HIM bassist Mige spoke with Time Off magazine about the effect ‘Jackass’ star Bam Margera has had on their success in America. “Let’s say that it’s probably more than anybody cares to admit,” Mige said. “He’s got a lot of kids who are into skateboard culture in America and there’s probably three million of them in the United States. All of them love Bam and Steve-O and ‘Jackass’, so when you get your music on a show like that of course it attracts those people. We probably wouldn’t be signed to an American label if it wasn’t for Bam. We’ve toured there three times and I don’t think we would have managed to do that if it wasn’t for him. It’s really great and it’s one way to get there.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
