Taylor Hanson in The Firing Line: “I’ve always respected my hair’s natural juices” - Leave a comment

taylorhanson

If you thought ‘90s pop sensations Hanson broke up sometime after ‘MMMBop’, you wouldn’t be alone. Back before the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber and One Direction, Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson were winning tween hearts and dominating bedroom real estate, thanks – for the most part – to their 1997 breakthrough record Middle of Nowhere.

It’s pretty easy to lump them in with the likes of Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync and Five, but unlike those manufactured groups Hanson bucked the odds and have continued to make music and tour successfully for the last 21 years. Since 2007 Hanson have received three Grammy nominations and (at the time of writing) spawned 11 children between them. The brothers, now aged 28, 31 and 33, also have their own record label and are about to embark on an Australian tour to promote new album Anthem – probably to the same screaming girls who dug them 20 years ago. Lead singer, middle brother and “the good looking one” Taylor Hanson stepped into the FL Firing Line to field tough questions on religion, beer, girls and being a child star.

I’ve got some facts about you from an Angelfire fan page from the ‘90s, and I’d like to fact check some of them.
I seriously doubt there’s many real facts in there, but I’ll do my best.

Apparently you write with your right hand, and you deny that you’re ambidextrous.
Um, I am very right handed. I wish I was ambidextrous. If you learn to play piano well, you do have to develop your left hand. And that’s all I’ll say about that.

You use Flex shampoo.
I don’t know what Flex shampoo is. I’d like to correct the record. I’ve never been choosy about shampoo. When you have as much as hair as we do, in the Hanson gene pool, you try and use shampoo that keeps your hair from having a life of its own. I’ve always respected the natural juices and try to not overdo it. You just don’t need to wash too much. Wash as little as possible.

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who has donated photos over the last few weeks! Your cards, stickers, and merch are in the mail. Thanks to all of our hard work, HansonVault.com officially has the largest Hanson photo gallery on the internet, and it makes me so proud! We’re just shy of having 13,000 pictures, which is absolutely amazing for a site that is just starting. *brushes off shoulders*

The discography, which is our current big project, is coming along nicely! I can’t wait to show the finished product off to you guys. It’s going to be awesome.

Message From The Band

We only have two more shows in Europe before the ANTHEM would tour shuts down for the Christmas holiday. We are having a great time playing shows and doing Walks for the Take The Walk campaign, in almost every case the walks in Europe have been the first walks we have hosted in each country.

On the bus there is a mix of enthusiasm for such a great tour, and melancholy as we’re sad to see such a great run come to a close. The Christmas season is a beautiful time of year to be traveling Europe, each city having their Christmas market in full swing, people walking the streets window-shopping for that perfect something, for that special someone. This is also such a special time to spent with family (no brothers don’t count) going to christmas parties, chopping firewood, and generally decking the halls, and we hope everyone will have a chance to enjoy this time. How bitter sweet life can be. As we wrap up this tour with the final shows in Italy we will try and suck the marrow out of every moment for the next few days and then find our merry way home with no regrets!

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

Thanks to MMMBoptastic.com for the permission to share the Apple show photos. They came out great! <3 All of the single art for the singles from Middle of Nowhere have been added to the gallery. Check out the art from the various worldwide releases here:

- MMMBop (1997)
- Where’s the Love (1997)
- I Will Come To You (1997)
- Weird (1998)
- Thinking of You (1998)

I’ve been revamping the lyrics/discography section the last day or so. It’ll take some time to complete it, but it’s shaping up really well. I’m trying to incorporate track length, song information, b-sides, album/single sales, single art, and a bunch more stuff. If you want to see a preview, click here and if you have any suggestions, let me know what you think!

Once the discography section is built and completed, I’ll be starting on the epic adventure of compiling a video archive. It’ll be a massive undertaking, but I’m ready!

Also, I’m always wanting to grow HansonVault.com into the absolute best site it can be, so comment or email me if you’ve got things you want to see here. Thanks guys! <3
