Lifehouse spoke with The Philippine Star at the Marriott Hotel Manila to promote their recent concert in the city at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The American rock band talked about how beneficial it is in the era of the internet to have an outlet to stay in touch with their legions of fans. “It’s easy now to not get disconnected unlike the rock stars back in the day, they were kind of disconnected because they don’t have contact with their everyday fans, so the further they grow away artistically and they don’t understand why their fans don’t like their music anymore,” vocalist Jason Wade said. “With the Internet, you put out on a song, you get feedback instantly that you can kind of gauge if people are connecting to it and if they’re into the direction that you’re taking.” Read more.

Among the questions and answers:

Lifehouse: Too many. Just saw Coldplay again n they blew our mindholes. Honor to open for them last year.
Lifehouse vocalist and guitarist Jason Wade spoke with The Examiner about the band’s gig last weekend which followed the Washington Nationals game against the New York Mets on Saturday afternoon at Nationals Park. Asked about his favorite player, the 31-year-old, who grew up just outside Seattle, Washington, selected the greatest Mariner to play the game and the 1995 season that allowed the struggling franchise to make its first playoff appearance. “We’re not supposed to say,” he joked before selecting a non Nat. “I’m kind of old school but my favorite team of all time is that Ken Griffey Jr. team from back in the day, back in the ’90s.” The full story at washingtonexaminer.com has since been removed.

Lifehouse frontman Jason Wade tells hollywoodoutbreak.com he’s not into reading reviews about the group’s material. “Whether it’s good or bad, it’s one person’s opinion, and there’s not really truth to it because everyone’s opinion on music is different,” Wade explained. “To get upset about a bad review or to get really excited about a good review is just kind of all relative. It doesn’t really matter.”
