Together Pangea Talks Recording, High School, and Scene Hair
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Together Pangea is formed by the type of boys that you always had a little bit of a crush on in high school: a little bit out there, but bad boy good looking all at once. After a killer record release last year, I had high expectations for the band's newest LP, and was not disappointed. They have refined their sound with their new album, The Phage, with great outcomes. The Phage brings even more punk, but with even more mastery than their last album. I sat down to talk to the band about recording, high school and Danny's scene hair. What do you think you were like in high school? Did you know each other? William Keegan: I knew Danny when he was in high school, but I'm older than he is. I dropped out of high school. I didn't really go to high school, but I didn't really have a lot of friends so I stayed home and watched a lot of reruns of Saturday Night Live. Were you into music? William: I was. I would sit around and play guitar all day. Who did you listen to? William: ...

Robin Zander Rules, And I Just Talked to Him
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Cheap Trick Frontman Opens Up About His Current Club Tour, Family & The Future So you know how sometimes you don't realize how much a cultural phenomenon that's kind of been on your radar forever means to you until it's staring you in the face? That totally happened to me this weekend when I figured out that Cheap Trick frontman Robin Zander was scheduled to play at a small but brilliant club called The Birchmere less than one mile away from my home just outside of Washington, DC. Christian Josi Of course I bought tickets immediately. For instinctively, I have been in varying degrees of awe of the guy since I was a teen. That's like 30-plus years. But it's not something I spend a lot of time thinking about because I don't hear about him much. It is strangely easy to forget how awesome -- and important -- Robin Zander and Cheap Trick are when you're talking rock 'n' roll -- or just Things That Are Cool. And it's similarly easy to forget that Robin himself is arguably the ...

Rock band Cheap Trick fires back at drummer with lawsuit
Yahoo News - over 3 years
By Tom Hals (Reuters) - U.S. rock band Cheap Trick has been around longer than many of the biggest U.S. corporations and now a lawsuit is making them sound more like bickering board members than one-time hit makers behind songs like "Surrender" and "I Want You to Want Me." Richard Nielsen, Thomas Peterson and Robin Zander have sued founding drummer Bun E. Carlos, asking a judge to confirm he was validly removed from the board of Cheap Trick Unlimited Inc and two other band-related corporations. ...

Cheap Trick's Robin Zander on rock hall: 'I was disappointed in them a long, long time ago'
Tampa Bay - about 5 years
Cheap Trick frontman <a class="fplink fp-238447" href="/robin+zander">Robin Zander</a> is no fan of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Visiting the Stuck in the '80s studios earlier this week, Zander playfully scoffed when we asked if he felt any hard feelings for not being inducted yet. "I don't even know if I would go if we were nominated, to be honest," Zander said. "To me, I was disappointed in them a long, long time ago. Look at a band like Kiss [who isn’t in the hall, either]. Come on! There’s a number of things they look at, but who the hell cares? I don’t need someone like them to tell me how great I am." Hell no, you don't! Anyone who has seen Cheap Trick live can vouch for their greatness. "Hey, I think our band is pretty damn good," he told us. "We wouldn't be around for 36, 37 years now if we weren’t pretty decent." Speaking of timeline, the band is about to hit the big Four-Ohhhh mark. Is any big anniversary event planned? Not yet, Robin says, but he expects the band ...
