Hey! Iâ€™m excited to bring you another great episode from the 12 years of Music, Mayhem, and More event. Today youâ€™ll be able to see me chat with two sweet band members of Pennywise, Fletcher and Randy. We talk about the exhibit and this upcoming summer. Fletcher and Randy tell us in one word how they would sum up the Warped Tour, so be sure to tune in and find out what exactly they had to say. Plus, let us know how you would sum up your very own Warped Tour experience in one word!
Stay tuned for one last video from the Rock Hall event, featuring Bad Religion, which will be coming your way shortly. After that Iâ€™ll be flying to LA to cover the Kick off Party for you guys, and that entertainment should hold you over until the main event, starting June 29, 2007. I canâ€™t wait to see you all there!
Until next timeâ€¦
