Hey M Girls!
We recently got the chance to hang out with the guys from the hot band Action Item -- Brian, Anthony, David, Mark and Dan. They dished about their upcoming tour with Hot Chelle Rae, how much they love their fans, and their celebrity crushes! We had tons of fun getting to know them!
Check out some highlights from our chat sesh:
M: Hey, guys! Can you tell us how you got started in music?
Anthony: We all grew up loving music. The first song I wrote was in the third grade, and the only person who ever heard it was my mom. It was called, "Why Him, Not Me." I guess I was a little emo in third grade.
David: My parents actually forced me to play piano for years. After a while, I started actually liking it. Then I moved to bass and started really enjoying my time playing that.
Mark: I played the talent show in fifth grade. I did a crazy drum solo, and I smashed all of my pieces, because I thought I was a punk rock kid back then. I watched a take of it, and the crowd was cheering and stuff. It was such an amazing feeling.
M: How did you all meet?
Brian: Me, Dave and Dan pretty much grew up together. I met Anthony and Mark in high school.
Mark: We all live really close to each other. It's literally like a school bus picks us all up.
M: Where do you get inspiration for your songs?
Anthony: We like to write about things that affect us personally. The song "Somewhere Out There" was inspired by a girl that I didn't even meet, but I thought that one day, we would be great together - like a 'love at first sight' kind of thing.
M: What's your favorite part about going on tour?
Brian: Meeting new fans everyday. That's my biggest thing. I want to make sure that everyone in the crowd is having a great time.
Mark: We did a headlining tour this past fall and we did meet-and-greets after the show where we met everyone - every single person that came to the show.
M: Have you had any cool fan encounters?
Anthony: One time, a fan took us to Harry Potter World. It was for her birthday and she wanted to go with us.
M: That's so sweet! Do you have any celebrity crushes?
Mark: I love Zooey Deschanel.
Brian: I still am in love with Emma Watson. Always will be.
Anthony: A couple months back, Debby Ryan tweeted me. Ever since then, I've had a little bit of a crush.
So sweet! The boys also took the time to perform their tune, "Somewhere Out There" for us. Check it out:
