Chevelle Is A Family Business

In a recent interview with the Associated Press, Chevelle singer/guitarist Pete Loeffler talks about what it's like to be in a band with siblings:

AP: You've been on tour since late October. Any good stories yet?

Loeffler: Since we're all brothers, we kind of fight and bicker a lot. First day of this tour, Joe destroyed his bass. Smashed it on the ground. He was ticked off at Sam. Chucked it at Sam. It was bad. The tour was over before it even started. Then we ended up patching it up that night and left the next morning. That's pretty much what we deal with on the road. That's the negative part of being in a band with brothers, and there's a lot of good stuff.

AP: What's it like being in a band with your two brothers?

Loeffler: You never know what side of the bed somebody's gonna roll off - roll out of their bunk and be in a good mood or a bad mood. We can come off stage and have a great show, and we can walk into the dressing room and somebody will just blow up at the other person for no reason. We have all this baggage that we brought into this. It's tough. I would never suggest it. When it works, it's amazing. But when it doesn't, it's hell. We're like literally living in hell. They're my brothers, but you know what, you shouldn't necessarily work with family.
