So, I usually read my Entertainment Weekly ASAP. It always mentions something related to Twilight. Well, for the June 26/July 3 issue I waited 3 whole days! And guess what?! It has a nice little article about Robert Pattinson and Friends. This issue features Entertainment Weekly's 'Summer Must List'. There I was just reading and I saw this! I was very shocked!
Robert Pattinson and Friends
Must Musical Clique
NAMES/AGES Robert Pattinson, 23; Bobby Long, 22; Sam Bradley, 22; Marcus Foster, 23. WHY THEM One of these names you know. The others you might not, but their profiles are quickly rising, thanks to their songwriting work on the still-hot 'Twilight' soundtrack. Bradley co-penned "Never Think" with Pattinson, while Long and Foster wrote bonus track "Let Me Sign".FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES How did three obscure musicians score such a prominent gig? They had an in: Foster and Bradley went to school with the British actor; Long met the other three at an open-mike night. (Before 'Twilight', Pattinson was also an aspiring singer.) Despite their friendship, their music is quite different. Bradley favors a rock vibe, Long is more folk-inclined, and Foster owes something to Tom Waits. THIS DOESN'T SUCK Bradley was on his way to use the bathroom when Pattinson called to say their song was going to appear in 'Twilight'. "I p---ed myself," he says. Really? "No." NEXT The trio will reunite at July's TwiCon in Dallas. "It's going to be mental," Says Foster. Will Pattinson sit in? "I wouldn't turn up there if I was him," says Long. Foster hopes to record some songs with Pattinson soon: "It might be my stuff, or his stuff, or some stuff we wrote together." ON THEIR MUST LISTS Long loves rockers the Felice Brothers, while Bradley is a fan of Vancouver singer Shera Kelly. One of Foster's favorite actors is Christopher Walken, whose forthcoming film '$5 a Day' features another of Foster's songs.
I thought that was a nice peek into their lives. I enjoyed reading it. At first I thought EW would say they are only good because of Rob, but no, they gave them their approval based on their music. Nice.
