I have a couple videos from Dfest thanks to Morgan.
As well, thanks to Pia for finding information on a new book which will have a Rooney interview in it. The book is titled Off the Bus and On The Record.
"OFF THE BUS provides a unique Almost Famous perspective: In their interviews, the teens created a casual, off-the-cuff environment, and the artists definitely let their guards down. The artists were captured at various points in their careers, some on the upward trajectory and others enjoying big success.
"Included are high-visibility rock stars like Gavin DeGraw, Maroon 5, The Donnas, and Rooney, as well as hot up-and-comers such as Charlotte Sometimes, Eisley, and The All-American Rejects. Other featured bands are Cartel, CKY, Cobra Starship, Dave Melillo, Fat Mike (NOFX), Marko 72 (Sugarcult), Gym Class Heroes, Jack’s Mannequin, Meg & Dia, My Chemical Romance, New Found Glory, OK Go, The Academy Is…, The Starting Line, Yellowcard, and some surprise superstars."
The book is available to buy on Amazon.
