In 2001 I followed the band during its first headlining UK tour. I was lucky enough to interview Davey for my high school’s zine. I was nervous, and he was so, so sweet. We shared a plate of strawberries and granola bars, drank juice, and the interview felt like chatting with an old friend.
That’s a thing I’ve always loved about the band: Davey, Jade, Hunter and Adam are amazing and really easygoing humans. They would always come out to chat with their fans before or after the shows, and made us all feel comfortable and such.
