oh yeah, and I never knew Conan was tall until I saw this. I never really thought about it, but my husband said he's 6'5" or something like that. I know Jared and Cole are both pretty short but Conan looked so freakishly tall next to them.
Oh, and I don't begrudge them their success at all. Have they evolved as a band? Yes. Have they conformed? Yes. The first time we saw them (we were pretty late anyway, it was 2004, I think) was at a bar in Boston called the Chopping Block, and they were a train wreck. Joe was screaming into a busted microphone, Ian wasn't in the band yet, and Jared did a flying kick into the guitarist. I had heard that one of them was known for whipping his huge dick out, and pegged Cole (correctly) as that person because I could just tell that the cute little Elijah Wood -looking kid would have to be the one. I left that show with a splittin headache, yet we saw them again, and again, and again.
We saw them on this tour, and it was probably the last time, not because of anything they did, but because I have a tough time with big crowds and big shows. Then again, when they come around again we might still go. Who knows?
