Preview of the movie CAMP ROCK from Access Hollywood
Every time I think I'm close to the heart
of what it means to know just who I am
I think I finally found a better place to start
But no one ever seems to understand
I need to try to get to where you are
Could it be your not that far?
You’re the voice I hear inside my head
the reason that I'm singing
I need to find you
I gotta find you
Q: Did Miley Cyrus offer any advice on headlining an arena full of screaming fans?
Kevin: That show, playing the arenas, was a dream come true. We've been touring for two-and-a-half years now — playing every little rock 'n' roll club across America, to playing the arenas in those cities, to now going back and playing them by ourselves. It's more than we could have ever asked for.
Q: Are you ready for the inevitable onslaught?
Joe: I really don't know what to expect. This next tour is going to be very interesting. The first leg sold out, and we're completely surprised and shocked.
Kevin: Day in and day out, we're always freaking out. We always hoped, but we never really expected that we would be able to be in a place where we could do those things. It's unbelievably awesome.
Q: What's been the craziest fan moment to date?
Joe: We've had some crazy ones, people throwing articles of clothing on the stage. Ellen was crazy. So many fans came to the studio. We were doing one shot where they were all behind us. They all just jumped on the couches, and moved the couches, like, five feet. They were all trying to get to us. We were like, 'Whoa! Whoa!'
Q: People are standing in lines for hours for tickets. Would any artist inspire you to such lengths?
Joe: Spice Girls — all day. I would go see the Spice Girls. I would stand in line for, like, three weeks. Or, like, an hour. I would totally love to go see that concert. I'm just sayin'.
Kevin: I would have to say probably the Police reunion. I really wanted to go see it. I didn't get a chance. I think I would have waited for some tickets for them, for sure.
Q: Your Houston show is on Valentine's Day. How will you make it special?
Kevin: We'll try to make it as romantic as possible — as romantic as a rock 'n' roll show can be. It's always so much fun to perform on Valentine's Day. It becomes a whole other kind of thing — like, 'Wow.' I would have never probably gone to a concert on Valentine's Day, but it's such a cool thing to do.
Q: Does the concert ruin any personal Valentine's Day plans?
Joe: I kind of hate Valentine's Day. I've had a bad record. There was this girl I liked a lot, and I was going to try to surprise her on Valentine's Day. I had it all set up. I was going to secretly go to her school and get her a single rose and be like, 'Will you be my Valentine?' in front of all of her friends.
The night before, I made the wrong decision of acting like there was something wrong on the phone. I was trying to play it up. It was a bad idea. The next day, in the morning, she broke it off. I was younger. Girls were a little dumber, too.
Q: What are the benefits of being in a band of brothers?
Joe: If something's wrong with you or you're just having a bad day, you know that your brothers are there for you. Any brother will be there for you. That's really cool. We really rarely fight because we get along so well. We have so much fun onstage, and we have a whole different respect for each other onstage.
Kevin: People are kind of freaked out when we actually don't fight. We actually do hang out and laugh together and joke around. We have a really good dynamic as three of us, and as a family, and as a team. It's pretty awesome.
Q: Has music always been a family affair?
Joe: We kind of always grew up into music and making music with my dad. He was part of record labels and things like that. My mom's an amazing singer. We kind of grew into it.
I still wonder what kind of music my dad was playing to us when we were in my mom's belly. I wonder what were the influences back then.
Q: What's currently on your iPod?
Kevin: I love the Band of Horses record. The Beatles and Switchfoot, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Eric Hutchinson, Johnny Cash, Rooney.
I got this Sia record (Some People Have Real Problems), and I was like, 'Joe and Nick, you guys have got to get it.' They both got it on their iTunes. We're very much into paying for the music and not sharing it.
Q: Talk a bit about the Jonas style — blazers, skinny ties and sparkly shoes. Is that pure stagewear or personal style, too?
Kevin: You totally would see us in things like that when we're not onstage. Even right now, we're just in regular clothes, but it's not regular clothes. Joe's in, like, a blazer and tie, and I'm in a vest.
We like to dress up, and that was part of our goal. We always said we wanted to bring some high fashion back to rock 'n' roll.
Q: What's the new album going to be like?
Joe: We actually made it on a bus, on the road, with us. We changed out a bus and built in a recording studio and made 10 songs. We went back into a (proper) studio to make tweaks and finish up little things. That was really, really awesome.
It's the same old Jonas Brothers, but I think we've explored deeper lyrical content and also deeper melodies and chord structures. We just wanted to expand our horizons. I just played a mandolin on this song the other day.
