My opinion has changed but these are some of my favs in vague order
We met up with Chuck Comeau (Simple Plan) in Boston and find out about Simple Plan, playing in music videos, and the new CD.
Transcript of the Interview:
I started playing drums when I was 13 years old. It was about 18 years ago. So have been playing for awhile. I started out in my parents basement, basically begging them to but me a drumset. It took about 6 months of intense lobbying. We had a lead and a bass guitarists and I wasn’t playing anything so I figured I would play drums and bugged my parents and got my first drumkit and I have been playing with Simple Plan for 18 years now. Same singer so pretty crazy.
In terms of my set-up I have been very flexable. I love trying new cymbals, new things that are coming out. Usually I like a brighter sound. I am using the A Zildjian Crashses for a long time. They sound unbelievable live, they really cut through. In the studio or live, they feel really great. I usually go for bigger cymbals 18″ everywhere. Usually people will have different sizes and dimensions and I kind to like to be even. After doing music videos they have fake double cymbals and you have to hit them really hard for things to move in the video. So I can now hit through anything easily.
Simple Plan we are really busy are new record came out “Get Your Heart On!”. It came out several weeks ago. So we will be touring for the next two years. Right now we are on the Van’s Warped Tour. After this we are going to Korea, China, we are going to Japan for Summersonic festival. We are traveling all across Europe. All sorts of festivals and our own shows as well. Its then off to Australia and then more US touring and a big Canadian New Year tour as well. So we will be all over the place. We are pride ourselves on playing live that is what we are all about. We play over 300 shows a year so we are going to be everywhere. All over the world traveling and playing our music and that is the plan.

The meaning behind this song shows no limits. It explains how selfish most of the world is today, and how greedy we can all be. Maybe we should change that.
As Mahatma Gandhi once said “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
I do not own the song “Crazy”, nor the band “Simple Plan”. I simply added the lyrics for entertainment purposes.
