Bill Picture of the San Francisco Examiner caught up with A.F.I. frontman Davey Havok who says while he worried about fan’s reaction with their first mainstream release ‘Sing the Sorry’, he was relieved to see it debut at #5 on the Billboard charts. “I felt like I was going to throw up and cry and pass out when I heard we were number five,” he says. “To work for so long and see this slow growth and finally be rewarded. I was literally floored.” But even more exciting was seeing himself for the first time on MTV. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, there I am.’ I didn’t need it for validation or anything but I grew up watching MTV so it’s surreal to think that some young person out there is watching our video the same way I used to look at David Bowie and Duran Duran and A-ha.”
