Wow, can’t believe it’s been this long since I’ve posted. Don’t have anything too interesting to say, just wanted to make sure you all knew about the “Not in My House” tour that’s starting tomorrow.
Also, rumor has it that Rooney is coming back to Germany in March.
Here’s the official music video for “Watching You” by jr.
I’m not too sure what the deal is with jr., but I think I remember Robert tweeting about this video shoot back in September? Anywho, I like the song and the video. Check it out
(Was just told that jr. is Robert and John Taylor from Ocean Grove Band / The Jonas Brothers)
Director: Gia Coppola
Cinematography: Matthew Lloyd
Editor: Eric Maldin

Huge thanks to Sam for letting me know about the video
In case you missed it, Rooney played at a benefit for IMAGINE THERE’S NO HUNGER, taking place at the Hard Rock Cafe in Hollywood the other day.

While you are considering your contribution, check out these videos from the benefit.
Rooney – Happy Christmas (War is Over)
Rooney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter, Dave Stewart, Lucy Walsh and more – Give Peace A Chance
There’s more videos from the benefit on the LAwomanPhotography youtube channel.
Also, remember that Rooney is releasing a 5 track Christmas EP this year. The only info so far is that it’ll be released on December 1st.
In case you haven’t heard, Taylor and his band “Taylor Locke & the Roughs” have just released a new album. The album is called Marathon and is, in my humble opinion, even better than Grain and Grape.
You can get Marathon on iTunes or as a physical copy straight from the Roughs (by paying via paypal).
And if you haven’t bought Grain and Grape yet, I will strongly recommend that you do.
For more information on Taylor Locke & the Roughs visit TLATR.com, where you can also find the links to all the Roughs official social network sites like twitter, facebook etc.
Also remember that Ned has his own solo album out called Great to Say Hello.
You can get this album via paypal on nedbrower.com
Last but not least, Robert has a Solobob song up on iTunes called Fantastic 15.

There’s a couple of things I wanted to let you know about.
Rooney will be touring in Germany in October. All the dates are up here as well as on Rooney-band.com. Tickets can be bought via artisttickets.com. This is the first time Rooney is touring in Europe since spring 2008, so make sure you go to a show if you can make it.
Matt, Taylor and Ned (yes, I said MATT) will be joining Bleu & Mike Viola at 11pm (show starts at 9pm) for a special night with friends on September 22nd at the Hotel Cafe. Chris Price from Taylor Locke & the Roughs will also be joining them.
There’s a Eureka trailer up on pop24.de with interview parts with Rooney.

I don’t know if you’ve heard it, but at the very last Hanson/Rooney show, Rooney came out while Hanson played Mmmbop. At the very end of the video Taylor jumps head first into the crowd (at 6:20). Kudos Taylor, hope you didn’t hurt anyone
