Hoobastank: Faceless Talent Recognized

Published: 2003-12-20
Members of the California rock band Hoobastank can still walk down the street undisturbed. Even after having a platinum album and touring with the likes of Jay Z and Incubus no one seems to know what the band members look like. Members of Hoobastank are not offended however, because they believe it's the music that counts. When a magazine named them the most faceless band, singer Doug Robb saw it as a compliment not an insult. "We don't look like guys in a band," said guitarist Dan Estrin.

Estrin is the songwriter for Hoobastank. He said that his influences ranged from Air Supply to Metallica; but adds that he didn't listen to anything that made him think.

Hoobastank will be in Canada for three dates on their North American tour:

January 23 Montreal
January 24 Toronto
February 12 Vancouver
