    • Andy: (on Pete Wentz) What people don't realize about Pete is that Pete's always been Pete. People only seem one side of him, and I think the press magnifies some things that peopl would see as negative, maybe too cocky or something? They think that's because of our success as a band. If you see anything cocky about Pete, that's Pete.

    • Andy: (on if rock bands would ruin civilization) Probably not. Music would probably go. A lot of art would. That's what I'm saying – I'm really into comics and movies and video games, and I don't want to give that stuff up. At the same time, I think it's filling the void for the stuff we're missing.

    • Andy: Ultimately I am an employee of a corporation, and that's weird, and does contradict some of the things I believe in. But at the same time, I have to make a living.

    • Andy: My whole thing is I'm not into civilization as a whole. The only actual solution is the eventual collapse and demise of civilization . . .I think it needs to happen, but I no one, not even me, really wants it to happen.

    • Andy: I'm still this vegan straight-edge kid from Milwaukee who hates America, hates white people, and hates all this sh*t as much as I ever have.

  • So underrated, and it isn’t right . . .

    And Hurley is a great drummer, and considering that he is from Menomonee Falls, where my mom is from, and has roots in Milwaukee, also attending UWM, my college, he’s got my respect. Andy actually seems to be the least known member of Fall Out Boy. And this is mostly because most of the attention goes to Peter, then Patrick, and then it seems to be Joe. I’ve seen Fall Out Boy live a few times, and the last time, at the Honda Civic Tour, he had this amazing drum solo. I was blown away. He is so good!

    I think there should be an article about Fall Out Boy that focuses on everyone but Pete, especially Andy and Joe. How much more can we learn about Pete? We do get some exposure to Patrick. But when it comes to Andy and Joe, I feel bad when they each get 3 paragraphs. Andy needs more recognition. After all, what is a band without the drums? The drums provide the beat, and the songs all have a good beat. Andy is really cool, smart, and talented, and it is about time more people see that.moreless
