Waitaminute - I just read in Time Magazine's Quote of the Day
that Pete Wentz
is the bassist
for Fall Out Boy.
The only reason I know who Pete Wentz is is that he knocked-up Ashlee Simpson-Wentz (née Ashlee Simpson). But I just assumed he was lead-singer of the band, or, at the very least, lead guitar.
The bassist is the goofy dork of the band, and has been throughout all of musical history. Don't believe me? Compare / contrast: Bill Wyman / Mick Jagger. Ron Wood / Mick Jagger. Krist Novoselic / Kurt Cobain. John Entwistle / Pete Townshend. Hugh McDonald / Jon Bon Jovi. Bobby Dall / Bret Michaels. Jeff Ament / Eddie Vedder. Reginald Arvizu / Jonathan Davis. Dave Farrell / Chester Bennington.
Michael "Flea" Balzary.
So Ashlee, if you're reading, why are you slumming? At least your sister nabbed the lead-singer of 98 Degrees. (Whose name escapes me at the moment.)
And here I was thinking you were the more clever of the Simpson Sisters ...
