Hanson has always been one of my guilty pleasures. In fact, I saw them in concert a few summers ago. I’ve always loved Taylor – Hanson’s lead singer and oh-so-dreamy middle brother, and still keep up on my Hanson news. A few months ago, Hanson visited Boston and played a concert at Showcase Live and then walked a mile, barefoot, to benefit HIV/AIDS research.
When my friend Scott emailed me the other day asking if I had heard the news about “my boy” Taylor, I was surprised that I had not. (I just figured he’d fathered another child.) He sent me an article about Taylor’s new endeavor – lead singer of the newest super group “Tinted Windows.”
Taylor joins James Iha – formerly of the Smashing Pumpkins; Adam Schlesinger – formerly of Fountains of Wayne; and Bun E. Carlos – formerly of Cheap Trick. The band performed at the South by Southwest Music Festival in Texas in mid-March and will make their first national appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 20 – the night before their album releases. Set your DVRs girls!!!
I’m not a big fan of this new group (their music is so not my style), but I could listen to and watch Taylor Hanson sing for hours. He’s dreamy. Check out a video of the band performing on Yahoo’s Music Blog.
PS – What’s “Rock After Dark” and what TV station/website is airing this crap? I could host that show while drunk and do a better job than Godwin Alexander.
