documentary of their struggle called "Strong Enough to Break" that is available to download for free on iTunes (Underneath debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Independant Albums chart and #25 on the Billboard 200 album chart, making it one of the most successful self-released albums of all time). Their latest album "The Walk" was released last year. During the making of this album, they became very involved in efforts to end extreme poverty and AIDS in Africa. They released a charity single called "Great Divide" in which all proceeds from the song went directly to a hospital in Soweto, South Africa. They also have a book available called "Take the Walk" which discusses the story behind their inspiration to help fight poverty and AIDS in Africa. There is also a 5 song EP to go along with the book and the sale of each book will raise funds to benefit the 5 causes on a website they began called takethewalk.net. You can listen to a sample of each of the songs on the EP by launching the media player in the upper right corner of the homepage on their website, hanson.net. I'm not saying that everyone should be a Hanson fan. If you don't like them that's fine, but all I ask is that you listen to them before you judge them! They are most likely not what you'd expect them to be. Here's the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcifAzv8-bU. It's a great song and a little reminiscent of "Kashmir"
