FULL interview from @pils13: Joe Jonas (23) leaves silently the trailer that is park next to the stage, he glances up and goes to the chemical toilets- he takes as long as any human- and comes back to his trailer. Matt Petroff (his manager controls with the watch on his arm, every movement of the band members of the most successful and famous band in the last years ( they have sold more than 20 millions CD worldwide since their appearance in 2007).
They called us by our name and let us in in holy ground where any girl who is waiting behind the gate wish they could be: the dressing room. Relaxed, the three brothers greeted us (Just in case I dodge Joe’s hand and kissed his cheek) and the jokes start: ‘We are sorry for the mess, but we had no time to clean. It happens when you are on tour and the mess wins us over’ says Kevin (25). Red couches, cover windows with black paper, music coming out of a cell-phone, a/c to kill the 30° (Celsius), different kinds of pizza, Starbucks coffee and water, lots of water, surrounds the trio.
No diva deal: no blue roses petals cover the ground, no chocolates brought from south-east Asia form a 3 people town. They are normal dudes until they hit the stage. ‘Do you mind if we try some food while we do the interview? Truth is, I haven’t had breakfast and I have a long day ahead of us,” Nick (20) explains, even when he skipped lunch, since he tells us he is hungry at 3 p.m.
-I see that you feel comfortable in Argentina after your 3rd visit. Is there any special reason why? Nick: The women are beautiful! What other reason would we have? (laughs) Joe: It is a country that we could never leave out of our tour because we feel so comfortable. It is incredible how demonstrative the audience is and we artist we feel so flatter to feel this love. That’s why, why not be thankful and come back to those places?
Joe: I think we are firm with who we are and want we want to offer as a band. If we had or moment, that we need to separate, we never lost track of what the audience wanted with the band. Nick: It is also a matter of character. The three of us are people with lot of ego, in the good sense of the word. If only one of us stands out, the other two will just quit. And it is not like that, it is the opposite: All three of us stand out.
Kevin: The Argentinean are very passionate. Viva Argentina! -I hope not to read that you say the same about other countries. Kevin: No really! Here we lived so many crazy stories, in all our years as artists. For Example, once some girl hide in the sound equipment and appear back stage, the day of the show. Another time, they got in the hotel as the cleaning service. That is awesome.. it is creative, and daring. -In this six years as artists. What they you learn about the show business?
Kevin: I can’t even begin with studio work. We discusses all the discussions. Because other than a band we are a family. And working with family is…like everything else.
-Good or bad?
Kevin: It is good to reach our goals and bad because we have no filter. We argue and make up like any other family. We learn a lot about us and about the stories that surround us.
-Reaching succession so young did turn you into something strange? I mean, do you suffer from stranger lookers or critics?
Nick: Life gave us a lot of lessons. The years stabilise our career What bother us at the begin we understand it now. We don’t live away from the social media. We are open to listen to the bad and the good things about us, they are useful for learning. In the meantime we enjoy the road.
-What makes you sound so authentic?
Joe: The need to offer a good recording material. We take our time to come out with an album. We don’t have any pressure when we work. it is a relief.
-How is it living surrounded by so many people?
Joe: We spend so many days touring that we become a big family. After every show we like to hang out and relax sometime. The stage is a place with a lot of adrenaline it is hard finishing a show and going to sleep. ( He gets closer to the recorder and whispered). In general we stay up until the next day. It is like our guilty pleasure,but we end up exhausted.
-Do you enjoy doing interview or is it the bad side of fame?
Kevin: there are creative and entertaining questions. Sometimes, we are surprise…We understand that is part of our job.
Nick: It is a way to reach our audience.
-Do you think of changing your style or do you want to remain with your original ones?
Joe: In life you have to evolve. We are going to be honest with how we are, with the passion that makes us.
Matt announces the end of the interview.

The track list that excited the audience were: Paranoid, Still in Love with you, BB Good, Last Time Around, That’s just the way we roll, Play my music, Give love a try, Gotta find you, Let’s go, Just in love, Who I am, Fly With me, Wedding bells, hello beautiful, love bug, When you look me in the eyes( song that marked the beginning of their career in 2007), SOS, and Burnin’ Up. There was also a very emotional moment, where the band dedicated a song for Sofia Koch. She was a fan, that passed away Friday night in a car accident while travelling to town to enjoy her idols concert. From those feelings are the Jonas made too.
