These luncheons are a great way to have an intimate setting with various celebrities and rock stars to learn things about them that you may not have known. When Fall Out Boy came in I was little disappointed with the whole experience.
While the bulk of the talking was done by Pete Wentz, I was glad to hear insights from Patrick Stump about his taste in music and touring. Joe Trohman and Andy Hurley chimed in at times with a few words, but I could hardly hear them from where I was sitting and didn’t get the gist of what they were saying.
The interviewers did have compelling questions, but I felt that it wound up going back to the whole Pete Wentz thing and asking him what it was like to be a dad now, etc. They touched upon them touring with 50 Cent and how fans want them to play older stuff, but I feel like I didn’t really get anything out it.
Don’t get me wrong, I love their music and I was really glad to go to this, however, aside from being four guys who make good music, I would say they don’t really have a lot of personality that makes them stand out from other bands. I was really bummed that it wasn’t that exciting. Maybe I just built it up to be too much.
