Peter was on cnn.com/live again this morning talking about new releases and trying not to dissolve into a fit of cuss words and obscene gestures when they talked about the Jonas Brothers. He also covered the much more Current-pleasing Tom Morello project, Street Sweepers Social Club, and British Americana-ists Old Man Pie.

Almost a year out of High School, things have happened pretty quickly for the Carter Twins. After a chance encounter with a MTV executive, Zach and Josh Carter were on the road to a record deal with CMT Music/Meteor 17. With their debut single "Heart Like Memphis" now out to radio and CMT, the brothers took time out of their recording schedule to talk to Roughstock.
Matt Bjorke: When did you guys know you wanted to be muscians?
Zach Carter: I’d say we came out of the womb singing, no joke. We were in theater when we were little and we’ve been singing ever since. We knew from the start that we wanted a music career.
Matt: So I guess having parents that worked in the radio industry kind of helped you out?
Zach: It actually did because we actually grew up in the halls of country radio station WGAR in Cleveland, OH. We were immersed in country music…
Josh Carter:…From A young age….
Zach: Yes, from a young age so it was really great.

Breaking News - Jonas Bros. take over government in bloodless coup; install Hannah Montana as Secretary of State!!!
She watched every minute she could of the Barack Obama inauguration festivities - the parades, the ceremonies and the balls. Then Pam Petty spent much of the next day reading newspaper stories about everything she had seen hours before.
“I guess I turned into a groupie,” Petty said.
The election of Obama has turned many into obsessive fans who follow the president the way teenagers might follow the Jonas Brothers or sports fans follow star athletes.
But this time, fanaticism has substance. We are interested in the leader of the free world, after all.
“It’s a healthy obsession,” Petty said.
Petty did take brief pauses from the blanket Obama coverage on Inauguration Day. Like when she had to get into a gown for an inaugural ball held at a friend’s house in Chandler. Everyone was in tuxedos and gowns to watch the festivities on television.
“It was fun to be dressed up,” she said.
Obama came into the White House riding hopes as high as any president in modern times, said Brooks Simpson, a presidential historian who teaches at Arizona State University. And the public seems more interested in his life than they have with past presidents.
“Not just because of the modern media or anything like that,” he said. “No one has had this sort of microscopic attention paid to such minutiae.”
Obama’s inauguration brought crowds to bars and movie theaters and public gathering places. HBO and ABC broadcast concerts and balls. ESPN stopped televising sports and broadcast the inauguration ceremony.
Obama started a book club of sorts, after he said in interviews that he was reading books about Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. Sales spiked for the thick history tomes.
Obama’s daughter held up a camera and the brand became instantly popular. The J.Crew Web site shut down as people tried to look for the coats the Obama girls were wearing.
But, Simpson said, it will be interesting to see how long the sheen lasts. Other popular presidents have taken a tumble as they started work.
Gerald Ford was a refreshing break from Richard Nixon and considered a breath of fresh air, Simpson said. That feeling lasted until Ford pardoned Nixon.
The public was similarly “enraptured” with Jimmy Carter, Simpson said. But he left office after one term, turned out by a disappointed electorate.
And Ulysses S. Grant, who was the general who preserved the Union in the Civil War, rode a tremendous wave of popularity and hope into the Oval Office. But that also didn’t last.
“We fall in love with these people,” Simpson said. “We pretend we know them. And they disappoint us.”
Sherry Williams doesn’t expect to be disappointed. She said she tunes in frequently for Obama updates because she’s fueled by hope in the new administration.
“They’re real, they’re friendly and they’re new,” she said of the first family. “People are tired of business as usual.”
Williams, who works as a receptionist at the Arizona Democratic Party headquarters, said she has heard from Republicans who are closely following Obama and like what they’re hearing.
“There’s substance,” she said.
Rep. Ed Ableser, who represents a Tempe district in the Arizona Legislature, also thinks the Obama obsession is based on reality.Breaking News - Jonas Bros. take over government in bloodless coup; install Hannah... more
For the iPod generation, October 19, 2008 at 7:55 p.m. marked what could be considered the most pivotal moment in their lives--a music video premiere by The Jonas Brothers. The long-awaited release of the "Lovebug" music video has caused a stir among tweens because of its months-long buzz--complete with behind-the-scenes clips, making-of's, sneak peaks, teasers and what seemed to be an endless wait. (It's the adult equivalent of waiting in line at the Post Office). At this year's MTV Music Video Awards, the Jonas Brothers gave a "Seaseme Street" style performance of the song--with the stoop and all.
So what are your thoughts? Is it anticlimatic or over-the-moon?For the iPod generation, October 19, 2008 at 7:55 p.m. marked what could be considered... more

The Jonas Brothers perform at the HMV music store on Oxford Street in London on Friday.
Kevin, 20, Joe, 18, and Nick, 15, just blogged about their experience at the store:
“We ended the day at the HMV Music store. The store was packed with JB fans. It was fun to see the people from the label there with their mouths wide open and their hands over their ears. The shouts were so loud. We signed for 300 people that waited in line. They told us that there were a lot of people that had been in line since the day before. The wristbands were gone in 30 minutes.
“As we were leaving there was a group of girls running after our vehicles. It will never grow old to us to see hundreds of screaming fans chasing our car AND the looks on the faces of people when our fans come around the corner running after our cars screaming. Totally crazy!”The Jonas Brothers perform at the HMV music store on Oxford Street in London on... more
