As someone in their 20’s who grew up listening to bands like New Found Glory and The Starting Line, of course I was a fan of Simple Plan. However, it was at a time long before social media, so getting to be on top of your favorite band dudes was a lot harder than it is today. What they did outside of music was a mystery unless Alternative Press let me know on a monthly basis. Today though, one quick search and you’d be in the know in an instant. So with that, you’d obviously see that Simple Plan’s own Sébastien Lefebvre has taken on a new venture in his life, as the co-host of idobi’s Man of the Hour alongside his longtime pal Patrick Langlois. Being fond of one another’s humor, they clicked instantly when they started to record and that showed in the listeners that continued to tune in.
Now we’ll get a little past and present about Man of the Hour from Sébastien, as well as what this new endeavor means for Simple Plan, and more.
The day will come when I say goodbye to this world and there will be a few things in the back of my mind I still believe to be as true then as they are today; Chuck E. Cheese pizza is king, Drop Dead Fred is the greatest movie ever and Usher is one of the best performers you can see for free at Jimmy Kimmel Live! No really, think about how many hits this man has. Pair that with his dance moves. Finally, add in that his fans are like that of a boy band but hyped the fuck up. The result is probably one of my top three Kimmel’s – ever.
Is there anyone who can watch a terminally ill child meet their favorite celebrity and not cry about it? If you know anyone that can watch those clips with a stone cold face, you may want to check them into an insane asylum because they are clearly psychopaths. This week I saw two and while only one of them is musical, I just had to talk about them because it made me think of those celebrities out there who don’t appreciate their fans *cough* Justin Bieber *cough* First this week was Florence + the Machine visiting a young lady who was stuck in the hospital and couldn’t make it to their show. I mean, just look how happy that visit made this girl. The other was an 18-year-old boy battling cancer for the second time down in San Diego who got a very big surprise when he opened his door and saw three of the Avengers; Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., and Gwyneth Paltrow.
