Fall Out Boy lead singer Patrick Stump opened up about his fans, almost going bankrupt after his solo album and the success of the CDs Take This To Your Grave and From Under The Cork Tree.
On his blog, he talks about the pain of being recognized for a recording made when he was so young and the “constant stream of insults” he endures now that he has just enough money to avoid bankruptcy.
He also opens up about the missuccesss of Fall Out Boy’s last album, Folie à Deux (“We were rotten vegetable targets in Clandestine hoodies”) and calls himself a 27 year old has-been.
FOB fans learn that they never did break up even though their flop from 2008 took the wind out of the their sails. Patrick says he would be psyched to hook up with his bandmates but that it probably won’t be “in the near future.”
