You have to know what you want and keep going for it.

You never get to pick how you get pinned and how people perceive you.
I don’t know if it’s irrational, and I would never say this before, but I think I’m a little bit agoraphobic when I’m in huge crowds of people. I mean, it’s claustrophobic, probably – small spaces and large groups of people, anxiety rises for me.

Hanson has rapid female fans, which I’m completely proud of, but a lot of fans are a contingent that have grown up with us really – our peers. There’s younger fans. More and more guys are Hanson fans [but they’re] musicians or kind of guys who were into a Beatles record.
I know for my wife and I, we always loved the idea of being young parents.

Everything is exciting. Who knows what will happen next?
