Exclusive Video: Hanson Answer Fan Questions On Fighting, Touring
uInterview sat down with the band Hanson to ask your questions as they head out on their new tour.
Zac: Josh, I know you probably read People magazine and heard about the man who had a baby. But I didn’t have a baby. My wife had a baby [laughs] … It’s incredible. It’s life changing. But definitely something people should not be afraid of. I when we told people, they said. ‘You’re so young, it’s going to change things.' I don’t think it should be something that people are as afraid.”
Taylor: Karen, it's funny with the solo project idea has come up throughout our career. It probably comes up with lots of bands. I think especially because we all sing, we all writeâ
Zac: Josh, I know this is hard to believe because you probably read People magazine and heard about the man who had a baby. But I actually didn't have a baby. My wife had a baby [laughs] The man who has the baby is probably a woman who had a sex change - awkward. We did just have a baby, my wife and I. It's incredible. It's life changing. But definitely something people should not be afraid of. When we first told people, I'm 22, they said. 'You're so young, it's going to change things.' Though it changes your life, I don't think it should be something that people are as afraid.
Zac: I just want to say hi Steve, it's good to see you again. It's been a while. Last time I saw you we were kind of party, place. You know.
Issac: Zac, that might have been a different Steve.
Zac: There's only one Steve, trust me... When we decided to start our own label, it was definitely a big decision and definitely signing on to take hold of things in a different way than we've ever had been. We've always been very involved in everything we do. From merchandise to our work, to the way the albums are releasedâ
A: Zac: Steve, this is so like you to ask more than one question. You are such a hog. I mean at that party, I think you drank all the booze, I didn't get anyâ
A: Issac: Well Tanya, success at an early age can potentially be very dangerous for some. I would say in some ways, itâ
Taylor: Tanya, that's a hard question to answer. I mean, one of the things that's interesting about being in a band with your brothers is people that are not brothers say we're like brothers...
Issac: Like in a positive way...
Taylor: Yeah, and people that are brothers are likeâ
Taylor: Hey Amy, thanks for your question. Part of our story with this whole record is that we recorded an African Children Choir in Molenbeek and in South Africa and really recognizing our ability to make an impact on the issues in Africa with tangible actions, with our music, with our influences and things around us. And that inspired us to do the walks, which we do at all our shows, the 1 miles barefoot walks. Last fall, our goal was to help Tom's Shoes, which is a really cool shoe company, and was to help them to give thousands of shoes to kids in Africa by selling shoes. They donate a pair every time you buy one.
