Jean Paul Makhlouf of Cash Cash checked in with fans on the band’s blog at MySpace (@cashcash) on Sunday (June 14), enjoying the fact that he managed to convince a fan of the group to stop smoking if he gave her a free CD. The singer writes:
Aight so here’s what’s cookin!! I got a MySpace message saying this…
“You probably won’t remember this but at the Manchester date for Cobra Starship’s tour you asked my friend Shannon if she’d stop smoking. She promised you she would and I just thought you should know that she hasn’t smoked a single cigarette since. I know a lot of people who want to thank you for encouraging her like that otherwise she wouldn’t have stopped. Thank you so much, you’ve done us such a huge favor. :)”
When I saw that I was soooooo stoked! I remember giving her a free CD if she promised to stop smoking… and she did!! Hahah I always hate seeing young people get sucked into smoking… I know I told this story before but now’s the perfect time to tell it again haha so last year on the Metro Station tour I ran into these 2 girls that must have been 12 or 13 after the show when we were playing acoustic outside… They came up to me to say hey and they each had cigs in their mouth!!! At first I was like oh these girls just look a little young then they open their mouths to talk and I saw they still had braces!!!! I totally freaked out and was like girls girls!!! You know you don’t really want to be smoking!!!
