Entertainment Weekly has a piece about Bobby Long. For those of you living under a rock: Bobby is Rob's long time friend and the co-writer of Let Me Sign. Check out his music, he is really soulful.
I am posting this because he talks a bit about Rob, Twilight premiere and McLovin': 3 things I adore :)
Here is a part of his interview with EW:
Friendship with Twilight dreamboat Robert Pattinson has its privileges. Twenty-two-year-old singer-songwriter Bobby Long met the then-struggling actor a while back at the popular London open-mic Up All Night, and the pair quickly became close; since then, the 2008 release of the film soundtrack's spare, gravelly ballad "Let Me Sign," sung by Pattinson and penned by Long and friend Marcus Foster, has suddenly catapulted Long into a whole new world of Twi-fans and frenzied media attention.
On a visit today to EW's offices, the lanky, swoopy-haired Brit talked to us about his upcoming American tour dates, and the hazards of ancillary -- if still white-hot -- fame. "Rob gets it 99 million percent more," Long admits, "but it's still mad. He and I went to the premiere in London together, and he was just getting molested right and left. For me, it's clearly not as extreme, but it's still amazing to watch. And you know," he adds with a laugh, "there was free booze everywhere, so we got quite drunk and I just kept bothering the guy from Superbad, McLovin'. He was very nice about it." (Gozde: I really want to get drunk with these guys! I know... I'll get in line...:))Keep reading about Bobby's shows in New York and his US tour HERE.
