AM: Who is the Hart n' Dagger guy and will you bring women's apparel into this line in the future?
JBJ: The HnD man doesn’t buy into fads or fashions. We believe that torn jeans better have been torn on the playing field or because they’ve been worn out – not torn by some fashionista. If you’re looking for timeless and classic jeans for any situation, from work to play, HnD are for you.
AM: As an iconic band with worldwide fame, how do you stay grounded and connected to your roots to continue releasing songs that resonate with fans?
JBJ: Well, you still are who you are. You can never get away from where you grew up and where your roots are. So, that’s who we are… We’re a bunch of guys from Jersey that made it.
We’ve worked our tails off. And we got lucky through the hard work, and we’re proud of it, and that's reflected in our songs and our attitude.
AM: You're in great shape and are currently on tour, what's your favorite workout?
JBJ: I've been a runner for 40 years. When I do it, it gives me an hour to think. Fresh air, blood flow, and clear thoughts.”
AM: This House is Not For Sale Tour is offering bands the opportunity to open in their city - which is an amazing opportunity and such a great way to show local support. This is the third tour (2006’s Have A Nice Day Tour and 2010’s The Circle Tour) where you have invited local and regional artists to share the stage with you for the Live Nation - promoted concerts. Why do you think it's important to have them open an arena show?
