The group, Hanson, came into the studio, and the lead singer, Taylor, reported the band had a good deal of money – largely from their first hit, "MMMBop" – and that their parents had invested it for them given how young they were when their careers started. Taylor said he and his brothers, Isaac and Zac, were careful with their money, and that most of their expenditures involved the record label they were starting. Taylor went on to say the group was dropped from their label years ago, and that they were eventually signed to a rap label a short time after that. Taylor added it was because of this that he wanted to start his own label, and that another reason he did it was for "creative control."
Young and Attached Forever
Howard revealed that all three brothers were married, and all of them claimed the only women they'd been with sexually were their wives.
Although Isaac, who is the oldest Hanson brother, pointed out he and his wife had sex prior to tying the knot, Howard mentioned he felt the brothers made mistakes by getting married so young, and both he and Jimmy talked about how they had done the same thing when they were about 20 years old.
When Taylor acknowledged he and his brothers "grew up in church," though, Howard figured that had something to do with them getting married so young. The band's drummer, Zac, said he was a virgin when he got married, and that he set his boundaries at kissing and touching his then girlfriend's breasts over her shirt. Upon hearing that, Isaac commented those were Zac's rules for dating, and that he didn't follow them himself.
Jimmy then mentioned the reason he got married so young was because he was convinced he couldn't find another attractive woman to have sex with him, but didn't think the Hanson brothers ever had the same problem. However, Taylor insisted he didn't consider himself good looking, but Howard assured him he, along with his brothers, were attractive.
Taylor reported he met the woman who became his wife at a concert, and denied Howard's assertion that she wanted to have sex with him prior to their marriage, despite their five-year courtship.
Taylor added that, while he now enjoyed sex with his wife, he still didn't understand why it was made out to be what it was in our culture, and Howard acknowledged he felt the guys' parents "did a great job" raising them.
After talking about how they had three other siblings, none of whom were involved in show business, the band played "Never Been to Spain" by Three Dog Night, which got a round of applause from people in the studio. Howard also took calls from listeners who enjoyed the performance as well, and the band played the Doobie Brothers' "Long Train Runnin'" as well.
