CDNow’s Miss Truth reports Howie Dorough of the Backstreet Boys hung out with Taylor Hanson and Zach Hanson during a celebrity packed performance by Phantom Planet at the Roxy on Saturday. The headlining band was celebrating the release of ‘The Guest’ which dropped last Tuesday. Phantom Planet probably shouldn’t celebrate too much, as their debut has failed to crack the top 20 based on early estimates.
What appears to be an e-mail from a Hanson fan was published in the Herald Sun saying, “Next time they release a single or album, don’t think it will sound like crap, because you think they look like girls or are gay. Give them a chance to prove they are gifted and do have the skills to make it big again.”
Hanson.net emailed fans today announcing that the band will be re-airing their ABC’s “A HANSON CHRISTMAS” holiday show from 1997 which will be the first of a series of vintage Hanson webcast events that are only available to people who sign up for the band’s free member site. Before the webcast on Wednesday night, December 19th at 7:00 p.m. EST the staff will be holding a chat at 6:00 p.m. ES where they’ll be giving away a dozen or so very limited edition Hanson.Net T-shirts.
