Jack's Mannequin

Andrew McMahon, a High School friend of mine, who after climbing the Bilboard 100 as lead singer for the punk rock band Something Coroporate, was diagnosed with Cancer in 2005. After a terrifying struggle he beat the odds and is now in remission and back to doing what he loves. Andrew has once again made a name for himself, only this time as Jack's Mannequin. For a short video about his fascinating story watch THIS.



Andrew's newest video "The Resolution" was just released this week on MTV.com. His sound is as brilliant as ever. And for all you Twilight fans out there, you might be interested to know that Stephanie Meyer, author of the famous Twighlight series was involved in the production and in fact came up with the concept for the video. Let me know what you think!


Andrew...you're still the man...the McMahon.
