I haven’t updated here in a while, however if you follow me on twitter I have been updating a little there.
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.
There’s a video with Sarah and Ned up on The Nest’s website (under Real Home Tours).
Taylor and Louie have a new video up on their accurateportrayor vimeo
As for Robert, he has posted some videos and pictures via his twitter… Go check it out. www.twitter.com/rcschwartzman
Taylor Locke stage dives
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
Wow, there’s quite a few things happening these days… yay
First of all CONGRATULATIONS to Sarah & Ned. Emmett Andrew Brower has been born and he looks adorable
Ned tweeted this picture from his twitter
Ned’s been busy, he also attended the 2010 NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, where you could catch him at the Ludwig booth
Here’s some pictures from Ludwig-Musser Drums and Percussion’s facebook
Taylor has been hanging out with Bleu, recording a song called Boston.
You can read more about that here :)
Robert has been talking to D.A. from Chester French. Personally I’d love to see them do something together, or at least have D.A telling Robert/Rooney a little about how to promote themselves and keep fans happy
Robert also tweeted about recording a song with Joe Jonas…
For all these juicy updates, follow Robert on Twitter
Miranda from the Rooney street team (and Rooney-band.com) found this little thing the other day, and I found it really funny ;P
Rumor has it, Ed Rooney, an avid adversary of the ironically titled band, Rooney, is on the hunt for the five men who form the rock group. Apparently, the high school principal has left his Shermer home in hopes of reaching Los Angeles by the end of the week. Rooney (the principal, not the band) has been known to destroy a good time, or try to anyway. The band has declined to comment. In related news, Ferris Bueller has won the lottery.
Meanwhile, a pack of friendly guys with loose sleeves and bell-bottoms relax by a swimming pool. Never has a band been so unquestionably dutiful to a hometown. Or a home state, for that matter. Before a sun-kissed throng of Marissa Cooper’s and Summer Roberts’, with the grizzly bear flag flapping in the bonfire breeze, these guys, together known as Rooney, let the whole world know just how much they love California.
And, boy, is John Hughes insulted.
A diehard for his own home state, Hughes worked hard to convert the nation’s adolescents, in the prime of their angst, to the ear-muffed joys of the Windy City through the innocently sensual bite of Molly Ringwald’s bottom lip. (A smart man, that Hughes.) But now he scoffs at the L.A. based group that does nothing but rob this already regressing generation of what is really out there, beyond the bleached blonde shores of Southern California, to a place where sixteenth birthdays are often forgotten, where beautiful women are technologically created, and where Buzz eats all the cheese pizza. The band neglects a little place called Illinois… all in the name of a legendary 80s character.
Uniting under the mustached title of ‘Ed Rooney’ in 1999, Robert Schwartzman, Louie Stephens, Taylor Locke, Ned Brower, and Matthew Winter quickly dropped the first name, opting for a more Ferrisian effect with plain old ‘Rooney’ (hence the lack of propriety in the absence of Ed and/or “Mr.”) As harsh-weathered fans of the classic 1986 hit Italic textFerris Bueller’s Day OffItalic text, the rebellious group identified themselves in salutatory ode to the man who, in essence, made Ferris Bueller’s day off the exhilarating ride that it was.
A surprise this was not to most followers. Schwartzman, the animated lead singer and former actor, is a multi-gifted descendent of The Royal Coppolas. Nephew of Vito Corleone’s written voice, son of the shy face behind “Yo, Adrian!”, cousin of the founder of Bill Murray’s translation, brother of Max freaking Fischer; one had to only assume that his next project would somehow correlate to his insane tie to cinematic brilliance. Robert, as well as his less-genetically-privileged bandmates, often express their fervent passion for The Arts in general; whether be it music, film, sketching, or literature.
However, Rooney has established their respectable foundation based on the fact that they adore Southern California, albeit amidst a plethora of high-pitched squeals and pigtails. Such a reputation has caused many skeptics, John Hughes included, to wonder “Why not ‘Wayne‘, ‘Hasselhoff’, ‘Schwarzenegger’?”
“Why,” asks Hughes, “must you sabotage my homeland, my craft, my Ed Rooney?”
They laugh in response, their growing hair blowing out the convertible windows on a drive down Pacific Coast Highway. “Because,” they say in harmonic unison, “we’re on the trip of our lives under a California sun, and he’s still trying to catch us.”

According to People.com Sarah and Ned are expecting an addition to the family early next year. Congratulations
“Actress Sarah Jane Morris and husband Ned Brower of the band Rooney are expecting their first child early next year, they tell PEOPLE exclusively.
Morris will be shooting an episode of CBS’s The Ghost Whisperer next week. And while there’s been speculation whether Morris’ character will return this season to ABC’s Brothers & Sisters, there’s been no official word yet. The father-to-be is in the studio working on Rooney’s next album.
