In the latest APTV MI Conversation Series video, hosted by Ryan J. Downey, Brendon Urie talked about growing up in a religious home, playing in high school bands and forming what eventually became Panic! At The Disco.
As a teenager, Urie regularly attended hardcore performances. He talked about an intense junkyard concert that ended in a dangerous brawl, which was enough to push him away from going to shows for two months.
When asked about the myth of Panic! At The Disco starting as a Blink-182 cover band, Urie dispelled the rumor. Urie and his band performed covers of Blink-182 in their early years to get used to playing with each other.
“You have to play other people’s stuff to get a feel for each other, if you want to play with each other,” says Urie.
