Default A Tiny Confession

Even though I am 18, I still feel like a 13 year old girl who still idolizes teen pop stars and one band that I love is the Jonas Brothers!!! Don't get me wrong, I still like "good" (whatever you call good) music like jazz and stuff.

Anyways, why am I starting this thread? Well...Nick Jonas is a drummer!!! I would love jam with him one day. Just thought I'd let y'all know that a teen pop star is a drummer as well as a guitarist and singer. He's a total hottie too!

*ok teen gushing over*

Here's some sweet vids of his drumming

Oh...and...um...if any of you know them or have connections with them could you hook me up?

Sorry, guys, but I'm just a bit obsessed with them right now. I'm not a fanatic just a BIG fan.

That will never change. Look at how girls acted in reaction to the Beatles.

No idea who the Jonas Brothers are, checked them out...no real comment. Typical bubble gum pop. I sometimes wonder if the female fans of the band actually like the music or just like the idea that they're 4 (or 5, I wasn't counting) good looking guys with instruments. I never had throngs of screaming girls (or even 1 screaming or semi-interested girl) when I was in a band, so I guess I answered my own question, at least in regards to the "good looking" part. I guess that was my problem, I wasn't :D

Hey, if you wanna Rock like the Jonas brothers, go ahead and make it happen. The world needs more cute girls that play instruments in mainstream rock bands. I'll listen to highly sophisticated music, but I got to say; there's nothing more pleasing (it's tough to find a word to put here) than a bunch of cuties blazin' away at some cheezy bubble gum pop tune. Rock on!

Meh, I'll pass on that too. That only strengthens the feeling that some have that girls can't play decent music and only get by on their looks. There is too much bubble gum music that it makes me feel like these artists only get into it to be popular, not to make good music.

Yeah 4SD, I know it will never stop, I just dont know why one would enjoy being so obnoxious. the Beatles had it the worst though, my dad (Beatle fanatic) told me one of the reasons they stopped touring later was because of the 24/7 screaming.

Yeah, putting the lousy PA's and amps they had to work with when they first came out aside, the screaming was so bad that it was the biggest reason why they couldn't hear each other. I think I read that sometimes they'd each be playing a different song.

Good music? I accept it as not being, by standards of integrity, good. I feel it is, however, supposed to brighten up your day and force you to appreciate the lighter side of life. There's just something of an aura and spiritually refreshing nature that goes with dumb, "poppy", "'snappy", music with girls pulling the strings. It makes me say Chic Corea?, Who? for a short while. However, I couldn't live off a steady diet of it. But once in a while I welcome board room produced tunes with open and appreciative arms. But I do get your point.

Just watched the clips. He seemed fine to me. I mean how is a drummer SUPPOSED to play that kind of music (pop/rock)? As to their looks. It sells. Drummers don't have to worry so much but I think there's something to be said about the frontman/woman needing a certain amount of charisma and looks. It sells records. Whenever I auditon for bands I always scrutinize the person who fronts the group. Is he or she got charisma? Will they engage an audience? They have to be good musicians, of course but a combination of looks and personality certainly helps.

As far as feeling weird being ga-ga over a rockstar. Don't. I have a friend who's nearing 50 and whenever the subject of the Monkees is brought up she turns into a babbling teenager and goes on and on about (frigging) Davey Jones! I'm the same way when it comes to Julianna Hatfield and the Breeders-era Deal sisters. Crushes are meant to be silly and fun. Oh god, did I just say that?! I need to go drink whiskey and shoot some guns. I'm sounding like a chick!

I won't say I'll pass but I won't stick to playing bubble gum music forever. It'll be nice for a few years, living in the limelight of Hollywood, but as everything gets, it'll get old. I'll use it as just another step in my procession of musical achievements...looks good for your resume, playing in front of at least 10,000 people every night for at least 3 months. I also think that all musicians should be able to play any kind of music and open minded.

Nick Jonas, the drummer, is a front man as well. He was the JB (Jonas Brothers) drummer when they first started, but now he's a guitarist and singer. Most people think he's the cutest one, but I think Kevin's the cutest

Ha, ha, ha... it is not weird at all... men, for instance are kids forever... that connection to letting go and being a bit naive sometimes is something positive for an artist to do, in my opinion.

Thank you all so much for not giving me "The Jonas Brothers suck! Stop wasting your time." bullcrap. I was very insecure about it considering my age. I don't want to be a music snob because it turns some people off.

I mean, he is no bonham, but he does the job for the type of music he plays. I realized most of that type of music is based upon the vocalist, because most of the guitar playing is just power chords and stuff, and the drums are generally snare 2 and 4 stuff.

W/e he does the job.

I dont know why I keep laughing at that, but I guess saying that in such a male dominated forum was so out of place it cracked me up. Like seeing Woody Allen at the Apollo or something

The Jonas Brothers...Not so bad...But don't get me started on the Naked Brothers Band. (Come on Nickelodeon what were you thinking?!)

I don't voluntarily watch this, I have kids.... and the tv is either on Disney or Nick 90% of the time.

Don't get me started either. I don't have kids and haven't actually seen a full "episode", but the commercials that come on when I'm trying to watch Spongebob are really getting old.

Do they even play their own instruments? I'm willing to bet not.

The NBB (Naked Brothers Band) isn't good either. The singer's voice really bothers me.

Aren't you almost 30? Just tell me your under the influence of something illegal.

Not trying to be an jerk but I just got cable a few years ago so I never watched any of these shows/channels as a kid, so I'm kinda ignorant.

I'm going to be 27 in February. Both me and my wife watch Spongebob mainly due to my sister's influence. She has two young boys and they watch it and she kept telling me to check it out. I finally did and we actually find alot of the episodes pretty funny.

You're never too young to still act like a kid.

If watching Spongebob, the Muppets, *OLD* Sesame Street (pre-elmo), Fraggle Rock, and Disney Movies is wrong...

No it's not wrong, just... I don't know, a little odd. I guess that's because Sponge Bob just annoys me and most of my family hasn't really come out of the 60's yet, most of my aunts and uncles don't have TVs. I'm a little weird for my generation though, I don't like cell phones, no myspace/facebook, and I listen to Lightnin' Hopkins and most everything that isn't popular

Being a 13-yr old in an 18-yr old body might be a bit annoying from time to time, but think of how it'll be when you're 40: you'll still feel like 25.
You might start to sag at that age, but hey, at least you feel like you're 25 :p
