Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz Surprised By Rob Halford Praise

(TeamRock Radio) Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz has spoken about the band's ability to appeal to both pop and rock fans. And while he reports his friends think it must be easy for the group to have commercial success, the vocalist and bassist says there are two sides to the story.

Wentz tells Rolling Stone: "It's strange when it feels a little like being on an island - and it's still a constant fight. Some of my friends are like, 'It seems so easy for you guys, getting songs on the radio and stuff.' I'm like, I wish you knew. When we first played Uma Thurman for Top 40 radio, it was like the look on the face of a puppy when they don't understand the command."

He adds: "But there are cool moments. We played a pretty heavy Australian festival, Soundwave, and we felt like oddballs. Then Rob Halford from Judas Priest sits down at our trailer, and he's like, 'That Irresistible video is so good.' We're like, 'What the f***?'" Read more here.
