LAURA1219: So, do you like being on the road?
DALLAS: We love to travel. We wouldn't be in this type of work if we didn't like travelling.
SAMAZOO: If you could be another member of the group for one day who would it be and why?
YOUNGSTOWN: I would be D.C., just to figure out why he gets amused by the smallest things in the world.
DALLAS: That was me talking.
SAMMY: Definently D.C.
JENLOVSJUSTIN: Hey guys, how does it feel to be famous and going from virtually unknown to being known by thousands? Dallas, I'm from Kansas City, and i was
just wondering what part you were from?
DALLAS: I lived in Claycomo and also around Liberty. It actually didn't happen overnight. It's been 10 years. As for feeling famous, we get up in the morning like
everyone else does.
KELLY2683: Hey D.C., word got around that you were here tonight, so I thought I'd pop in and say Hi. I finally got the CD, it's awesome! Talk to ya later, Kelly!
BRINK1475: I love that song "I'll Be Your Everything".
ILLNEVER: I don't know if my question will get through but I though I'd let you know that I really can't wait to see you in concert or opening for someone...LOL
YOUNGSTOWN: We really can't wait to let you see us. We can't wait for everyone to see us!
NANA1262: This is for you D.C.: Do you ever get bored on the road?
D.C.: No, because I amuse myself most of them time. I'll sit there and flip a piece of paper for a while and I'm happy. But I do bring video games and my
computer with me on the road all the time.
SUGARGLIDER: HEY, YOUNGSTOWN, DO ANY OF YA'LL HAVE GIRLFRIENDS? I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M CHATTING WITH YA'LL!!!!
DALLAS: No, we don't have girlfriends.
MUSICLUVER_14: Hi Youngstown! Wow, I'm SO excited! It's hard to breathe. Ummm, my questions are, do any of you have girlfriends (because you're all
gorgeous!) And how old are each of you?
DALLAS: I'm 24.
SAMMY: I'm 22
D.C.: I'm 23, and thank you for the compliment.
SWEET_STUFF99: What do you guys like to do for fun?
DALLAS: I like to go to the movies, play video games, sleep. We like to date when we get the chance.
ZOOGERATOR: Do you sing in the shower?
SAMMY: Yes, we do!
ZOOGERATOR: What are your favorite foods?
D.C.: Because the acoustics are better in the shower.
DALLAS: I like all Italian food.
D.C.: I like my mother's city chicken and twice-baked potatoes.
SAMMY: I like food, period.
BBALLGRRL: Do you guys feel obligated to be role models now that you have hit "stardom"?
YOUNGSTOWN: I don't think we feel obligated. We just try to be the best people we can be. For the most part, we're just ourselves.
DALLASFOREVER: I have a question for Youngstown. First of all, you guys are amazing, I love you all. Dallas, I love you. With all the other boybands currently out
there, how do you feel you are different from Backstreet, 'Nsync or 98 Degrees?
DALLAS: That's not really our position to say whether or not we're different. We just leave it up for our fans to decide.
MEGATIGHT: Who were your inspirations growing up, and why?
YOUNGSTOWN: Elvis Presly.
DALLAS: Michael Jackson. Journey.
D.C.: Yeah, Michael Jackson.
DALLAS: Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC
KELLY_TEE: Hey YOUNGSTOWN, what does "I'm living my life through your eyes" mean?
YOUNGSTOWN: The song is actually about a person living for the person they're in love with. I'm living for what you want me to do. I'm a part of you, you're a part
KALE12: Do you guys play pranks on each other?
DALLAS: All the time. D.C. gives it a lot.
D.C.: When he's in the shower, I'll set up a rig outside the bathroom door.
PEOPLEPERSON: How do you guys feel about doing the hit song for "Inspector Gadget" (sorry if I spelt that wrong)?
ZOOGERME4U: Did you ever think you'd be on Disney before the movie??
YOUNGSTOWN: We feel like it was a blessing. The oppportunity for us to be seen by everyone and to be attached to a cartoon we saw growing up. When people
search for record deals, the last company they think they'll be on is a Disney label.
ZOOGERATOR: How did Disney find you?
YOUNGSTOWN: We actually got a call from someone saying they had a record deal for us. We didn't believe them, so we said I quit the group.
KEN0016: Do people, friends, and family treat you the same after you got famous?
YOUNGSTOWN: But it turned out to be the real deal.
D.C.: It's kinda different. Our parents are overly proud. It's cool.
DALLAS: I have nine days off for Christmas, but I'm going to my mom's work to sign autographs and my sister's school.
D.C.: Our friends are pretty much the same now. We did get a few people who came out of the woodwork.
SAMMIE1997: Why do you guys have earrings?
D.C.: Where have you been? It's just like a necklace. It's the 90's, and jewelry is jewelry.
ZOOGERATOR: Speaking of jewelry...
DALLAS: We try to wear bracelets when people give them to us.
ZOOGERATOR: Wow. That's cool.
STARZ100: What if someone gets a sore throat?
D.C.: If it's major, we need to cancel.
DALLAS: For the most part, you can do the best you can. The show must go on.
KOMODO24: Did you have fun doing your music video?
YOUNGSTOWN: Oh, yeah.
ZOOGERATOR: Where did you guys film it?
DALLAS: Only I had food poisioning.
YOUNGSTOWN: On a soundstage in California.
BUTTRFLYPRNCSS: Will ya'll be my everything?
YOUNGSTOWN: Awwww. Yes, we will.
D.C.: And more.
SAMMYSRICAN: Sammy, do u remember me? I met u at the Broadway Mall in Hicksville Long Island... I'm the Puerto Rican who can't speak Spanish :)~
SAMMY: Oh, yeah. I remember you.
YOUNGSTOWN: It was the first time he couldn't say boriqua!
YOUNGSTOWN: It's a slang way to say Puerto Rican.
ZOOGERATOR: Oh, stellar!
ANGEL_BABY98: What do each of you look for in a girl?
DALLAS: Honesty, sincerity. A good cook and loyalty.
D.C.: Sense of humor.
SAMMY: Romantic, outgoing, sense of humor, spirituality.
ZBLULIME: Well, since you are role models to us, what would you say if you met any of us?
YOUNGSTOWN: Hello, what are you doing? What's up? Boriqua!! We'd just talk to you. It just depends on what you would ask us.
BALLERINI16: Awwwww... well I'm not a good cook... but my grandma is... she just made homemade cookies... u guys could come over and have some. *wink
DALLAS: I love cookies, do I'd love to come over! Where do you live?
GLOVERZOOG: Do you guys ever get into fights over silly things?
D.C.: Those are the only fights we get in.
DALLAS: We got into a small bicker onstage the other day, but it was so small, I forgot what it was about.
ANGELSWEETIE7: Hey guys, any advice, I just got dumped?
YOUNGSTOWN: Ouch. You realize that people who leave you were never meant to be around in the first place. There's other fish in the sea. When one bad thing
happens to you, two good things happen. That's how I look at it. Personally, even when I'm mad I think, tomorrow I'll be happy.
KELLIANN1: What I've always wanted to know is, what do you do if you get hiccups on stage?
YOUNGSTOWN: I think all bodily functions stop when you're on stage.
D.C.: I've had to burp on stage before. I'm trying to sing at the same time.
DALLAS: The new one?
CTA4000: Who came up with the party idea for the new music video?
DALLAS: Steve Willis, the director of the video.
JEWELS1810: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO PERFORM AND WHY?
DALLAS: Disneyland, it's because it's really cool, because fans come back faithfully. Every week, every show, they're there.
FLIPTURN007: Who was the coolest person you've met?
YOUNGSTOWN: Garth Brooks. And Donny and Marie.
SAMMY: I never got to meet her, but i got to say a couple of words to Tina Turner. The fans I was talking to were in awe. She looks outstanding.
LILJUKEBOX: Hi guys!!!!! Any embarassing moments on stage? Be honest =)
SAMMY: One time in Germany, for the first time my mike finally fell. The whole mike stand fell, it wasn't that sturdy. I told our fans it was a part of the routine.
I've tripped going onstage twice.
BALLERINA16: I want to know how u choose your dancers for your videos. I know you have auditions, but when???? I want to audition for one!!!!
YOUNGSTOWN: We've been really good at finding people who are our friends. We're waiting for auditions for the extra- special videos. But we're saving the best
SPIRIT124: Hey Youngstown, I like your song "I'll Be Your Everything". How many different remixes of the song are there?
D.C.: I don't know. Some radio DJs may have remixed them. We have a few versions: a capella, instrumental, the album version and the movie version.
KIMW2000: Hi Youngstown! Now that you are stars do you get on the internet alot? Kimberly, Jamaica
YOUNGSTOWN: We try to get on any time we can.
D.C.: I didn't get to bring my computer on the last tour. It's hard overseas because of the voltage. But over here I get on a lot.
RACHEL667: Sammy, I just want to congradulate you on all your success. I knew you were determined to succeed when I saw how proud you were when we all
listened to your demo tape at Rob's house. Best of luck!!!
SAMMY: Thank you so much. I'm glad you believed in me. People like you make me want to pursue my dreams.
ZOOGERIFIC4515: I love all of you guys. I first fell in love with you when you performed at Disneyland on the 18th of Sept. I LOVE YOU MARRY ME!!!
YTOWN544: What's the best life advice that you can give to your fans?
ZOOGERATOR: Good question!!!
DALLAS: I would basically say you should never settle for what life seems to have given you. Shoot for what you think in your head is possible, because if you
think it's possible, it is.
SAMMY: Listen to your heart, and not what other people tell you to do. Just keep your head up, there's a greater power out there. If you believe in yourself , then
great things will happen.
D.C.: Live life like there's not going to be a tomorrow. Always tell people you love that you can love them as much as you can.
ZOOGERATOR: Well, guys thanks so much for joining us in the Zeetharium... once again, you guys are a BLAST to chat with! We will keep listening to all the great
tunes! Good luck to all of you and come back real soon! Why? Because we like ya! Remember the contest YOUNGSTOWN in YOUR TOWN is still happening so

Sammy: When that door opened for us...
Dallas: Well, I was concerned.
DC: If we didn't think we'd make it, we wouldn't be here now.

Hiponline Interview With Youngstown!
How do you feel about doing the Disney Christmas Special?
Dallas: Great. Naturally, we know how all of the other Disney Specials have helped out all of the other groups, and it actually was a suggestion of ours also and it just made
sense and everybody else agreed.
It must have been great for the group to land the single on the Inspector Gadget soundtrack.
Dallas: Definitely. All of us grew up watching Inspector Gadget, so when the song was presented to us for the movie we couldn't turn it down. And we thought that the song was a
hit right off of the bat.
How's the album doing right now?
Dallas: We really haven't had that much time to check it. We have been on the road so much and have been doing so many shows that we really haven't been paying attention
to it, but we are going back home pretty soon and are going to check it out then.
How did you get into writing and producing?
Dallas: Actually, we all started out that way. We never really set out to be a group. We actually set out to be writers and producers, and while we were showing the demo
someone said that we were doing things just fine and that we needed to be the group. So it just kind of happened like that. And a little bit of luck and a lot of hard work,
How did you get signed to Hollywood then?
Dallas: It was weird. We were in LA showcasing the songs and somebody called and said that they had a situation for us over at Hollywood Records, which is a Disney label. So
we flew out and that day right off the plane we showcased it to the label and played the tape and sang the song. And they asked if we wrote them and we were like, 'Yes,' and
they said, 'You produced them also?' and we were like, 'Yes.' And right there on the spot they we like you guys got the deal.
Your album seems to be more R&B than other albums in your category. Do you agree?
Dallas: I mean, we have a lot of R&B influences, we have a lot of rock influences. We really just wanted to try and cater to all crowds on this album. We have pop songs, we
have really heartfelt deep songs that are for a more mature audience. But we really just do what we love to do, and we leave it up to everyone else to put it in their own
category, because music is so diverse these days. You just can't really categorize everything as much as you used to be able to do.
How would you describe your music?
Sammy: I would have to say kind of universal. We try to cater to a lot of different aspects of the music and a lot of influences along with a lot of different styles. We like the
urban hip-hop style and we like the rap thing and we dig the ballads, and I even think our forte is the ballads that we write a lot. We try to do the hype thing because we love to
dance and do energetic shows, and that's us and the way that we get down.
How important is the writing process to you?
Sammy: It is very important, mainly because it is us and what created our whole image, our love for music, and our love for each other, and our respects for each other's
talents. It's funny, because usually a group is put together by people, but with us it wasn't even like that. We just sat in the basement and wanted to create, and, little by little,
the personalities started creating as a group and people told us that we had it going on, and in the back of our minds all we wanted to do was music. God was on our side and
he opened doors for us to finally have our dreams come true.
Describe some of the early years of the group.
Sammy: It was cool. Me and Dallas lived together and we were friends, always kicking it together and going out all of the time and getting into trouble. And we argued a lot, just
like typical brother stuff. I could put up with these guys for like the rest of my life if I had to.
Did you originally do it for the love of music or because you thought it would be a good career?
Sammy: I met up with the group when I was in Georgia visiting my mom and I told them that I loved music and that we should go back and see what we could put together.
And we just wanted to create something new and just go with the flow and let it go natural and see what can come of it, and something beautiful really happened. And it's
astonishing to us when we just look back and say to ourselves, 'That really came from us.' It's a real trip.
What were some of your influences growing up?
Sammy: The King of Pop, Michael Jackson. And I grew up listening a lot to my family members. Just growing up in the church, I wasn't allowed to listen to a lot of secular music
so everything came from just watching my parents and my aunts just pouring out their heart, as far as feelings and emotions in their music, and it made me want to pursue
How would you describe the group's music?
DC: It's just kind of us. We try to hear as much criticism from everybody else, because we are just Youngstown and we just write and do our thing and what we feel. It's kind of
hard to explain, but we try to be as universal as we can with our music.
What are some of your plans for the New Year?
DC: We are doing a Disney thing for the New Year, and they are going to have our families come out so that is going to be pretty dope. Hopefully we will still be here at 12:01.
Jenny Jones Chat Interview
BB: Your band is named after Youngstown, OH. Why? What's so great about it there?
DC: We're actually all from different parts of the country. But that's where we met, and we put the group together in Youngstown
. We didn't actually call it Youngstown from the
beginning, but a friend of ours in California had the idea and thought it would be good
Dallas: As soon as I heard it, it reminded me of the old 80's bands, like Boston, Kansas, and Chicago. Immediately, I was like "yeah, that's it--that's our name!"
BB: Tell me about your current album, Let's Roll. It's your first album-what's the sound of it? How was your recording experience?
Dallas: High energy, dance. It'll make you bob your head one second, it'll make you cry the next. It's Youngstown, that's what it is. Basically we named it Let's Roll because it's
our first opportunity to get out there. It's our first chance, and we're not going to stress and worry about it. We're just going to
Sammy: Roll with it!
BB: What are each of your favorite tracks off the album?
All three in unison: Pedal to the Steel!! (laughing)
DC: Pedal is my favorite song to perform live. It's high energy and it's probably one of the doper tracks on the album.
BB: You collaborated with Kel Mitchell (of the Nickelodeon show Kenan and Kel) for that song. How did that come about?
DC: Kenan was just hilarious! The producer that actually produced the song is friends with him. He just came in to hang out and see the session and our producer asked him,
"Hey, you wanna rap on it?" And he said, "Yeah, I'll rap on it." So we all sat right there and put it together.
BB: And you guys wrote most of the songs on the album?
Dallas: We wrote five songs and produced three.
BB: Who do you hope to collaborate with in the future?
Dallas: There's a lot of people: David Foster, Diane Warren, Babyface, Michael, Teddy Riley, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Brian McKnight, a whole bunch of people!
BB: You've said that you admire artists with longevity. What does it take to achieve longevity in today's fickle industry?
Dallas: You gotta love each other.
DC: Oh yeah, definitely.
Dallas: See, that's just it. We're all here to build something together. And if at times, someone starts to feel down, then it's up to the other two to pick him back up and get him
back in it. It's what we gotta do
you gotta love what you do. Even if we didn't have a record deal, even if it wasn't such and such, I still believe we'd be back in Youngstown, OH,
writing songs in the basement of our house.
BB: Are you excited to have your single, "I'll Be Your Everything," featured on the Inspector Gadget soundtrack?
Dallas: It's been a total blessing. It just made everything that we were trying to do with our lives move that much faster.
BB: When you were little, did you watch the Inspector Gadget cartoons?
All three: Oh yeah!
DC: I've seen the movie twice.
Dallas: Missed it by that much! (imitates Inspector Gadget)
BB: What are some of your other favorite movies and TV shows?
DC: My three favorite all-time movies are Austin Powers, Happy Gilmore, and Ace Ventura.
Dallas: See, I can go category by category. Comedy: My favorite is Dumb and Dumber. Serious, like action packed movies? It'd be a cross between Bad Boys and the Matrix.
And also, the new movie The Sixth Sense.
Sammy: I love The Goonies! That was an adventure growing up
kept me creative.
BB: So the whole "boy band thing," the current phenomenon of boy bands taking off
do you think that has helped you or hurt you?
Dallas: It's helped us. I think, like I said before and I'll say it again, there's room at the top for anybody who wants to work hard enough to get there. All it takes is work, unity
and you gotta love what you do. That's why Backstreet's there, and that's why N'Sync is there, and that's why 98 Degrees is there. There's a million and one other pop groups
coming out, but they just can't grab onto that thing, and I think it's because they just don't have the unity that it takes. That's not guaranteeing that we'll get there, but we do
have that dedication and we do have that unity.
BB: Do you have any videos coming up?
Dallas: We did the Disney version of the Inspector Gadget video. On the 2nd, we have a shoot for the MTV version of the song.
BB: If your life or your experience was a Jenny Jones episode, what would the title be?
Dallas: I know what mine would be: "People who regret teasing you as a child," because I got teased so much.
DC: Mine would be "Men who are addicted to video games and the women who love them."
Live w/ Joe Biz & Gwenny G! Meet Youngstown
JoeBiz: Hey! Onliners! Are you there? Cause we are ready to blast off with our first electrifying hour of Live with JoeBiz and Gwenny G! I'm JoeBiz.
Gwenny G: And I'm Gwenny G. Welcome to our totally awesome show, full of excitement, frolic, and lots of fun-filled chat!
JoeBiz: Now some of you may be asking, "JoeBiz, what is "Live with JoeBiz & Gwenny G!"?
Gwenny G: Don't look at me, I already know what it is!
JoeBiz: For those of you who don't know, "Live with JoeBiz & Gwenny G!" is the hippest, hottest, most happening talk show online!
Gwenny G: Hosted by the 2 coolest cats around! We're coming to you LIVE from the entertainment capital of the world, Hollywood, USA. And have we got a show for you today!
Today's guest happens to be one of the hottest new music groups around!
JoeBiz: In case you're wondering which young lads we're talking about, you can hear their melodic voices singing that hit song, "I'll Be Your Everything" in the movie "Inspector
Gwenny G: That's right, thanks to Radio Disney, today's special guests are Sammy, DC, and Dallas, the talented guys from Youngstown! Let's hear it for Youngstown! And you
can hear Youngstown all the time when you tune into RADIO DISNEY. Those DJs are big fans of this talented trio!
JoeBiz: We love Radio Disney! I listen daily. (sings again)
Gwenny G: JoeBiz, please! Spare us! Now today is Wednesday, September 22. Did you know that something very important happened on this day back in 1862? President
Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, saying that slaves would be free!
JoeBiz: Freedom! We like that! You don't suppose our President would issue some sort of Proclamation about our show's debut today? Do you?
Gwenny G: What do YOU think? I think the President has more important things on his mind than to boost your ego! Sorry to burst your bubble, there, JoeBiz. Like your ego
needs any more boosting?
JoeBiz: Well, I think this IS an important event. After all, this is our very first show; what else can be more exciting?
Gwenny G: After we win our first award, then we'll see. But maybe we're jumping just a little ahead of ourselves. We've gotta do the show first!
JoeBiz: Who says no? But speaking of today, did you know that exactly one year ago today, the movie SCOOBY DOO on ZOMBIE ISLAND was released!
Gwenny G: Well, thanks for that enlightening fact JoeBiz! I don't think I'd rate it equally with The Emancipation Proclamation though!
JoeBiz: Why is everything you say always more important than what I have to say?
Gwenny G: Not everything I say is more important. Just almost anything I say. But sometimes you do come out with a winner! I seem to remember there was something you
said 6 months ago. . .
JoeBiz: Alright, moving on! Since we're dwelling on important things, why don't some of you tell us what YOU'RE celebrating today?
Gwenny G: And if you're not celebrating something today, close your eyes and imagine you're in Bulgaria, cause it's their Independence Day!
JoeBiz: Bulgaria, now that's a country! I've always wanted to visit Bulgaria. Where is Bulgaria, anyway? Isn't it somewhere across the ocean?
Gwenny G: Well, it's not in your back yard.

JoeBiz: Come on guys! Hum a few bars, will ya?
Youngstown: (singing Inspector Gadget song)
LuvDallas: How do you get your ideas for the songs you write?
Dallas: Ideas can come from anything from the one thing you love most to the one thing you hate most. It can come from pain, joy, lauging, from anything.
LuvYngstwn: How do you decide who sings what in a particular song?
Dallas: We all know each other pretty well so listening to a song we can imagine who will sing what. We imagine who will sound like what, we know each others limitations. What
one can't do the other can. It works out perfectly.
youngstownluvr16: hey i saw you guys at dineyland and it was the best night of my life...i was the one with some friends and we had those big signs! remember??

Youngstown: We love it. We love to travel. We especially love the bus. It is like you are in your home. We have everything. 2 TV's etc. We like the bus better than the plane. If

LuvDallas: Dallas, I read that the song "Jamie Lee" is a tribute to your Mother. What inspired you to write about your Mother?
Dallas: That is a good one. Basically, you have your ups and downs in your life and I wrote it to my Mom to let here know she is only human and you make mistakes. We are
all very close to our Moms.
DC: I miss my Mom now but I keep in touch with her Via Internet and phone.
Snow_Angels2000: How did you guys first get noticed? Ive wanted to be a singer all my life, and ive been singin for music festivals, concerts, and many other community
events... how do u think i could get noticed?
Dallas: Keep doing what you are doing. We started singing in malls. You never know who is listening to you.
CindyB: How did you get selected to do the "Inspector Gadget" song?
DC: It is a Disney movie and we got first dibs. Mitchell Lee came to us with the song. There wasn't a songtrack so we got the lead song for it. He came to us and everyone liked
it. It was a for sure hit.
Snow_Angels2000: song gets stuck in head *sings* hahaha
Youngstown: That is good!
Apples2: Have you guys done a lot of traveling and do you enjoy it?
Youngstown: We really enjoy it especially on the bus!

Dallas: We just shot a video for "I'll Be Your Everything". Hopefullly it will be out in the next couple of weeks. We want something out for when the album comes out.
david_watson: How did you know you wanted to sing together?
Youngstown: We were all friends and DC and Dallas have been singing together since 1995. In 1998 the deal just came together. We came out on the first trip to LA and we got
the deal. That is why the album is called "Let's Roll". We are like brothers.
DCLuvr77: My friend & I met you last Sunday at the Westminster mall, we hugged you by your van before you left, remember us?
Youngstown: Oh yes we do. What's up? Sammy wasn't around though. It was just Dallas and DC.

Sammy: I am the only one from there. I wasn't actually living with my parents. I was living on my own.
Dorothy2951: What were other names did you consider before you picked Youngstown???
Dallas: Part 4, B45, Suite4J. We were doing demos in NY and that was the apartment number. Everybody thought it was Sweet not Suite.
Nzyncfan14: Hey Youngstown! I'm sooo excited! I can't believe I'm chatting with you! Well, I was just wondering, do you have any secret crushes on any actresses or singers?
Youngstown: If we did, it wouldn't be a secret.
DCLuvr77: Describe what you look for in a girlfriend.
Dallas: Honesty, loyalty, sincerity and you have to know how to play video games.
DC: You have to have a sense of humor like myself.
Dallas: Looks is not the most important thing. Beauty has to come from within.
Nzyncfan14: Have you guys ever been to Disney World? That's my favorite place ever!
Sammy: I have been there 6 times. We are doing a WDW Special and it will air in December. We like the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland and Space Mountain rocks. We
couldn't get our manager on it though Splash Mountain is so sweet.
Sweet_Daisy13: Your so hott!!! Do you have any idea of how much fan mail you get everyday?
Dallas: We know we are getting a lot. We are so busy that we are not able to check it ourself. Our website is up so now we can look it up.
DC: I have my own email address so it can be sent on that. We check it that way.
YTown544: I see that you wear a lot of jewelry. Is there any piece of jewelry you wear that is extremely important to you?
Dallas: It is all a possession so it is not that important.
Sammy: It's cool when people give us bracelets and we wear it on stage.
DC: (points to his own necklace) This is from a fan. We wear things that fans give us. They give us cool stuff.
Nzyncfan14: Do you think your connection with "Inspector Gadget" and Disney helped to boost your career?
Dallas: Most definitely. It doesn't hurt. It was a blessing to get "Inspector Gadget". People love the song!
zooger12130189: do you guys ever fight?
Dallas: We don't fist fight or anything. We argue. Everyone is going to argue.
JoeBiz: What about?
Youngstown: You aren't going to always have the same point. We argue about clothes, bathrooms, showers, who's not ready etc. Petty stuff like that. It's a toss-up between DC
and Sammy who it takes longest to get ready.
Dallas: I was the first to start and finish today. 10 to 15 minutes to get ready for me.
Sammy: It takes me an hour. I have to shave twice a day. Sometimes I pick a cologne.
gyrodos: I'M YOUR BIGGEST FAN!
Youngstown: Thanks gyrodos!
Nzyncfan14: What is most humiliating thing that has ever happened to you when you were on-stage or on-camera?
Dallas: Sammy tripped and fell twice on stage.
Sammy: I tripped on and off the stage.
DC: I dropped my mike once.
Sammy: Once it was in the dark so nobody really saw me but I was the last one to go on and the camera people were the only ones that saw me.
Dallas: He started doing "Pedal To The Steel" routine to "Inspector Gadget". You have to laugh. You got to go with it. The audience is laughing with you.
Gwenny G: Have you guys checked out your section on the Radio Disney web site?
JoeBiz: I LOVE RADIO DISNEY! Woo Hoo!
DC: I have seen the trivia about us.
Dallas: I am in the process of buying my own computer.
sweet_q_t: Is it cool when people give us bracelet?
Youngstown: Oh yes! Very cool We love it!
Dorothy2951: Can you guys sing a little bit of Pedal to the Steel?? Plz.....

Nzyncfan14: What CD's are in your CD player right now? - Jaime
Dallas: I am in the process of sampling the old 80's music like Ozzie Ozborn and ACDC. I am into the rock and hip hop stuff.
DC: Sublime, Shania Twain, from country to rap and rock.
Sammy: Latin music to country and a lot of stuff. Mark Anthony, Jennifer Lopez. Sorry, no broadway show tunes JoeBiz!
sweet_q_t: I'M your BIGGEST fan!!!!!
DC: HI sweet_q_t! I think I have had you in my email before
sweet_q_t: What does it feel like to be FAMOUS??
Dallas: We don't even think about it. We feel the same that we did before.
DC: It is weird to have girls screaming and crying. We get off stage and we are back to us again.
DcSammyDallasRule: Guys, describe your dating style-Indiana Jones or Shakespeare In Love??!!
Dallas: Shakespeare and Jones. (laughs)
Sammy, DC, Dallas: We are all more "Shakespeare In Love". It is probably sweet and sincere. We are more that way.
Dallas: It is weird, we don't do anything new or different. Flowers, dinners, movies. A drive I did on one date. I rented a bike on a 2 seater bike.
DC: Rent videos and cuddle on the couch.
gyrodos: HAVE YOU BEEN TO CALIFORINA? AWNSER WITH MY NAME
Youngstown: We are in California right now gyrodos!
JoeBiz: You like California?
Youngstown: It is cool.
Gwenny G: What was your first impression of L.A.?

DC: Virginia is the first place I ever traveled to.
LuvDallas: What instruments do each of you play?
Dallas: Guitar and keyboards.
Sammy: Keyboards and drums.
DC: I play nothing.
zooger_will: hey guys! i am desprate to get you to answer this question! what will your next single be and will there be a video?
Youngstown: Yes there will be. The next single "Pedal To the Steel" after "I Will Be Your Everything".
Doglover: Now you guys are having a contest, "From Youngstown to Your Town." What can you tell us about that?
Youngstown: What you do is go to Disney.com and vote for your school. The one that has the most votes gets a free concert blast at your school. You can vote as many times
as you want.
DcSammyDallasRule: Okay If two or more of you were interested in the same girl - how would you handle that?
Dallas: We would all just talk to her. We would pick up her vibe and if it gets too hectic we would have to cut it off. Nothing gets between us.
Nzyncfan14: I saw you guys on "Live with Regis and KathyLee" this summer. Are you going to be on any other TV shows any time soon?
Youngstown: Yes! "Donny and Marie". They film tomorrow and air the 30th or 1st.
YTown544: What does the C in DC stand for?
Youngstown: "Confused". My real name is David. I put my whole name when I give my autograph. It is given to me by these guys in the Studio. I will forget parts when we are
recording so that is how I got it.
Dallas: That is my last name. Dallas is my last name.
DcSammyDallasRule: sammy i love you! i saw u at the disney premier and told you i love you! do you remember me? anyway when are you coming back to northern va?
Sammy: I love you too! I don't know when I will be back. Soon hopefully.

DC: When we get back we are rehearsing for a Disney Special that is airing in November. There is talk about a tour though. We don't have the schedule yet. We are dying to go
back on the bus so hopefully we will be in your town soon.
Dallas: The bus brought us together and closer than before.
IBRaeRae4U: what do you guys see you doing in like 15 years?
Dallas: Walking on crutches from the dance moves.
DC: In music and hopefully with these guys. And movies like producing.
Dallas: I would like to be producing.
JoeBiz: How about JoeBiz coming into the trio?
Youngstown: (laughs) why not?
JoeBiz: Well, we made it through our first episode!
Gwenny G: That went amazingly well! Don't you think, JoeBiz?
JoeBiz: Of course, that's because I'm such a professional. Huh?!
Gwenny G: That's what you keep telling me. But don't you think you're forgetting someone? I think we have Youngstown to thank for making this such a great show!
JoeBiz: Oh, of course, what was I thinking? Let's hear it for YOUNGSTOWN !!! (cheers)
Youngstown: Thank you very much!
Gwenny G: And don't forget the most important part of the show, the online audience!

JoeBiz: And don't forget to stop by the Radio Disney web site. They've got an awesome new look! Not to mention a whole section devoted to Youngstown! We'll be posting the
transcript from this show there at Band Headquarters. So make sure you tune into Radio Disney. Trust me folks! They play the best music! Right, Gwenny G?
Gwenny G: For once JoeBiz, you are right! So JoeBiz, are you ready to sign off?
JoeBiz: Ready Gwenny!
Gwenny G: Until next week.
JoeBiz and Gwenny G: Ciao for now!
*Youngstown interviews themselves*
Dallas: So fellas, what's been the high point so far?
Sammy: The whole Disney Premears in the Park tour we've been doing. It's our first tour together. It's been great - all the crowds
that come to see us. We love you guys.
DC: The fanfare. We love ya.
Dallas: Which of the current boy bands do you admire for the way they've handled their careers?
DC: I would say Backstreet Boys for the longevity they've had so far in the music business, and they seem pretty cool.
Sammy: Backstreet as well. They've been doing a lot of good things. Opening a lot of doors for the rest of the white band groups out here. It's cool.
Dallas: What's the best and worst advice you've ever been given?
Sammy: The best? To keep doing music. Yhe worst I would have to say is, "You're not good enough to make it in the industry."
DC: My best advice was, "Keep my head up and stay strong." And I don't think I've had any worst advice.
Dallas: Did you like school?
Sammy and DC [together]: Yeah, I love school.
Dallas: What was your favorite subject?
DC: I loved English, speech, drama, and gym.
Dallas: You seem like a drama/gym guy.
DC: I knocked out plays when I was supposed to be playing basketball.
Dallas: When you were in school, were you a jock, a nerd, a troublemaker, a brainiac, or a teacher's pet?
DC: I was a troublemaker.
Dallas: I already know what Sammy was - he was a jock.
Sammy: [agreeing] And a teacher's pet.
DC: [joking] And a nerd.
Dallas: If you could have any super power, what would it be? [pointing to Sammy] Mr. Ligtning Boy.
Sammy: Bionic eyesight, 'cause I'm blind as a bat.
DC:I would like to be able to fly. That way, I wouldn't have to ride in a plane because I hate flying in planes.
DC: Hello, and welcome to Interviews by DC. I'm your host, DC. So, why did you choose Youngstown as your name?
Sammy: That's [Youngstown, Ohio] where we all met as a group and started Youngstown.
DC: Do you remember any names that you almost used before you chose Youngstown?
Sammy: Platinum was the first.
DC: Secret Service.
DC: Three White Guys with a Lot of Names.
Dallas: A Lighter Shade of Who.
DC: No way! No, we never had that. Forget it.
Dallas: Boy Scout.
DC: Boy Scout was not even an option.
Dallas: Rising Sun was an old one.
DC: That was a good one.
DC: Are you treated differently when you go home now?
Dallas: Yeah, your family treats you different. They're really proud, but...
DC: Sammy, tell me about your first drum set.
Sammy: At the age of four, my parents got me my firsy drum set - a little Muppet Babies drum set. I was in the backyard just wailing on the drums, breaking them! So every yeah I would get a new drum set.
DC: Do all of you write the songs?
Dallas: Yes, we do. We love to. I like to produce, I think, more than I like writing.
Sammy: Definitely. Love it.
DC: Do you guys get along when you write songs or do you fight?
Dallas: We get along very well. Writing is easy for us. It's actually when we all kind of agree on something.
DC: What is your favorite song on your debut album, "Let's Roll"?
Sammy and Dallas: "Pedal to the Steel."
DC: How did you guys hook up with Kel Mitchell for "Pedal to the Steel"?
Dallas: One of the producers asked him to come in and rap on the album. And we thought it would be a great move, so we did it.
Sammy: It was really cool. He's a really funny guy, and a real comedian, on and off stage. He's a great person to work with. He's awesome.
Dallas: A great guy.
Sammy: Thank you, Kel.
DC: What's "Pedal to the Steel" about?
Dallas: "Pedal to the Steel" is a song about fun. It's a song you can bump in your car while you're cruising in your city on Friday nights.
DC: Who else would you like to collaborate with?
Sammy: Michael Jackson.
Dallas: I want to do a song with Kid Rock.
DC: And whom would you like to tour with?
Dallas: I would like to do a monster tour. I'd like to get all the boy bands together and do a tour around the world.
Sammy: So how did you guys get the song "Inspector Gadget"?
Dallas: The song was given to us by a man from Hollywood Recods. We liked it. At the time, they said it was for the soundtrack, but it turned out to be the title song and it's a blessing.
Sammy: What was your favorite part in "Inspector Gadget"?
DC: My cameo. I had about 28 lines. I was a waiter but they cut my whole scene. That was my favorite part.
Dallas: I have to say my favorite scene is the stand-off on the bridge where the good Gadget and the bad Gadget are fighting each other.
Sammy: If you were to say "Go go Gadget" which gadget would you want to come out of your body?
Dallas and DC: Go go gadget, helicopter!
Sammy: What kind of spy would you most consider yourself like - James Bond, Inspector Gadget, or Austin Powers?
DC: I would consider myself Austin Powers because I like to flex my mojo. Yeah, baby!
Sammy: That was a good one, baby. I like that.
Dallas: I would consider myself the James Bond type - sly, sneaky, but beautiful.
Sammy: I would have to say James Bond as well. He likes to be in a tuxedo, he's real smooth. And all the real high-tech gadgets. I like that.
