Adam sits down 1-on-1 with ‘nice guy’ Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath. Mark’s incredibly modest about his band experience, and tells Adam about how his mom raised him to be polite. Adam agrees they’re both lucky to have grown up in the US, and they talk about their love of music growing up.
Adam also reflects on a recent hangout he had with Mark where Mark mentioned a burning question Adam has longed to know the answer for. They talk about raising twins, working hard all day, and still having to pickup the Chinese food at the end of the day. Mark also talks about seeing Adam perform in Irvine, and applauds his ability to improvise so well.
After more talk about performing with Sugar Ray, Mark asks Adam about the Jim Breuer controversy. Adam explains what happens, and also talks to Mark about how growing up on different coasts meant you were exposed to different music. They end up breaking down a bunch of songs from a classic film from Adam’s childhood: Phantom of the Paradise. Bringing thing to a close, Adam talks about running with the wrong crowd in high school, and tells the story of how he got beat up with a baseball bat.
Watch Mark on VH1s ‘Don’t Forget the Lyrics,’ Monday through Friday at 7pmPST.
Also keep an eye out for him on Celebrity Apprentice in January.
