Soupy Is The Man!

We have the natural inclination to place the artists we love on pedestals. What we often forget is that they are still human beings. On Thursday night, I had the honor of interviewing Soupy Campbell of The Wonder Years (interview will be up soon I promise!). More after the jump. 

 

Soupy was warm, friendly and incredibly personable. Best of all, despite all of the success the band has been having, Soupy is still incredibly humble. You can tell that he makes music because he loves it and that he is thankful for being able to do it for a living. I've done a handful of interviews before, but this one undoubtedly the best. Even after the interview, Soupy hung out with me and my friend. He could have easily left and done something different, but instead he chose to walk around Anaheim's Downtown Disney with us. The Wonder Years are a band that you should respect even if you do not like them. They write music that means something. Over this past year, their music has gotten me through a lot and I know I'm not alone in saying this. So let's continue to support these guys. Buy The Upsides, see them on tour, do what you can to keep this band afloat. In a world where it is easy to get jaded, The Wonder Years clearly have their heads on straight. Here's to long career guys!
